The Interrelationship Between Theory, Knowledge, and Research and Evidence-Based Practice
Fawcett and Garity (2009) present an overview of the relationship between theory, knowledge, research, nursing research, and evidence-based practice (see attached file). As you prepare for this Discussion, reflect on your own specialty area and consider how the authors’ definitions of evidence-based practice and of research align with your understanding of these concepts based on your professional experiences and your experiences as a doctoral student embarking on your EBP Project.
- Reflect on Fawcett and Garity’s definitions of knowledge, theory, research and evidence-based practice presented in the Learning Resources. How do these definitions align with your understanding of the concepts?
- How does this interrelationship support or guide your EBP Project?
By Wednesday 9/19/18 by 1:00 am please write a minimum of 550 words essay in APA format with at least 3 scholarly references from the list of required resources below. Include the level 1 headings as numbered below:
Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:
1) How do Fawcett and Garity’s (see attached file)definitions align with your understanding of knowledge, theory, research and evidence-based practice? Support your response with evidence from the literature (quote the literature below in the required readings).
2) Discuss the interrelationship between theory, knowledge, research and evidence-based practice.
3) How does this interrelationship support or guide your EBP Project?

In patients in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility in Eastern United States, how does early mobilization as recommended by National Institute of Health and Care Excellence clinical guidelines on rehabilitation of patients after critical illness impact early transfers from intensive care as measured 6 months post-implementation when compared to the current standard of care including minimal mobilization of patients?
P: Adult patients
I: in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility
I: increased mobilization of the patients
C: minimal mobilization of the patients
O: early transfers of the patients from intensive care
T: 6 months
