Week 1: Role
of Research and the Importance of the Searchable Clinical Question
2424 unread replies.101101 replies.
The practice of nursing is deeply
rooted in nursing knowledge, and nursing knowledge is generated and
disseminated through reading, using, and creating nursing research.
Professional nurses rely on research findings to inform their practice
decisions; they use critical thinking to apply research directly to specific
patient care situations. The research process allows nurses to ask and answer
questions systematically that will ensure that decisions are based on sound
science and rigorous inquiry. Nursing research helps nurses in a variety of
settings answer questions about patient care, education, and administration.
As you contemplate your role in the
research process, read the following article.
Kumar, S. (2015). Type 1 diabetes
mellitus-common cases. Indian Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism,
19,S76S77. doi:10.4103/2230-8210.155409.

Choose one case study, and formulate
one searchable, clinical question in the PICO(T) format. There are several
potential questions that could be asked.
Identify whether the focus of your question is
assessment, etiology, treatment, or prognosis.
Remember to integrate references.

Week
2: Search for Literature and Levels of Evidence
4848 unread replies.116116 replies.
1. Reflect
on your practice, and identify a significant nursing clinical issue or change
project that you would like to search for evidence in online sources. Formulate
searchable, clinical questions in the PICO(T) format for your nursing clinical
issue.
2. Next,
review the guidelines for the PICOT Assignment due Week 3. Use your PICOT
elements to search forone report
of a single, original study that has been published within the last 5 years
from the CCN Library that is relevant to your nursing clinical issue.
3. Briefly
describe how it is relevant to your nursing clinical issue. Remember to give a
complete reference to the study.

Week
3: Research Problems, Designs, and Sample
9090 unread replies.113113 replies.
This week, we will discuss the research design
and sample for your nursing clinical issue. The research design flows from the
research question and outlines the plan for the study that will answer the
research question. The design identifies the major components of the study. It
is important to remember that there is no one best design for a research study.
1. After
you review the designs, describe which research design you would expect to find
when searching for evidence relevant to your own research question from Week 2.
Why? Explain your answer.
2. The
most common sampling method is the convenience sample; therefore, many of the
studies that you find for evidence use this sampling method. What are the
implications for using a convenience sample on the way you interpret and use
the findings?

one of the articles from the Week 5 RRL assignment, and discuss the findings.
Would you apply the evidence found to your practice? Explain your answer.
2. Translating
research into practice is the final and most important step in the research
process. Review information you found your nursing clinical issue and explain
ways in which you would share the research-based evidence with your peers.
