Nursing homework help

This  assignment will require you to take the PICO, 5 research articles and place them in a table for analysis.  You will critique each article and identify the most important parts of the research, analysis, and findings.

Then  you will summarize the articles by grading the research, and identifying gaps in the literature as well as possible interventions (see grading rubric and examples).


1. Identify your PICO or research question of interest

2. Gather 5 research articles on your topic: be sure to save them and submit them along with the matrix;  please make sure they are PDF documents.

3. Do not use clinical guidelines or Cochran Reviews, abstracts, future research reports or  poster presentations.  You can search for research only by indicating “research” when you do an advanced search.  If you can’t answer a lot of the questions, it is probably not a research article.

4. We do not recommend that you use more than one  qualitative research article or systematic review or meta analysis.  These are harder to evaluate because they have so much more information in them.  Remember it is not individuals in these studies- it is the articles.  Use the reference list in the systematic reviews or meta analyses to find individual studies that may be easier to understand and use.

5. Review sample matrices and summaries ATTACHED

6. Use matrix table- one for each article and critique the parts of the article using the rubric-(RUBRIC IS ATTACHED)

7.  Be sure to identify the evaluation tool used to grade the evidence such as (See below for grading the evidence tools)

8. Identify where there are issues with the articles and what gaps were not addressed with the research; be prepared this may change the way you look at your topic or may result in a slightly different direction for your area of interest. This is ok- that is what you want to accomplish with this assignment. It will really assist you as you move forward with your project.

9. For this assignment you will turn in the matrix tables, summary, references and pdf copies of your 5 articles.

10. Key definitions:

1. Level of evidence:  the process used to evaluate the level of evidence of your articles- such as Jones Hopkins,  Cincinnati Children’s evaluation etc,

2. Evaluation tool: use the method and describe how you arrived at the scoring or knowing that the article included all content it needed to- such as CASP;

3. Instrument: What type of instrument or tool was used in the article?  This could be  a depression screening tool, Nurse satisfaction tool etc.  Describe the instrument- how many questions, reliability- consistency with test-retest, Cronbach Alpha, inter-rater reliablity; validity with content validity, face validity
