Research Summary Table

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is for the student to learn to assimilate, analyze, critique, and summarize original research articles. In other words, select a report of a single, original study.

Course Outcomes

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

(CO 2) Formulate and analyze nursing/clinical problems related to nursing and other disciplines. (PO 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

(CO 3) Synthesize for dissemination the research findings from nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11)

Due Date: Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 3

Total Points Possible: 165 Points

Requirements

Through this assignment, the student will

1. Conduct a systematic search of relevant databases to find research-based evidence related to a nursing problem (CO 2);

2. Construct a summary table of four peer-reviewed quantitative single original studies, indicating the purpose, sample, design/level of evidence, findings, and limitations of each (CO 3); and

3. Summarize the findings of the four studies as a whole (CO 3).

Preparing the Table

Conduct a PICO(T) search on the nursing problem related to your practice setting. Select the four most recent peer-reviewed studies that describe original research in a single study (do not select a meta-analysis, systematic review of research, or integrative literature review). Refer to the Types of Articles Found in the Nursing and Health care document in the Course Resource section to make sure that you are using the correct document.

Construct a table summarizing the four most credible and recent studies, using the Research Summary template on the next page (also found in Course Resource Section). Analyze each article and provide the following information in brief format: purpose of the study; type of sample and number of participants; design of the study, along with the level of evidence; findings of the study; and limitations of the study.

Preparing the Summary

Briefly (4-6 pages; not including cover page and reference page(s)) summarize the results of the four studies as a whole. Follow this outline:

I. In a short paragraph, restate your research question and describe your search strategy. (10 points)

II. Analysis of the designs used in the studies presented in your research summary table. (10 points)

III. Where do these studies fall on the Levels of Evidence table? What is the significance of this information?(10 points)

IV. Based on these studies, what are the findings? What is the answer to the research question? How well do the studies answer or fail to answer the question? Provide rationale to support your answer.(10 points)

V. How was each sample selected and how many participants in the studies? Is this number adequate? Why or why not? (10 points)

VI. Overall, what are the limitations of the study, and how can these limitations be overcome in subsequent studies? (10 points)

VII. Based on these findings, is the evidence that you found on your topic strong enough to suggest a change in practice or an idea for practice? Why or why not? Please provide a rationale for your answer.(10 points)

Provide your references, formatted in APA style, after the summary. Include the doi number for each article. Submit a permalink of each article you have chosen for this assignment (directions on how to obtain a permalink are located in the Course Resource section).

Instructions for setting up your paper in APA 6th edition format.

Look at the example document for this assignment. Start your paper as you would other APA 6thedition format professional papers. Copy and paste the table into your APA paper. This should allow your paper to remain in a vertical format. Your paper should be one document.

Critique of Systematic Research Review (SRR)

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to provide students with practice in identifying, reading, and critiquing systematic research reviews related to nursing. A systematic review is defined as “A summary of evidence, typically conducted by an expert or expert panel on a particular topic, that uses a rigorous process (to minimize bias) for identifying, appraising, and synthesizing studies to answer a specific clinical question and draw conclusions about the data gathered (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt,2011, p.582).

Course Outcomes

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to

(CO 3) Synthesize for dissemination the research findings from nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11)

(CO 4) Compare and critique quantitative and qualitative designs and methodologies for research studies. (PO 4, 7, 9, 11)

Due Date: Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 5

Total Points Possible: 175 Points

Requirements:

1. Choose an SRR that pertains to your practice setting. Describe the relevance of the nursing research problem addressed in a SRR to practice. (CO 3, 6)

2. Critique the levels of evidence of the studies used in the SRR, specifically the designs of the studies included. (CO 6)

3. Critique the clarity with which the studies are presented and critiqued. (CO 6)

4. Describe the overall findings of the studies, as summarized in the SRR. (CO 3, 6)

5. Critique the conclusions of the SRR, with implications for your current practice and future research. (CO 3, 6)

6. Utilize the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews to locate a true SRR for this assignment.

7. Paper length should be between 4-6 pages (not including cover page and reference page(s).

Preparing the paper

Consult your faculty member if you are uncertain about whether your article is a true SRR. If it is not, your grade will be affected because you will not be able to address all of the above objectives.

Important: Submit a copy of the permalink for the article that you are critiquing by placing it on your reference page underneath your references. This will help TurnItIn from returning a high similarity percentage on your written work. Remember to keep TurnItIn similarity to 24% or less.
