Section & Faculty Name:

Date of Capstone Review:

The capstone project is a culmination of the learning experiences of baccalaureate students enrolled in the nursing program at Grand Canyon University. The capstone project is guided by baccalaureate essentials competencies identified by AACN as well as clinical competencies defined by CCNE. The learning activities and corresponding assignments in this course require students to collaborate with health care leaders, fellow colleagues and the local community to address a clinical practice problem, organizational issue or educational need. The professional capstone project must reflect synthesis and integration of concepts related to professional practice.

The student has prepared a written proposal for a project whose focus is the resolution of an issue or problem significant to professional nursing practice. The proposal includes a problem description, resolution, implementation plans, evaluation plans, and proposed dissemination of findings.

Thank you for agreeing to review the proposal and offer constructive feedback.

Significance of Early Assessment and Intervention on the Severity of Alcohol Withdrawal

Significance of Early Assessment 1

Abstract

Based on documented studies, the prevalence of alcohol dependence in medical settings indicates that as many as 1 in 5 patients may require treatment for alcohol withdrawal (AW) while hospitalized for a concurrent illness. Research has indicated a definitive problem in recognizing and treating those patients at risk for AW. Symptom-triggered treatment, based on the use of appropriate assessment tools and treatment protocols, has been shown to be safe, and it is associated with a decrease in the quantity of medication required and the duration of treatment. Implementing standardized screening tools and initiating treatment based on established protocols, can prevent disease progression and an increased complication rate. These interventions can potentially decrease length of stay and health care costs.
