Conduct an informal interview, focusing on the participant’s developmental history.
Consider the following:
Family history and background
School environment and educational experience
Employment and volunteer work
Partnerships and parenthood
Significant life events
Significant life transitions
In addition to interview data, you may also obtain information from significant others, behavioral observations during the interview, and records (e.g. school reports, family albums, diaries, etc).
Part I: Document the questions you asked and the participant’s responses. This is your interview ‘transcript’ that will be turned in along with your reflective paper.
Part II : Write about 1,050 words reflecting on the interview. In your paper, include information on the following:
What were the most notable aspects of the interview? What topics did your interviewee respond strongly to and why?
What were the most surprising aspects of the interview? Did any of the interviewee’s responses surprise you? Explain.
What stood out as being most important in his/her life? Describe the interviewee’s most significant or meaningful life events.
What life transitions did your interviewee discuss? Did he/she disclose any specific strategies for coping with difficult life transitions? Describe the interviewee’s most challenging transitions.
Explain what you learned from this experience.
Use the literature in gerontology, wisdom and successful aging to supplement your paper and support your points.
Include at least three references from scholarly sources.

Evidence based practice is very much involved in our everyday practice as a nurse
Evidence based practice is very much involved in our everyday practice as a nurse. Evidenced based practice is the most important element needed to give the best and ensure positive and improved patient outcomes. EBP involves several basic steps to determine if a policy and procedure will improve patient care and improve the quality of nursing care. EBP focuses on outcomes and scientific data collection. The steps are as follows. Ask a clinical question, search for evidence that best supports this theory, critically appraise the evidence, introduce the evidence to patient preferences and values along with clinical expertise, determine the outcome of the procedure or the changes that have been made based off new evidence, and finally study the EBP results. (Friberg, E and Creasia,F, 2016).
Nursing profession requires us as nurses to be in a field that is always evolving and growing with new information and new procedures and policies. We must be in the forefront as new EBP practices are formed and be involved in the critical thinking and analyzing step of the EBP. On a daily basis we practice and use policies that were formed based off evidence that was found to be in the favor of our patients. We should be continually studying and learning what is best for our patients by using the science and evidence behind EBP. (Friberg, E and Creasia,F, 2016).
A current policy and procedure that my hospital has just recently begun doing that was based on EBP is using a CHG bath for all patients with central lines or catheters. EBP showed that a CHG bath every day was associated with reduced risks of acquiring CLABSI, CAUTI,MRSA, and VRE for patients with central lines/ catheters. As we all know from working on the floor a very common risk for patients with central lines/catheters are hospital acquired infections. These lead to longer hospital stays and sometimes are fatal for our patients. Through trials and evidence based off patients in hospitals many studies and scientific data were calculated to determine if patients would benefit from a CHG bath. After these studies proved to improve patient care, our hospital adapted this policy and now our patients receive a CHG bath daily. ( Kim,H, Lee,W, Na,S, Roh,Y,Shin,C, Kim, J, 2016).
