I am working on my research topic for my class and this is what I've come up with so far:
|Patient Problem or Population
||Intervention or Exposure
||Comparison or Control
|In the nursing rehabilitation setting
||does specialized nursing programs
||Versus higher educated nurses
||Provide adequate patient outcomes
My facility does "programs" for orthopedic, respiratory, cardiac, and diabetes patients, but I don't feel like they are a one-size fits all type program and we could potentially continue to see RTAs.
I know I'll be able to find plenty of articles that say higher education provides a better patient outcome. I will be following the QI meetings at work to F/U on RTAs and the specialized program.
