Topic: Prevention of Catheter Acquired Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI)
Patient Safety Change Project: Develop a change plan to decrease patient risk and improve patient safety while in a health care facility of the community. Utilizing
the QSEN website (https://qsen.org/competencies/pre-licensure-ksas/), select an area of patient safety from the undergraduate KSAs. (I have chosen Prevention of
Catheter Acquired Urinary Tract Infections, preferably using the “Safety” KSA.
Element 1 Identification of the problem and background from the literature as to the scope of the problem (20 points)
The authors present a comprehensive review of the problem selected. The problem statement must be clearly stated and supported from the literature. The area of QSEN
competencies should be indentified and supported. Any opposing information from the literature should also be presented, if found. This should be 2-3 short paragraphs
in length and follow APA guidelines. (There probably would not be any opposing literature)
Element 2 Identification and short discussion of the change theory selected (20 points)
The authors select a change theory applicable to proposed change. The change theory is described and referenced. This should be 2-3 paragraphs in length and follow APA
Element 3 Root cause analysis and discussion of the stake holders (30 points)
The authors will conduct a thorough root cause analysis of the problem (a diagram may be used), using evidence from the literature. This section also includes the
discussion of stakeholders, both internal and external who may be affected by the change. This should be 3-4 paragraphs and follow APA guidelines.
Should be at least 2-3 using scholarly/peer-reviewed journals/articles
One resource should be the QSEN website listed above
