Not all EBP projects result in statistically significant results. Define clinical significance, and explain the difference between clinical and statistical significance. How can you use clinical significance to support positive outcomes in your project?


(Viv Ez 6/3)


Statistically, significant differences suggest there is a correlation or difference between variables that are not just a result of chance. As you can see, the probability (p-value) is a statistical measure of the likelihood that the results are not due to actual differences between variables but a random occurrence. One more step must be taken to establish the clinical significance of statistically significant differences. A statistically significant finding is clinically important if experts in the area believe it is large enough to be clinically useful and so should influence the course of patient care (Heavey, 2015) 

My capstone change project will have better outcomes if I can reduce the number of CAUTI infections. Consistent documenting of data related to catheter insertion and care for CAUTI can help attain this goal. System-huge changes, training, and procedures to reduce catheter insertion and dwell time are all part of the greatest preventative strategies. 

 CAUTIs in hospitals can be effectively prevented and reduced by consistent dedication from staff catheters in all hospital departments. It is the responsibility of nurses to provide most of the everyday care and protection. CAUTI can be prevented by enhancing nurses’ awareness and training. proposal. Utilize interprofessional collaboration to demonstrate how potential obstacles will be overcome in your change proposal for the capstone project.
