Pick a common (or not so common) preventative health topic and find 3 different

Pick a common (or not so common) preventative health topic and find 3 different evidence-based (EBP) resources that address that preventative health issue.  Discuss the quality of the sources, the content of the topic, and determine if each of the sources agrees/match with each other.  Provide discussion related to management of your decision-making if the sources do not match.
Please post your EBP Resources early so others will have an opportunity to respond to your post by the deadline. And, you can respond to their post as well.
For example, smoking cessation is the topic. The 3 EBP sources chosen for comparison are CDC.gov, smokefree.gov, and American Lung Association. Present content regarding smoking cessation from the 3 sources and compare. Provide analysis of the strength of the sources and the provider is to manage the discrepancies of content.  You cannot use this example for your post.

Identify an outcome of nursing practice in your area of practice that can be imp

Identify an outcome of nursing practice in your area of practice that can be improved.  For example, if you work in home health, you may identify that throw rug use by fall risk patients is too prevalent.  You may be able to use the problem that inspired the theory concepts that you developed in week two.
Briefly support why it is a problem with evidence from the literature. This is not the major focus of the assignment so do not elaborate.
Create a clinical nursing (not medical) theory in the form Concept A | Proposition | Concept B. Think of the structure like two nouns and a verb. While the term proposition is much more complex in the dictionary, in our use it is the connecting term between the two concepts. Examples include Concept A improves Concept B, Concept A is related to Concept B, when Concept A increases then Concept B also increases, etc. When you get to research, you will explore this further as you develop independent and dependent variables. How to use these statistically will come in research and statistics courses.
This clinical theory is identified as an empirical theory when you get to the C-T-E model later in this course. It is empirical in that they can be measured.
Identify and define your concepts. Identify how they could be measured in a research study. Be careful that you do not use compound concepts. If you find the words “and” or “or” in your theory, you are probably too complex.
