How would you determine whether research literature is appropriate in supporting your nursing practice?
APA FORMAT. 2 REFERENCES, 1.5 PAGES
At the beginning of the course, you explored differences and similarities between research-related terms. In this final week of class, discuss how you’ve come to understand those terms, your role in research and evidence-based processes, and how you plan to apply the knowledge acquired in this course in your clinical practice. You should include the following:
How has your understanding of nursing research, research utilization, evidence-based practice, and your role in these changed since the start of the course?
Do you have a different picture in your mind of how research and evidence-based practice fit together?
How would you determine whether research literature is appropriate in supporting your nursing practice? How confident do you feel in your ability to do this?
There are several strategies, resources, and tools available to help you select appropriate literature to build your evidence-based practice. For example, you should be aware of Journal Clubs, the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), top-tier nursing research journals (e.g., Applied Nursing Research, Western Journal of Nursing Research, etc.), appraisal tools, how to ask a focused clinical question (i.e., PICO), etc. Select a strategy, resource, or tool to explore and describe it. Feel free to select something outside of these examples. Explain how it can help you select the best evidence to support your evidence-based practice.
