DNP Scholarly Projects


In previous bodies of work, researchers have not evaluated clinicians’ treatment of AVRS and ABRS by examining the impact of a national education toolkit and a decision tree tool. It is the intent of this scholarly project to determine whether an educational program based on a national education toolkit plus a decision tree tool offered to health care providers in a Middle Tennessee walk-in clinic, promoted an increase in treatment guideline adherence when diagnosing and treating acute bacterial rhinosinusitis and acute viral rhinosinusitis.
