NSG 6999 Graduate Project in Nursing

Week 1 discussion

To complete this week, after reading chapter one in Melnyk and reviewing the lectures you need to consider the topic of interest to you. List a ONE to two-word topic that you want to explore further and why you are interested in this topic. This topic encompasses the question that you have been generating throughout your program. NSG 6999 Graduate Project in Nursing.

As an example I may choose the topic of depression, as I am interested in all of the depression I am seeing in the primary care office. Next week I will explore the background of this topic and this will lead to my PICOT question.

Week 5 discussion

We will be reviewing a “keeper study” this week—evaluate an article by working through the following 7 question

Again, keeper studies can be identified using handy Rapid Critical Appraisal checklists consisting of a set of simple but important questions. Below are sample questions developed for use with quantitative studies that are applicable to most appraisal situations (it’s important to note that qualitative evidence, if it’s relevant to the clinical question, should not be dismissed):

Why was the study done? Make sure the study is directly relevant to the clinical question.

What is the sample size? Size can and should vary according to the nature of the study. Since determining a valid minimum sample size in a single study can be difficult, taking into account multiple studies is beneficial.

The answer to this question alone should not remove a study from the appraisal process.

Are instruments of the variables in the study clearly defined and reliable? Make sure the variables were consistently applied throughout the study and that they measured what the researchers said they were going to measure. NSG 6999 Graduate Project in Nursing.

How was the data analyzed?

Make sure that any statistics are relevant to the clinical question.

Were there any unusual events during the study? If the sample size changed, for example, determine whether that has ramifications if you wish to replicate the study.

How do the results fit in with previous research in this area? Make sure the study builds on other studies of a similar nature.

What are the implications of the research for clinical practice? Ask whether the study addresses a relevant and important clinical issue. NSG 6999 Graduate Project in Nursing.
