NURS 502 GENERATING EVIDENCE FOR NURSING PRACTICE CRITICAL APPRAISAL GUIDELINES AND GRADING CRITERIA

Prepare an APA 7 – 10 page (excluding cover page, reference page, appendix(ices) critical appraisal using the following guidelines and criteria:

KEY ELEMENTS/HEADINGS CONTENT POSSIBLE POINTS
Background § Briefly describe the rationale for selecting the clinical problem and how the problem can be improved through research and/or evidence based findings (10) 10
PICOT question

§ Identify the PICOT question – clearly describing the population of interest, intervention, comparison, outcomes and timeframe (5) 5
Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Model § Describe a model of EBP that will be used to investigate the PICOT question (5)
§ Describe how the selected model guided the critical appraisal (5)

10
Search Process § Describe the search process used including:
o databases and websites searched (2)

o all key words used in the search process (2)

o total number and types of literature retrieved (2)

§ Provide rationale for the studies selected for this appraisal (2)

8
Critique of Evidence
(Evaluate the studies you selected then decide which of those to critique based on your PICOT question)

§ Develop a synthesis/evaluation matrix table that concisely and accurately supports evidence for the PICOT question (See Matrix table example).
§ Table must contain a minimum of three articles. Preferable to select primary studies, avoiding systematic reviews (ie. meta-analysis, meta-synthesis) if possible. (submit as an Appendix) (1)

§ Include the following columns in the table (6 points for each article):

§ Study Citation and Level of Evidence (1)

§ Purpose of the study (1)

§ Study method (ie. correlational; cross-sectional; quasi-experimental; longitudinal)

§ Sample (size and general makeup of sample) (1)

§ Measurement tools/Instruments utilized (ie. Attitudes Toward Substance Abuse questionnaire; body mass index (BMI); post-prandial blood glucose (PPBS); International Prevalence Measurement of Care Problems (IPMCP) questionnaire) (1)

§ Statistical analysis methods utilized (ie. ANOVA; paired t-test, Chi-Square) (1)

§ Key findings (1)

§ For each article listed in the table, write two to three paragraphs that includes discussion of (6 points for each article):

§ Primary purpose of study (1)

§ Study method (1)

§ Brief discussion of the sample (1)

§ Key findings contribution to evidence (1)

§ Strengths of study (1)

§ Limitations of study (1)

37
Clinical Integration § After evaluating the significance of the evidence, determine/describe if evidence found is applicable to your PICOT question (3)
§ Identify how the evidence can impact/influence patient care (3)

§ Determine and discuss whether further research about the topic is warranted or whether an evidence based change in clinical practice is warranted (4)

10
Plans for Proposal § Provide an overview of your proposal plan to examine PICOT question (10) 10
Style
(this is not a heading but APA format and writing style must be followed)

§ Paper uses APA writing style, which includes grammatically correct language and spelling, economy of expression, precision, clarity (3)
§ Use required headings in the order indicated (3)

§ Cover page (2)

§ Reference page(s) (2)
