The Collaborative Learning Community: EBP Identification of Clinical Question assignment is due.
Prepare for your upcoming Topic 5 assignment, Collaborative Learning Community: EBP Literature Search/Appraisal of Evidence. Remember to record all communication in the CLC Forum.
Use the evidence hierarchy pyramid provided in Figure 2.1 in the Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice textbook as a guide for the levels of evidence in your reference list.
Locate case studies, relevant clinical articles written by experts, research articles, evidence-based guidelines, protocols, and theories that may guide the identification of appropriate solutions. This can include the articles reviewed in Topic 3. Note: Not all theories will have research that allows them to have a level assigned to them. This does not mean they are not good theories. A true proposal would require a comprehensive review of the literature and inclusion of all relevant works.
Appraise the evidence using the guidelines provided in the Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice textbook. Use these guidelines to discard references that are untrustworthy or irrelevant. Box 2.2 can help with this decision-making process. Chapter 5 provides guidance on how to synthesize the article findings.
