Health Care Priority Issue
For our final project, we will examine how priority health care issues should be examined by nursing. We will select a key health care priority issue and a population. You will find articles that describe nursing interventions designed to improve patient outcomes for your population and health care priority issue. Finally, you will discuss why Quality Improvement is important for patients and then you will describe how nursing values can be used to help improve patient care. Write a 5-6 page APA style paper (excluding title page and reference page). No more than six pages of content will be accepted. A minimum of five scholarly references will be required.
Access the Priority Areas for National Action: Transforming Health Quality and read Chapter 3: Priority Areas for Quality Improvement, pages 41-45.

From these two nursing articles, select a total of three (no more or less than three) key nursing interventions that improved patient outcomes and discusses each three interventions and three patient outcomes.

Using the interventions from the articles/studies, describe how you would recommend a Quality Initiative (QI) to improve patient care within a healthcare facility (hospital) and explain why this QI would be important to implement for patients.
Nursing, Quality, and Outcomes – (heading)
Discuss why it is important for nursing to be involved in quality initiatives and explain how two professional nursing values can help to improve patient care.
