Explain why these quality improvement tools are most useful in addressing your quality improvement practice problem.
Explain how you would apply a quality improvement process to your quality improvement practice problem.
Recommend an evidence-based practice plan that will address your quality improvement practice problem. Support your evidence-based practice plan by synthesizing a minimum of five (5) peer-reviewed, evidence-based resources found through a literature search
Be sure to integrate capstone-level writing guidelines in the completion of your Comprehensive Paper. This is an expectation of the completion of this program and is a requirement for future study in graduate school.

Part 2. Storyboard

A Quality Improvement storyboard is required for this competency. The Practice Experience Project Storyboard is a brief, visual summary of a completed Quality Improvement initiative. The storyboard highlights key aspects of a quality improvement effort by documenting the Practice Experience Project from beginning to end. The competency template uses a PowerPoint format to complete this assignment. Only two slides are required. The first slide is the summary of the Quality Improvement Project; the second slide is the reference page. Choose the most pertinent information from your Comprehensive Paper to complete the Storyboard. A template is provided to guide you as you develop your storyboard.
