Provide a summary of your ideas that you may present: (Be sure to offer any additional details about your selected option below for your professor’s review. You can always change the details, as the summary should provide an overview of your ideas, so the professor can understand your approach and offer any recommendations or support.)

I plan to use the Hispanic culture to address the cultural competence project at the memorial hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, to address the risk factors and complications of type 2 diabetes among the Hispanic elderly population. I will use the diabetes self-management education and support approach to help the targeted population with diabetes learn how to take the best care of themselves. I will include the Hispanic cultural competence to create awareness of type 2 diabetes among the elderly population as they are the most target population for diabetes. I will need to research more to use diabetes self-management education and support approach to change the target population’s lifestyle to live a healthier lifestyle. Moreover, I intend to incorporate best cultural practices to encourage the best self-management of diabetes among the hospitalized patient.

Post-test score































b) Run descriptive statistics on the data

c) Run a frequency distribution on the data

d) Create a graph of posttest scores

  1. Complete the SPSS Assignment Table below




1. What was your mean?

2. What were your t-test results?

3. What was your standard deviation?

 project:    In alert and oriented adult patients on a medical surgical unit, does engagement of patients using a scripted tool during bedside handoff at each shift change compared to no patient engagement in nursing handoff increase HCAHPS scores and positive patient feedback in leadership rounding after a three-month period?

    Poster Presentation

    Students this project will allow you to formulate and hypothetically develop your own research project. The purpose of this project is for the student to follow all of the different steps in a research project on an already published article and presented as a poster presentation. A poster session or poster presentation is the presentation of research information by an individual or representatives of research teams at a congress or conference with an academic or professional focus. The work is usually peer reviewed. Poster sessions are particularly prominent at scientific conferences such as medical congresses. 

    Students will select the same article from week 7 and create a poster presentation that include the below information: I upload a template for the poster
