08 Oct Evidence-based practice (EBP) This week’s discus
Evidence-based practice (EBP) This week’s discussion forum addresses the first two steps of the evidence-based process. According to Melnyk and Fineout-Overholt (2011), those steps are to develop a “spirit of inquiry” and to ask the “burning clinical question” (or an education, administrative, or public policy question) (p. 11). All of the readings and assignments in this course prepare you for and culminate in an EBP proposal which is due in week 8. This week we will start with step 2 of EBP. What is your burning clinical question? You are to identify a research topic that interests you and that will be the focus of your EBP proposal. This will require a great deal of thought and reflection so choose your topic wisely. Consult with your employer, classmates, work colleagues and instructor for help with the identification of a problem. See learning content folder in week 1 to view topics that other students from previous courses have chosen to get some ideas In addition to choosing your research topic, you learn the difference between qualitative and quantitative research, and how to formulate research questions. You will be choosing articles to read and critique on this topic throughout the course. Students are strongly urged to use articles to critique that is relevant to your topic of interest. These articles ultimately can be used for your final literature review which is part of the proposal. Assignment Guidelines: Complete Assignment Readings and Review the PP titled How to Write a Research Proposal Pick and list your topic of interest for your EBP proposal Choose a nursing article (current within 5 years) that is relevant to the topic you have chosen in step 2 and answer each one of the following questions -Is this a quantitative or qualitative research article? -What are the problem and purpose of the research article? -What are the hypotheses or research questions/objectives of the study? Now that you have reviewed the nursing research article please formulate your own research question or problem statement for the final evidence-based proposal paper using the PICOT format (posted below and found in Melnyk and Fineout-Overholt text) Post your PICOT question or statement to the discussion forum Respond to two or more of your peer’s posts using the discussion grading rubric to guide your responses.
