Week 4Evidence Synthesis

Assignment

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to develop a synthesis of evidence using three quantitative research study articles and three non-research evidence sources. The development of the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool builds a body of research study evidence about a practice problem and evidence-based intervention for implementation in a practice change project. Continually adding research studies to the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool builds the foundation for the synthesis of research study evidence for a practice change.

Please note that this is the first part of a 2-part assignment. You will receive feedback from your course faculty on this assignment and will be required to use the feedback to revise this paper. In Week 6, you will add to this paper and submit as the Week 6 Assignment.

Instructions

Follow these guidelines when completing the assignment. Contact your course faculty if you have any questions.

  1. Review the directions for completing each column of the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (located in the Week 2 lesson).
  2. Use the two quantitative research studies from NR715 that are already on your expanding Johns Hopkins Individual Summary Tool. Add the quantitative research study appraised in Week 1 of this course to your Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool.
    1. All articles must be recent research study articles less than 5 years old, be related to your selected National Practice Problem, and include an evidence-based intervention.
    2. If any of your quantitative research studies do not meet these requirements, you need to find replacement quantitative research studies and update the Johns Hopkins Evidence Summary Tool after you appraise, level the evidence, and grade the quality of the replacement study.
  3. Locate three non-research evidence sources to support the articulation of the practice problem.
  4. Use the most current version of Microsoft Word that is the format for all Chamberlain University College of Nursing. You can tell the document is saved as the current version because it will end in “docx.”
  5. All Chamberlain University policies related to plagiarism must be observed.
  6. Review the rubric for the grading criteria.

The assignment includes the following components:

  1. Introduction
    1. Write a one-sentence purpose statement.
    2. Introduce the practice problem. (Cited)
    3. Introduce the evidence-based intervention using research study evidence. (Cited)
  2. Analysis of the Practice Problem (1-2 paragraphs): Using research study evidence and non-research evidence, present the following at the national and local levels (cited):
    1. Significance
    2. Prevalence
    3. Mortality
    4. Economic ramifications of the practice problem
  3. Evidence Synthesis: Using a minimum of three quantitative research study articles and a minimum of three non-research study evidence sources, write a synthesis of evidence to include the following:
    1. Identify the main themes and salient points that emerge from the sources. (Cited)
    2. Compare and contrast the main points from all evidence sources. (Cited)
    3. Present an objective overarching synthesis of research evidence about the practice problem. (Cited)
  4. Conclusion
    1. Write one concise paragraph, providing a clear and logical summation of the paper.
  5. References
    1. Include a list of all references in APA format
  6. Appendix A: Attach the completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool as Appendix A. Complete all sections of the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool for each research study. Include the following:
    1. A minimum of three quantitative research studies
    2. Complete all sections completely and identify the quality and the levels of evidence.

Writing Requirements (APA format)

  • Length: 4-6 pages (not including title page, reference page, or appendix)
  • 1-inch margins
