Week 3 Assignment

Clinical Problem and Literature Search Plan

Assignment Content

Evidence-based practice requires the knowledge and ability to accurately read, interpret, and evaluate the strength and evidence of research reports. The first item of business your EBP Committee is tasked with is to select a clinical problem of interest and to complete a literature search plan on the identified problem. Each week, you will continue building your EBP project due in Week 8.

Meet as a committee, keeping in mind the virtual meeting space available through Collaborate. If using Collaborate and members cannot meet, record meetings and post them so members can review and provide their contribution.

Outlined below are 4 steps to prepare your committee for completing the Literature Search Plan due this week.

Step 1: Select a Clinical Problem of Interest

Identify a clinical problem of interest.

Conduct an initial search for available literature to establish the significance of the problem. Use primary sources for statistics to establish the problem’s significance (i.e., a CDC report rather than a source citing the CDC).

Create a problem statement using the information from your initial review of literature. Utilize the following resources to develop your problem statement:

Review pp. 144-147 of Nursing Research for guidance on developing the problem statement.

Ensure that your problem statement reads like the one in Box 4.2 located on p. 135 of Nursing Research, including citations for any statements of fact.

Review “Examples of Problem Statements” on pp. 150-157 of Nursing Research.

Step 2: Develop Research Questions

Develop 1 to 3 research (PICO) questions and conduct an initial search for available literature that helps establish the significance of the problem.

Utilize the following sections from Nursing Research to assist you in developing your questions and your plan for your literature search:

“Asking Well-Worded Clinical Questions,” pp. 77-81

Table 2.1: “Question Templates for Selected Clinical Foreground Questions – PIO and PICO,” p. 80

Chapter 5: “Literature Reviews – Finding and Critiquing Evidence”

Step 3: Develop a Literature Search Plan

Resource: Literature Search Plan

Develop a literature search plan for your clinical problem.

Step 4: Summary

Write a 525-word summary describing your plan (Steps 1-3). Include the problem statement and the research questions that are being used to guide the literature search.

Provide references for all sources cited.

Format your assignment according to APA guidelines, including title and reference pages.

Great work! Your EBP Committee is ready for the next task, completing a quantitative study literature search. Your work is important, your EBP research is valuable and essential to making innovative changes to clinical practice.

Meet as a committee, keeping in mind the virtual meeting space available through Collaborate. If using Collaborate and members cannot meet, record meetings and post them so members can review and provide their contribution.

As a committee, complete the following:

Conduct a literature search for quantitative academic research studies based on your clinical problem utilizing the search plan submitted in Week 3. You may revise the plan as you conduct the search.

Locate a minimum of 1 quantitative academic research study for each individual on the committee. Each member should read all the articles selected. Ensure that the selection of final articles reflects a group process rather than simply each team member selecting an article and submitting.

DO NOT UTILIZE A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW, LITERATURE REVIEW, CONTENT ANALYSIS, OR META-ANALYSIS THIS WEEK. If you are unsure about whether an article is appropriate, please send it to me via Private Message to review.

Use the Literature Search Activities in Bibliographic Databases Log to document your search process. You will add to the form in future weeks as you continue the search.

Write a 300-word summary of your search process and explain why the committee chose the selected articles focusing on the methods, results, and significance of the studies’ findings.

Provide references for all sources cited.

Week 7 Assignment

Qualitative – Recording Key Methodologic Features

Assignment Content

Though the ability to read and accurately interpret and evaluate research reports is a needed skill for evidence-based practice, the strength of evidence needed for changing practice requires systematic reviews of literature. This week’s assignment is intended to help your committee develop skills to summarize and synthesize findings from qualitative studies. Synthesis is preferred but is only possible if the methods and findings are consistent from study to study.

Meet as a committee, keeping in mind the virtual meeting space available through Collaborate. If using Collaborate and members cannot meet, record meetings and post them so members can review and provide their contribution.

As a committee, complete the following:

Utilize the articles from the qualitative literature search from your Week 6 assignment as the basis for this assignment.

Update the Evaluation Matrix for Recording Findings, Strengths, and Weaknesses of Studies and the Methodologic Matrix for Recording Key Methodologic Features of Studies for a Literature Review worksheets to summarize key elements of each qualitative study with emphasis on findings. Note that for these qualitative studies, there will NOT be independent and dependent variables.

Write a 350- to 500-word addition to the synthesis of the key information from the qualitative articles. You will be adding to the synthesis completed in Week 5; clearly identify the qualitative section in your existing synthesis using subheadings.

Add references to the existing reference page in the report.
