with Scoring Rubric
Purpose
The purpose of this assignment is to: a)
formulate a PICO (T)-formatted clinical question, b) identify key terms for
conducting a review of the literature, c) search for relevant evidence in scholarly
databases, and provide a summary of research articles to support an answer to
the clinical question.
Course Outcomes
Through
this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
(CO#3)Apply
research principles to interpretation of the content of published research
studies. (PO 9)
(CO#4) Analyze data from relevant sources,
including technology, to inform the delivery of care. (PO 4)
(CO#5) Analyze the American
Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials of Masters Education in
Nursing. (PO 1)

Due Date:Sunday 11:59 PM MT at the end of Week 5.
Total Points Possible: 200
Requirements:
Select a health-related topic applicable
to your practice setting and formulate a clinical question using the PICO
(T) format.Identify key terms that you will use to
search the literature, based on the PICO (T) elements.Search for information on your formulated
clinical question in each of these three databases: PubMed, CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health
Literature), and The Joanna Briggs Institute database.Present the results of the searches in
the tables provided in the Evidence-Based Practice Searchable Clinical
Questions Form found in Course Resources. Place this completed form in
the Dropbox.From the articles you found during your
database searches, choose ten scholarly peer reviewed articles that would
help provide an answer or provide insight to your clinical research
question and write them in an annotated bibliography format. Submit this
APA 6th ed format paper into the Dropbox for a Turnitin Review.Submit the Searchable Clinical Questions
Form and your annotated bibliography paper to the Dropbox by the due date.
The annotated bibliography is the only part of this assignment that you
need to have the Turnitin similarity report less than 25%.

Preparing the paper
1.
In Course Resources, you will find the Week 5
Evidence-Based Practice Searchable Clinical Questions Form. This is the form that you can use to document
your search process and results. Below, you will find an example of how to
complete the tables as you are doing each search
2.
The notes section is to be completed in detail
as each step of the search process is performed.
3. An
optimal range of 10-15 scholarly articles is to be achieved for each database search. If this is not possible, a detailed explanation
is to be included in the notes section. Donot stop too soon or you may miss
some valuable article to help answer your clinical question. You want to be
able to identify ten scholarly peer reviewed articles that would help answer or
provide insight to your clinical research question so you can summarize them in
an annotated bibliography written in APA 6th ed format. The
annotated bibliography will be a separate Word document in APA 6th
ed format.

Example:
PubMed
Clinical Question: In patients with muscle spasms, is relaxation
as good as anti-spasmodic medication in reducing the incidence of muscle
spasms?*
The PICO (T) elements are:
P = patients with muscle
spasms
I = anti-spasmodic
medication
C= relaxation
O = reducing incidence of
muscle spasms
T = not applicable in this case

Searchable Clinical Questionswith
Annotated BibliographyGuidelines
with Scoring RubricPurpose The purpose of this assignment is to: a)
formulate a PICO (T)-formatted clinical question, b) identify key terms for
conducting a review of the literature, c) search for relevant evidence in scholarly
databases, and provide a summary of research articles to support an answer to
the clinical question.Course OutcomesThrough
this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:(CO#3)Apply
research principles to interpretation of the content of published research
studies. (PO 9)(CO#4) Analyze data from relevant sources,
including technology, to inform the delivery of care. (PO 4)(CO#5) Analyze the American
Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials of Masters Education in
Nursing. (PO 1)Due Date:Sunday 11:59 PM MT at the end of Week 5. Total Points Possible: 200Requirements:1.
In Course Resources, you will find the Week 5
Evidence-Based Practice Searchable Clinical Questions Form. This is the form that you can use to document
your search process and results. Below, you will find an example of how to
complete the tables as you are doing each search2.
The notes section is to be completed in detail
as each step of the search process is performed.3. An
optimal range of 10-15 scholarly articles is to be achieved for each database search. If this is not possible, a detailed explanation
is to be included in the notes section. Donot stop too soon or you may miss
some valuable article to help answer your clinical question. You want to be
able to identify ten scholarly peer reviewed articles that would help answer or
provide insight to your clinical research question so you can summarize them in
an annotated bibliography written in APA 6th ed format. The
annotated bibliography will be a separate Word document in APA 6th
ed format.Example:
PubMedClinical Question: In patients with muscle spasms, is relaxation
as good as anti-spasmodic medication in reducing the incidence of muscle
spasms?*The PICO (T) elements are:P = patients with muscle
spasmsI = anti-spasmodic

years) Clicked Search. This was in the range of 10-15 scholarly articles so
I started looking at each of these articles to see if any of them would help
answer my clinical research question. I then chose three of these articles
for my annotated bibliography.*This table reports the history of an actual
