Assignment: Evidence Synthesis and Tables

Assignment: Evidence Synthesis and Tables

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to document sources of research evidence that support the evidence-based intervention for the selected practice problem, including the level and quality of each source of research evidence. A synthesis of the evidence is conducted to determine the overall strength and quality of the evidence. The development of an evidence table and synthesis are foundational to inform actions and decisions to improve healthcare outcomes. Construction of an evidence table and synthesis supports the professional formation of the DNP-prepared nurse.

Course Outcomes. This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcome: CO 3: Develop strategies to lead project planning, implementation, management, and evaluation to promote high-value healthcare. (POs 3, 5, 7)

Instructions: Download the Johns Hopkins Research Evidence Appraisal Tool (Links to an external site.) and the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool (Links to an external site.) located in the Student Resource Center under “Project & Practicum Resources.”

As you incorporate published research study findings into your own writing, you aim for synthesis of the material. Before learning how to write a synthesis, it is important to define this term. At its most basic level, a synthesis involves combining two or more summaries. Synthesis writing is more difficult than it might first appear because this combining must be done in a meaningful way. A synthesis requires critical reading and thinking in order to compare different material, highlighting similarities, differences, and connections. When practicing scholar synthesizes successfully, they present new ideas based on interpretations of published research evidence. Conceptually, it can be helpful to think about synthesis existing at both the local (or paragraph) level and the global (or paper) level. Synthesis is all about collecting information from different sources and putting it together as one content.

*****[Florida has a high STD prevalence of sexually transmitted illnesses, and Miami Dade County is one of the most affected by this problem. I’m collaborating with a Miami-Dade County community-based clinic, bringing awareness to the community about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and offering testing along with that awareness. The organization’s mission is to provide patients with quality and affordable care to allow the community to have a safer, more enjoyable life. The clinic’s vision is to create awareness in the community about the risk of having unprotected sex and the need to stop STDs transmission. I want to explore the effect of education interventions for the prevention and treatment of STDs in young adults.]****
