Clinical Practice Guideline on Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Adolescent Overweight and Obesity for primary care clinic

Clinical Practice Guideline on Assessment, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Adolescent Overweight and Obesity for primary care clinic The following checklist provides a tool to develop Projects in healthcare contexts. The project involves multiple steps, including identification of the local problem and development of the practice-focused question(s) to address it (Section 1), review of the background and context related to the problem (Section 2), systematic collection and analysis of evidence to inform a solution or strategy that addresses the practice-focused question(s) (Section 3), and product(s) or recommendation(s)-for-action based on that analysis (Section 4).  

  • Instructions for students:
    • Indicate on the checklist the page numbers (use the actual document page number, not the MS Word pagination) where the appropriate content is located.
    • Respond to comments from your supervisory committee and/or URR members in the comment history box. Do not delete previous comments¾just add your response and use some means to clearly identify your remarks (e.g., colored, bolded, or italicized text).
    • Provide specific feedback in the comment history column. Do not delete previous comments¾just add your response and use some means to clearly identify your remarks (e.g., colored, bolded, or italicized text).
    • If you made detailed comments on the draft (using track changes and comments), you can make reference to such comments in the draft rather than copy the text into the checklist comment history section.

SECTION 1: Introduction
Checklist Items Pg/NA Comment History
Introduction
Briefly introduce the topic/problem, the nature of the DNP doctoral project, and potential positive social change implications of the doctoral project (later sections will allow you to elaborate).
Problem Statement
Explicitly state the local nursing practice problem that is the focus of this doctoral project.  
Briefly clarify the local relevance of the need to address the problem, by highlighting documentation and information about the problem.
Briefly explain how the doctoral project holds significance for the field of nursing practice.
Purpose
Describe the meaningful gap-in-practice that this doctoral project addresses.      
State the guiding practice-focused question(s) for this doctoral project.
Clarify how this doctoral project has potential to address that gap-in-practice.
Nature of the Doctoral Project
Briefly identify the sources of evidence that will be collected to meet the purpose of this doctoral project, and how they will be obtained (you will elaborate on these topics in Section 3, and you will change the tense in the final document).                                              
Briefly summarize the approach that will be used in this doctoral project to organize and analyze the evidence (you will elaborate on this topic in the Section 3, and you will change the tense in the final document).
Include a concise statement of the doctoral project purpose that connects the gap-in-practice to the anticipated findings from that analysis.
Note: Evidence from organizations or people cannot be collected and/or analyzed prior to approval by the Walden University Institutional Review Board (IRB). Only published evidence (e.g., articles, books, or reports that are accessible to anyone in the public) may be analyzed prior to IRB approval.
Significance
Identify all stakeholders and how they may be potentially impacted by addressing the local problem.  
Identify potential contributions of the doctoral project to nursing practice.
Highlight any potential transferability of the doctoral project to similar practice areas.
Describe potential implications for positive social change.
Summary

SECTION 2: Background and Context
Checklist Items Pg/NA Comment History
Introduction
Restate the practice problem, the practice-focused question(s), and purpose for this doctoral project.
Preview the major headings of this Section.
Concepts, Models, and Theories
Name, describe, and provide a rationale for the use of all concepts, models, and/or theories that inform the doctoral project.  
Synthesize primary writings by key theorists, philosophers, and/or foundational/seminal scholars related to the concepts, models, and/or theories used in the doctoral project.

Relevance to Nursing Practice
Citing existing scholarship on the topic, provide a brief history of the broader problem in nursing practice in which this specific doctoral project is embedded.  
Also relying on existing scholarship and research, summarize the current state of nursing practice in this area, and any recommendations to improve practice as appropriate.
Identify any strategies and standard practices that have been used previously to address this gap-in-practice (i.e., how have others approached this issue in the past?)
Describe how the present doctoral project advances nursing practice or fills at least one gap-in-practice revealed in the literature.
Local Background and Context
Provide a concise summary of the local evidence on the relevance of the problem, which justifies the practice-focused questions (s) (i.e., why examine this topic in the first place?). All evidence used to answer the practice-focused question(s) will be covered in Section 3.
