Guidelines with Scoring Rubric
Through this assignment,
1. Conduct a systematic search of relevant databases to find research-based evidence related to a nursing problem
2. Construct a summary table of four peer-reviewedquantitative single original studies, indicating the purpose, sample, design/level of evidence, findings, and limitations of each
3. Summarize the findings of the four studies as a whole
4. REFERENCES: Books or textbooks cannot be used since they are not peer-reviewed. Please use articles not older than 5 years (2011-2016). Thanks
Preparing the Table
Conduct a Quantitative research question using the PICO(T) modelon the following nursing problem: NURSE-PATIENT RATIO
I: Intervention/abstract content
Select the four most recent peer-reviewed studies that describe original research in a single study (DO NOT select a meta-analysis, systematic review of research, or integrative literature review).
Construct a table summarizing the four most credible and recent studies, using the Research Summary template (FOUND BELLOW). Analyze each article and provide the following information in brief format: purpose of the study; type of sample and number of participants; design of the study, along with the level of evidence; findings of the study; and limitations of the study.
Briefly (4-6 pages) summarize the results of the four studies as a whole. Follow this outline:
I. In a short paragraph, restate your research question and describe your search strategy. (10 points)
II. Describe the designs used in the studies that you are providing. Where do these studies fall on the Levelsof Evidence table? (20 points)
III. Based on these studies, what are the findings? What is the answer to the research question? Do the studies fail to answer the question, and if so, why not? (10 points)
IV. Comment on how the sample was selected and on the number of participants. Are they adequate? Why or why not? (10 points)
V. Overall, what are the limitations of the study, and how can these limitations be overcome in subsequent studies? (10 points)
VI. Based on these findings, is the evidence that you found on your topic strong enough to suggest a change in practice or an idea for practice? Please provide a rationale for your answer. (10 points)
? ATTACHED you will find a sample paper showing exactly what I need for this order. Please use it as a guideline and follow the instructions for this assignment. Feel free to contact me if any question arises. Thanks
Provide your references, formatted in APA style, after the summary. Include the DOI number for each article. Submit a pdf of each article you have chosen for this assignment.
