Total Points Possible: 165 Points
Through this assignment, the student will
1. Conduct a systematic search of relevant databases to find research-based evidence related to a nursing problem (CO 2);
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 (CO 3); and
3. Summarize the findings of the four studies as a whole (CO 3).
Preparing the Table
Conduct a PICO(T) search on the nursing problem related to your practice setting.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). Refer to the Types of Articles Found in the Nursing and
Healthcaredocument in the Course Resource section to make sure that you are using the correct document.
Construct a table summarizing the four most credible and recent studies, using the Research Summary template on the next page (also found in Course Resource
Section). 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.
Preparing the Summary
Briefly (4-6 pages; not including cover page and reference page(s)) 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. Analysis of the designs used in the studies presented in your research summary table. (10 points)
III. Where do these studies fall on the LevelsofEvidence table? What is the significance of this information?(10 points)
IV. Based on these studies, what are the findings? What is the answer to the research question?How well do the studies answer or fail to answer the question? Provide
rationale to support your answer.(10 points)
V. Howwas eachsample selected and how many participants in the studies. Is this number adequate? Why or why not? (10 points)
VI. Overall, what are the limitations of the study, and how can these limitations be overcome in subsequent studies? (10 points)
