Evidence-Based Project

In this Assignment, you will identify clinical areas of interest and inquiry and practice searching for research in support of maintaining or changing these practices. You will also analyze this research to compare research methodologies employed.

 

To Prepare:

 

Review the Resources and identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the basis of a clinical inquiry.

Based on the clinical issue of interest and using keywords related to the clinical issue of interest, search at least four different databases in the Walden Library to identify at least four relevant peer-reviewed articles related to your clinical issue of interest.

Review the results of your peer-reviewed research and reflect on the process of using an unfiltered database to search for peer-reviewed research.

Reflect on the types of research methodologies contained in the four relevant peer-reviewed articles you selected.

 

Part 1: An Introduction to Clinical Inquiry

Please answer the following: (In 1 page paper)

1.      Identify and briefly describe your chosen clinical issue of interest. (I chose OPIOID CRISIS)

2.      Describe how you used keywords to search on your chosen clinical issue of interest.

Part 2: Identifying Research Methodologies:

(Note: I will attach the PDF copies of the 4 peer-reviewed articles, the Full citation in APA form that I want to use in this assignment and the Matrix Worksheet template.)

 

After reading each of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected, use the Matrix Worksheet template to analyze the methodologies applied in each of the four peer-reviewed articles. Your analysis should include the following:

 

The full citation of each peer-reviewed article in APA format.

A brief (1-paragraph) statement explaining why you chose this peer-reviewed article and/or how it relates to your clinical issue of interest, including a brief explanation of the ethics of research related to your clinical issue of interest.

A brief (1-2 paragraph) description of the aims of the research of each peer-reviewed article.

A brief (1-2 paragraph) description of the research methodology used. Be sure to identify if the methodology used was qualitative, quantitative, or a mixed-methods approach. Be specific.

A brief (1- to 2-paragraph) description of the strengths of each of the research methodologies used, including reliability and validity of how the methodology was applied in each of the peer-reviewed articles you selected.

 

Please include two of the following references on top of the other resources you may use.
