Critically appraise literature for level and quality of evidence to support practice change. (POs 1, 3, 5, 6, 7) Appraise global healthcare practice problems and DNP practice relevant to advanced nursing practice. (POs 1, 3, 9)
Conduct a search of the library to find one quantitative research article related to one of the National Practice Problems. You will use the quantitative article you have selected for your paper. The DNP-prepared nurse uses the most recent (within 5 years) evidence available.
Present the written reference and the permalink to the article you chose.
Attach your completed Johns Hopkins Appraisal Tool to your response.
Describe what you found most interesting or concerning in the study you selected.
When discussing, for the Week 3 Assignment, the Johns Hopkins Appraisal Tool, please refer to the Level of Evidence and Quality Grading as:
Level of Evidence is identified as (I, II, or III)
Quality Grade is identified as A, B, or C for quantitative or A/B or C for qualitative.
These eight National Practice Problems include: COPD, mental illness, addiction, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and safety. You will successfully demonstrate your library search skills to identify evidence.
