Qualifying Statement

These guidelines were developed by the author as a master’s student project for NURS 7000 Theoretical Foundations for Nursing Practice. They were designed to provide nurses with proposed clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for the clinical application of this middle range theory based on the best available evidence at the time these were written. They were not developed by an expert panel. This document is not intended to impose a standard of care that prevents a variance in a specific situation. They are proposed guidelines that should only be used according to the nurse’s judgment of their usefulness with each individual patient and situation.

1American Association of Critical Care Nurses’ (2011). Evidence Leveling System
A Meta-analysis of multiple controlled studies or meta-synthesis of qualitative studies with results that consistently support a specific action, intervention or treatment
B Well designed controlled studies, both randomized and nonrandomized, with results that consistently support a specific action, intervention, or treatment.
C Qualitative studies, descriptive or correlational studies, integrative reviews, systematic reviews, or randomized controlled trials with inconsistent results.
D Peer-reviewed professional standards, with clinical studies to support recommendations.
E Theory-based evidence from expert opinion or multiple case reports.
M Manufacturer’s recommendation

Benefits/Harms of Implementing the Guideline Recommendations

Potential Benefits

 

Potential Harms

 

Strength of Recommendation Rating Scale
A (High) Recommendation Meta-analysis of high quality well-controlled studies or of qualitative studies that consistently support action, intervention, or treatment; relevant to practice
B (Moderate) Recommendation High quality evidence with minor differences in findings; Based on Level B, C, or D evidence: relevant to practice
C (Weak) Recommendation Limited or low quality evidence; based on consensus of usual practice.
NR Not Recommended Unable to recommend based on current evidence; weak evidence or heterogeneity of findings;
Assessments Assess all women admitted to Labor and Delivery for risk factors (single, minimal support system, hx of depression) for PPD (Smith, 2020 [A]; Jones, 2025 [B]) The [A] or [B] after the author, year is the weight of that evidence from your evidence table.

QUICK START

 

Zoom in and out

As you work on your poster zoom in and out to the level that is more comfortable to you. Go to VIEW > ZOOM.

 

Title, Authors, and Affiliations

Start designing your poster by adding the title, the names of the authors, and the affiliated institutions. You can type or paste text into the provided boxes. The template will automatically adjust the size of your text to fit the title box. You can manually override this feature and change the size of your text.

 

TIP: The font size of your title should be bigger than your name(s) and institution name(s).

 

 

 

Adding Logos / Seals

Most often, logos are added on each side of the title. You can insert a logo by dragging and dropping it from your desktop, copy and paste or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Logos taken from web sites are likely to be low quality when printed. Zoom it at 100% to see what the logo will look like on the final poster and make any necessary adjustments.

 

TIP: See if your company’s logo is available on our free poster templates page.

 

Photographs / Graphics

You can add images by dragging and dropping from your desktop, copy and paste, or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Resize images proportionally by holding down the SHIFT key and dragging one of the corner handles. For a professional-looking poster, do not distort your images by enlarging them disproportionally.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Image Quality Check

Zoom in and look at your images at 100% magnification. If they look good they will print well.
