Assignment: Evaluate a primary, quantitative and qualitative research, peer-reviewed journal article (suggested length of 3-5 pages) on opioid abuse, answering the following questions for both articles:

Instructions are given below with the topic of Opioid abuse.

Task 1: Analyzing Research Articles

Introduction: There are many sources of information available on the web and in journals relating to the nursing discipline. Therefore, it is of pivotal importance to understand the basic tenets of critical appraisal of research for its use in interprofessional healthcare practices. The aim of evidence-based practice (EBP) is to employ a three-pronged approach, blending the best available research evidence, patient values and preferences, and clinical expertise.

In this task, you will critique two primary research evidence sources. You will select one quantitative and one qualitative peer-reviewed journal article on a healthcare topic of interest.

Requirements: Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

Note: Research evidence must not be more than five years old.

Note: Upload a copy of the full text of the articles with your submission.

Note: You may use the same topic and research articles on both Task 1: Analyzing Research Articles and

Task 2: Evidence-Based Practice Change.

A. Evaluate a primary, quantitative research, peer-reviewed journal article (suggested length of 3-5 pages) that has healthcare implications by doing the following:

Note: You may select an article focusing on a healthcare topic of your choice or an article focusing on one of the following topics: falls and fall prevention, pain management in children, opioid abuse, hepatitis C, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, or hand hygiene and infections in hospitals.

1. Describe how the researcher addresses the following four areas in the selected journal article:

• background or introduction (e.g., the purpose of the study)

• review of the literature (e.g., research used to support the study)

• data analysis (e.g., how the researcher analyzed the data)

• methodology (e.g., research type and sampling methods)

2. Evaluate whether the evidence presented in each of the four areas of the journal article from part A1 supports the outcome of the study and implications for future research.

3. Explain how the protection of human subjects and cultural considerations were addressed by the researcher, using specific information from the journal article from part A.

4. Describe one strength and one limitation of the study.

5. Describe how the evidence from the article in part A informs current nursing practices.

B. Evaluate a primary, qualitative research, peer-reviewed journal article (suggested length of 3-5 pages) that has healthcare implications by doing the following:

Note: You may select an article focusing on a healthcare topic of your choice or an article focusing on one of the following topics: falls and fall prevention, pain management in children, opioid abuse, hepatitis C, catheter associated urinary tract infections, or hand hygiene and infections in hospitals. You may use the same topic that was used in part A.

1. Describe how the researcher addresses the following four areas in the selected journal article:

• background or introduction (e.g., the purpose of the study)

• review of the literature (e.g., research used to support the study)

• data analysis (e.g., how the researcher analyzed the data)

• methodology (e.g., research type and sampling methods)

2. Evaluate whether the evidence presented in each of the four areas of the journal article from part B1 supports the outcome of the study and implications for future research.

3. Explain how the protection of human subjects and cultural considerations were addressed by the researcher, using specific information from the journal article from part B.

4. Identify one strength and one limitation of the study.

5. Describe how the evidence from the article in part B informs current nursing practices.

C. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

D. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.

Task 3: Evidence-Based Practice

Introduction: In this task, you will identify a healthcare problem and develop a PICO question that can be answered using evidence. You will identify a single intervention and then search for five research articles and two non-research articles that support that change practice.

Requirements: Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

A. Write a summary of the significance and background of a healthcare problem by doing the following:

1. Describe a healthcare problem that can be used to develop a PICO question.

Note: You may use the same topic and the same research articles that were used in Task 1 provided they support the proposed intervention. Or you may choose a different topic and select articles focusing on one of the following topics: falls and fall prevention, pain management in children, opioid abuse, hepatitis C, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, and hand hygiene and infections in hospitals.

2. Explain the significance of the problem from part A1.

3. Describe the current healthcare practices related to the problem from part A1.

4. Discuss how the problem affects the organization and patients' cultural background (i.e., values, health behavior, and preferences).

B. Complete a literature review by searching for a total of seven articles consisting of five research articles and two non-research articles related to the healthcare problem from part A1, and describe the search strategy you used to conduct the literature review by doing the following:

Discuss two research evidence sources and two nonresearch evidence sources that you considered.

Note: Please do not use the same primary author for more than two articles. Articles must not be more than five years old.

C. Use your research articles to develop a PICO (patient/population, intervention/indicator, comparison/control, and outcome) question based on the topic.

D. Complete the attached "Evidence Matrix," using the five research evidence sources from scholarly journal sources you located during the literature review in part B. For each article, address the following points:

Note: You may submit your completed matrix as a separate attachment to the task, or you may include the matrix within your paper, aligned to APA formatting standards.

Note: Upload a copy of the full text of the articles with your submission.

author, journal name, and year of publication

research design (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed design, systematic review)

sample size (e.g., numbers of study participants, number of articles, number of control group participants)

outcome variables measured (e.g., identify what the research is measuring)

quality (using the following scale: A, B, C)

results/author's conclusions (e.g., briefly summarize the outcome)

E. Recommend a practice change that addresses the PICO question, using the evidence collected in the attached "Evidence Matrix." You must use all five research articles from the "Evidence Matrix" attachment to support this recommendation via in-text citations.

F. Describe a process for implementing the practice change from part E in which you do the following:

1. Explain how you would involve three key stakeholders in the decision to implement the recommendation from part E.

2. Describe two specific barriers you may encounter when implementing the practice change from part E in the nursing practice setting.

3. Identify two strategies that could be used to overcome the barriers described in part F2.

4. Identify one indicator to measure the outcome (the O in PICO question) of the recommended change practice from part E.

G. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

H. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
