Nursing Assignments

Research (graded) Give a brief definition of nursing research and evidenced-based research. Explain differences and similarities. Remember to use references. w Role of Research (graded) Why should nurses incorporate research? What trends have created a push for nursing practice based on evidence? Remember to use references. week 2 Describe a Significant Clinical Issue (graded) Reflect on your practice and identify a significant clinical issue that you would like to search for evidence in online sources. This issue will be the basis for the Research Database Assignment that you will submit Week 4. Describe what makes your issue significant, for example, the seriousness, the number of people affected, the gaps in knowledge, and so forth. Remember to integrate references. Formulate Searchable Clinical Questions (graded) Read the assigned case study and formulate searchable, clinical questions in the PICO(T) format. There are several potential questions that could be asked. Identify if the focus of your question is assessment, etiology, treatment, or prognosis. Remember to integrate references. week 3 Research Problems and Designs (graded) Using your Significant Clinical Issue from Week 2, describe the knowledge gap that research could fill. Identify the PICO(T) elements that might be found in a research question related to the problem. Share a Research Database Description (graded) Review the guidelines, grading rubric, and brief video (link found in guidelines) that explain the Research Database Assignment due in Week 4. Search for one research database that is relevant to this assignment, and briefly describe the issue you are investigating, the name of the research database, and where it may be found, that is, the URL. USE THE FORM IN THE ASSIGNMENT GUIDELINES Briefly describe your process for locating databases that contain relevant research studies. Did you have any difficulties or face any challenges? week 4 Sampling (graded) The most common sampling method is the convenience sample; therefore, many of the studies that you find for evidence use this sampling method. What are the implications for using a convenience sample on the way you interpret and use the findings? Ethical and Legal Issues (graded) Read one of the case studies from Your Genes, Your Choices: Exploring the Issues Raised by Genetics Research (a PDF of this may be downloaded from Doc Sharing). Consider the legal and ethical issues that may occur as the result of genetics research. Identify the name of the case and explain something new that you learned about ethical and legal issues regarding research by completing this statement, “I didn’t know _____.” The legal/ethical dilemmas discussed in these cases are timeless, but the details of the case studies may be dated. If you would prefer, you may discuss a legal/ethical issue issue you have faced at your facility instead of analyzing a case. week 5 Measurement Strategies (graded) Describe what reliability means in terms of research and why it is important. How does a researcher ensure that reliability is maintained in instruments and between raters? Data Collection (graded) Download the Class Survey from Doc Sharing and answer the questions. You are not to submit your answers, nor is the survey graded. This experience is to provide you with insight into being a human subject. What was your impression of this data collection tool and the type of questions it asked? week 6 Applying Evidence From Research Reports (graded) Consider a policy or procedure at your facility that you believe may be not following best practices. Search for at least two research reports (preferably systematic reviews) that address the policy or procedure. Cite your sources. After reading the results sections of the reports, would you recommend to keep or change your current policy or procedure? Defend your decision based on the strength of the evidence. Analyzing Results (graded) Earlier in the course you were asked to complete the Class Survey. The results are in! Findings from students who have taken NR439 can be found in Doc Sharing. Review these and describe what the results say about this sample of students. week 7 Applying Evidence to Practice (graded) How does a nurse know what (if any) knowledge in a research study is useable for clinical practice? What would a critical thinker look for in the evidence before deciding to change? What influence do credibility and significance have on your decisions to integrate research-based evidence into your practice? Sharing Evidence (graded) Discuss the research databases that you discovered related to the clinical issue that you chose for the Research Databases Assignment. Summarize the evidence you found in your Research Database Assignment. Explain how you would share this with your clinical practice area. ASSIGNMENTS Research Database Assignment – Week 4 Guidelines and Grading Rubric Purpose You are to locate and document research databases that relate to a significant clinical nursing issue of your choice. The research databases may be labeled as such, or may be collections of research studies, reports, articles and/or findings that are not specifically called databases. Please note: Individual journals and journal articles do not meet the criteria for a research database, and therefore, do not qualify for this assignment. Course Outcomes This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcome: CO 1: Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO #7) Due Date: You are to identify a total of five research databases (or collections of research-based evidence) that are relevant to a significant clinical nursing issue that is important to you. Submit the descriptions using the form provided in Doc Sharing to the Week 4 Dropboxby11:59 p.m. Sunday (MT). Points The assignment is worth a total of 175 points. Please see the grading rubric for details. Requirements 1. Choose a topic of interest to you that is a significant clinical nursing issue. Please note that the databases you identify could be useful sources of information for your Capstone project in NR451, so choose your topic thoughtfully. 2. Download the NR439_Research_Database_Form from Doc Sharing and type information about each database directly onto the form. Your paper does NOT need to follow APA formatting; however, you are expected to use correct grammar, spelling, syntax, and write in complete sentences. 3. Save the file by clicking Save as and adding your last name, e.g., NR439_Research Database_Smith.docx. 4. Watch the video that describes this assignment by opening this link:.brainshark.com/devry/vu?pi=zHpzpHehxzHr05z0&intk=45814200″>http://www.brainshark.com/devry/vu?pi=zHpzpHehxzHr05z0&intk=45814200 5. Describe your topic of interest. This is worth 15 points. 6. Locate a total of five research databases or collections related to your topic. Each research database description is worth 30 points. You may search for these in various locations, e.g., the Internet, an intranet at work, print publications, etc. You may NOT choose the databases that are already familiar to you – MEDLINE, PUBMED (which also indexes MEDLINE), GOOGLE SCHOLAR, and CINAHL. Instead, you are expected to expand your knowledge of evidence-based sources. Places to help you begin include your textbook, which lists databases and websites that report research. The Chamberlain online library (.chamberlain.edu/”>http://library.chamberlain.edu) gives you access to several databases and provide tutorials for searching. Government sites such as those at the National Institutes of Health offer collections of research on a variety of subjects. The key to choosing the databases is that each contains research-based evidence that also pertains to your topic of interest. 7. Review each database or collection to gather information to create a description for the assignment. Each description must: a. identify the title of the research database; b. describe the location of the research database in a way that a reader could find it. This could be a URL or an APA citation; c. name owner or publisher of the source; d. describe the research database. This must be in your own words and not copied and pasted from the original source. Include the purpose of the database and the subject matter it covers. This may be four or five sentences; and e. explain how the research found in the database relates to your topic of interest. This may be an additional paragraph, perhaps two or three sentences. 8. Submit to the Research Database basket in the Dropbox by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday at the end of Week 4. Please post question about this paper in the Q & A Forum. Example The following is an example of a description for JBI: Title of source:Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery Location of source (URL):.joannabriggs.edu.au/”>www.joannabriggs.edu.au Owner or publisher:Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery (JBI) Describe (in your own words) the research database or collection of research including the purpose and the subject matter it covers: The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international not-for-profit Research and Development Organization that provides evidence-based resources for healthcare professionals in nursing, midwifery, medicine, and allied health. Those with membershipare able to obtain evidence-based practice information from systemic reviews, evaluation reports, electronic journals, best-practice information, and consumer healthcare information. Explain how the source relates to your topic of interest: JBI is relevant to my topic of interest because it provides reports, systemic reviews, journal Articles, and best-practice information on current issues in healthcare. Hospital readmissions are a major issue in healthcare. The database had several resources addressing the problem of hospital readmissions and identifying strategies for improvement.
