Before moving on, meet with your mentor/advisor concerning your question. The purpose of this meeting is to ensure that your question and path forward are one that will allow you to be successful. Do not move forward before your mentor/advisor sign off on the meeting sheet.
During this meeting discuss the clinical question you have come up with and how that question links to the unit and/or hospital goals. It would also be a good time to discuss why this is an important question and any potential data sources that can be consulted to determine the impact of any potential intervention.
Also, during this meeting discuss the stakeholders who will be affected by the project and which people on the unit or in the hospital who have been identified as potential team members. It may be useful to get some commitments from some of the potential team members so that you can have their assistance as you gather and evaluate evidence.
