NURS 502 GENERATING EVIDENCE FOR NURSING PRACTICE CRITICAL APPRAISAL GUIDELINES AND GRADING CRITERIA
Prepare an APA 7 – 10 page (excluding cover page, reference page, appendix(ices) critical appraisal using the following guidelines and criteria:

KEY ELEMENTS/HEADINGS
CONTENT
POSSIBLE POINTS

Background
§  Briefly describe the rationale for selecting the clinical problem and how the problem can be improved through research and/or evidence based findings (10)
10

PICOT question
 
§  Identify the PICOT question – clearly describing the population of interest, intervention, comparison, outcomes and timeframe (5)
5

Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Model
§  Describe a model of EBP that will be used to investigate the PICOT question (5)
§  Describe how the selected model guided the critical appraisal (5)
10

Search Process
§  Describe the search process used including:
o   databases and websites searched (2)
o   all key words used in the search process (2)
o   total number and types of literature retrieved (2)
§  Provide rationale for the studies selected for this appraisal (2)
8

Critique of Evidence
(Evaluate the studies you selected then decide which of those to critique based on your PICOT question)
§  Develop a synthesis/evaluation matrix table that concisely and accurately supports evidence for the PICOT question (See Matrix table example).
§  Table must contain a minimum of three articles. Preferable to select primary studies, avoiding systematic reviews (ie. meta-analysis, meta-synthesis) if possible. (submit as an Appendix) (1)
§  Include the following columns in the table (6 points for each article):
§  Study Citation and Level of Evidence  (1)
§  Purpose of the study (1)
§  Study method (ie. correlational; cross-sectional; quasi-experimental; longitudinal)
§  Sample (size and general makeup of sample) (1)

§  Statistical analysis methods utilized (ie. ANOVA; paired t-test, Chi-Square) (1)
§  Key findings (1)
§  For each article listed in the table, write two to three paragraphs that includes discussion of (6 points for each article):
§  Primary purpose of study  (1)
§  Study method (1)
§  Brief discussion of the sample (1)
§  Key findings contribution to evidence (1)
§  Strengths of study (1)
§  Limitations of study (1)
37

Clinical Integration
§  After evaluating the significance of the evidence, determine/describe if evidence found is applicable to your PICOT question (3)
§  Identify how the evidence can impact/influence patient care (3)
§  Determine and discuss whether further research about the topic is warranted or whether an evidence based change in clinical practice is warranted (4)
10

Plans for Proposal
§  Provide an overview of your proposal plan to examine PICOT question (10)
10

Style
(this is not a heading but APA format and writing style must be followed)
§  Paper uses APA writing style, which includes grammatically correct language and spelling, economy of expression, precision, clarity  (3)
