Evidence based research and applied nursing research

Evidence based research and applied nursing research
Introduction:NursingĀ  and healthcare are based on evidence, which means that we use evidence to create or look at how care is given (Schmidt & Brown, 2011). Nursing also depends on clear communication, scholarly research, and writing to share information (Garrard, 2007). In this project, you will write a review of the literature on a topic in nursing or health care of your choice.

Your topic should have something to do with your clinical knowledge, your thoughts on how nursing works, or your worries about healthcare. Your topic should be an important problem in the field of nursing.

In your essay, you will present your literature review using two of the most common tools of evidence-based practice (EBP): a matrix to summarize the structure of the primary/original research you found and an annotated bibliography to summarize the results of each piece of research. You can find a resource for learning how to use research matrices in the text by Garrard (2007), which is part of your course of study.

Also, EBP skills are often needed in career ladders or job applications as part of professional nursing practice. Your review of the literature should show how smart you are and how well you can use evidence to support changing or improving practice. Think about how your peers would judge your EBP skills and scholarship if they saw your research and learned the latest facts about your topic. You could also think about how people who are interviewing you for new jobs would judge your EBP skills and scholarship.

Evidence based research and applied nursing research Requirements:

Do the following to write a literature review on the subject you’ve chosen:

A. Talk about the topic you are researching and why it is important to nursing.

Note: You can cite parts of the primary research you find in part D to back up your discussion.

B. Write a statement of the problem, explaining why you need to do a literature review on your topic.

C. Evaluate five resources or databases that you might use for your primary research, including a review of their usefulness and credibility for your chosen topic.

D. Find ten pieces of original research on your topic that have to do with nursing care or processes.

1. Fill out the “Evidence-Based Practice Matrix” for your ten most important and reliable sources of research.

Note: Credible sources are less than five years old and include professional journals, research reports, professional Web sites, government reports, current texts that are less than five years old, and presentations from professional meetings.

Note that in APA format, text that is put into tables or matrices should be written in phrases and not full sentences.

2. Make an annotated bibliography for each piece of research in your matrix.

Note: See some examples of annotated bibliographies in the section with web links below.

E. Talk about the results of your original search strategy, including the resources, databases, and keywords you used.

1. Talk about how you changed your search strategy or how you could have changed it to get better search results.

F. Summarize the main points of the research you did, grouping similar pieces of evidence together by topic to show what your literature is about.

1. Compare results that are similar and different.

G. Suggest a best practice in nursing for the subject you chose.

1. Use your review of the literature to back up your recommendation.

H. Based on your literature review, talk about any gaps in what you know about your topic.

I. Think about how you, as a nursing leader, can make the workplace a place where evidence-based practice and asking questions are valued.

J. When you use sources, make sure to use APA format for all in-text citations and references.

Note: The Rubric Terms link in the Evaluation Procedures section can help you figure out what some of the terms in the rubric mean.

Note: If you use sources to back up ideas and parts of a paper or project, you MUST include APA-style in-text citations and a reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrases. There is no need to list the sources that were used if they were not quoted or paraphrased in the paper or project.

Note: Only 30% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from outside sources, even if they are properly cited. Please look at the APA Handout link in the APA Guidelines section for tips on how to use APA style.

List of references:

Note: This list of references is only for direct citations in the project above. The references you need to finish the project may be different from those on this list. Check your Course of Study for a list of learning tools that are suggested.
