Developed PICOT question

4 articles addressing PICOT question

Summary related to the strengths and weakness found in the articles reviewed.

summarize these articles using the grading criteria and example EBP grid provided. The requirements included are levels and strengths of evidence, how well the studies were conducted (who, what, where, when, why, how), how well the articles address the PICOT question, and gaps. After appraising research articles and completing the EBP grid, the students will then write a summary of findings, discuss what policies and procedures should be developed, revised, or continued based on what was learned from the development of the PICOT question and the review of articles.

2. Write discussion of the application of evidence to your own practice. Explain how you are going to use the information learned during this assignment in your own nursing practice. The document should be no more than one page in length.

Discussion Rubric:

· Individualized: Student links evidence in paper to personal practice and identifies where and how they will implement into practice.

· Examples: Student provides at least two examples of how they will implement the information into their personal practice.

· Assignment Strategies Learned: Student identifies strengths and weaknesses of their team dynamics and how what they have learned will be implanted into their own personal practice with a nursing team.

· Quality: Paper is 1 page in length. No less than 3⁄4 of a page and no more than 1and 1⁄2 pages for this discussion rubric.
