It is important to know how to evaluate the effectiveness of an evidence-based practice (EBP) project. My evidence-based project is educating heart failure patients on compliance of medication and lifestyle changes to prevent hospitalization. Encouraging patient education, stressing on the importance of lifestyle management, educating about medication compliance, and involving other additional staff to ensure that the patients has follow-up appointments scheduled has decreased the readmission rate by 50% (Nair et al., 2020). The way that the HF medication and lifestyle compliance can be evaluated is by assessing the improvement of symptom management and quality of life, decrease hospitalization, and decrease overall mortality associated with the disease (Malik et al., 2021).
Some other ways the HF condition can be monitored is by evaluating routine lab work as ordered by the physician. For example, a comprehensive laboratory analysis including assessment for anemia, iron deficiency, renal dysfunction, and liver dysfunction is needed to help elucidate the severity of HF (Malik et al., 2021). Patient’s medical record and meetings amongst nursing staff and other direct healthcare providers can also help assess and evaluate the HF patient’s condition if the EBP project is effective or not. The HF patient can also keep track of their own symptoms and lifestyle changes through the use of a diary that can help the nursing staff to evaluate the patient’s condition during follow-up visits. The patient can be educated to keep a HF diary (e.g., to monitor weight) and the documented entries can be discussed during follow-up visit (Unverzagt et al., 2017).
