Reasoning in a Specialty Area
Bring to mind an important practice-related decision you have made recently. How did you approach this decision? What aspects of your specialty expertise informed your decision-making?
Evaluate your decision now in light of the principles of clinical reasoning presented in the Learning Resources this week. What new insights arise about your decision making as you look at it through this lens? What questions emerge as you reflect how you use reasoning in your practice?
In this Discussion, you and your colleagues examine the application of reasoning strategies in your specialty area of practice, particularly as it is connected to your EBP Project question.
By Day tomorrow 09/04/18 12 by 10 pm, write a minimum of 550 words in APA format with at least 3 references from the list of required resources below. Include the level one headers as numbered below:
Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:
1) How are reasoning strategies most often applied in your specialty area? Provide at least two specific examples supported by the literature.
2) How can you apply reasoning strategies to the refinement of your EBP Project question(s)? (see PIICOT Question below at the end of the page)

P: Adult patients
I: in extended intensive care within an urban acute care facility
I: increased mobilization of the patients
C: minimal mobilization of the patients
O: early transfers of the patients from intensive care
