Question Description
Assignment: Evidence-Based Practice and the Quadruple Aim

Healthcare organizations are constantly striving to improve healthcare performance. For many years, this approach was known as the Triple Aim, with efforts focusing on improved population health, improved patient experience, and lower healthcare costs.

This approach has recently evolved to a Quadruple Aim by including a focus on improving healthcare providers’ work lives. Each of these measures is influenced by organizational decisions, and organizations are increasingly turning to EBP to inform and justify these decisions.

To Get Ready:

Assignment for Week 1

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.

Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
