AsI read paper 1, the question I ask myself is how the best practices,and the latest research findings be incorporated in the care of thekidney transplant. Paper 1 suggests that John Hopkins model will helpthe kidney transplant patients get encouragement, education, andinclusion into the care so as to meet the emotional needs of thepatients and provision of a better quality of life. The model usessimple tools that allow easy implementation. The model can also beused in answering research questions in education, and in practice(Rod, 2012). In this model, the practice question is defined, theevidence are established then translated into practice (McEwen &ampWills, 2014).

Paper2 does not address how the Iowa model will be used in controlling thehealthcare costs in implementation of music therapy as anintervention in acute pain management. Paper 2 proposes that theIowa’s model should be used in implementing music therapyintervention in acute pain management. In particular, it proposesthat the Iowa’s model should be used for post-operative patients.The model will help identify the problem triggers and knowledge thatinitiate EBP (evidence based practice) (Brown, 2014). Paper 2identifies a practice problem, which is a trigger. The trigger occurswhenever patients experience pain management scores. The Iowa modelwill help classify the project into either a research or an EBP. Themodel also offers a chance and guidance in establishing a trial,disseminating results, and review of results (McEwen &amp Wills,2014). However, the health costs can be managed if the whole caresystem is considered including provide, patient, research, andinfrastructure so as to guide the decisions.

Inpaper 3 the Iowa’s model was used in making the teacher understandhow to manage and prevent allergic reaction (Gupta et al., 2011).However, the paper fails to report how the health costs in practicewill be controlled using the model. The paper only suggests that themodel will help arrange the changes needed to be made by theresearcher in improving and managing food allergy in a schoolsetting. In this case, Iowa model would not only help inidentification of the topic, and retrieve evidence, but alsoestablish the practice, implement it, and evaluate it (Brown, 2014). The health costs can be managed if the whole care system isconsidered so as to guide the decisions (Brown, 2014).
