Critique
of Systematic Research Review (SRR)
Guidelineswith
Scoring Rubric
Purpose
The purpose of this
assignment is to provide students with practice in identifying, reading, and
critiquing systematic research reviews related
to nursing. A systematic review is defined as A summary of evidence,
typically conducted by an expert or expert panel on a particular topic, that
uses a rigorous process (to minimize bias) for identifying, appraising, and
synthesizing studies to answer a specific clinical question and draw
conclusions about the data gathered (Melnyk&Fineout-Overholt,2011, p.582).

Course Outcomes
Through
this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to
(CO 3) Synthesize for dissemination the research
findings from nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11)

(CO 4) Compare and critique quantitative and
qualitative designs and methodologies for research studies. (PO 4, 7, 9, 11)

Due Date:Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 5
Total Points Possible:175 Points
Requirements:
1.
Choose an SRR that pertains
to your practice setting.Describe
the relevance of the nursingresearch
problem addressed in a SRR to practice. (CO 3, 6)
2.
Critique
the levels of evidence of the studies used in the SRR, specifically the designs
of the studies included. (CO 6)
3.
Critique
the clarity with which the studies are presented and critiqued. (CO 6)
4.
Describe
the overall findings of the studies, as summarized in the SRR. (CO 3, 6)
5.
Critique
the conclusions of the SRR, with implications for your current practice and future research. (CO 3, 6)
6.
Utilize
the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews to locate a true SRR for this
assignment.
7.
Paper
length should be between 4-6 pages (not including cover page and reference
page(s).
Preparing the paper
Consult
your faculty member if you are uncertain about whether your article is a true
SRR. If it is not, your grade will be affected because you will not be able to
address all of the above objectives.

Important: Submit a copy
of the systematic research review that you are critiquing as a separate
document before submitting your paper.This will help Turnitin from returning a
high similarity percentage on your written work. Remember to keep Turnitin
similarity to 24% or less or you will be deducted points on APA.
