DNP 820 Week 3 Critical Appraisal of Practice Guidelines

Details:

While there are several tools to critically appraise practice guidelines, the most comprehensively validated appraisal tool is the AGREE II Instrument. The AGREE II Instrument can be used by individual practitioners to critically appraise health guidelines and by decision makers to inform policy decisions. The purpose of the AGREE II Instrument is to provide a framework to:

  1. Assess the quality of guidelines.
  2. Provide a methodological strategy for the development of guidelines.
  3. Inform what information and how the information ought to be reported in guidelines.

Overall assessment includes rating the overall quality of the guideline and whether the guideline would be recommended for use in practice.

Items are rated on a 7-point scale from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 7 (Strongly Agree). A score of 1 is given when there is no information on that item or if it is poorly reported. A score of 7 is given if the quality of reporting is excellent and when full criteria have been met (Score explanations found in the AGREE II-GRS Instrument).

A quality score is calculated for each of the six domains, which are independently scored. Domain scores are calculated by summing up all the scores of the items in the domain and by scaling the total as a percentage of the maximum possible score for that specific domain.

For this assignment, you will choose a guideline and assess the overall quality and whether the guideline would be recommended for use in practice.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of this assignment:

  • Download the AGREE II instrument.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please Review the rubric prior to the beginning to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.

Directions:

Perform the following tasks to complete this assignment:

  1. Using the AGREE II instrument as your guide, create a table that discusses a practice guideline in which you might have questioned the recommendations. (Note: You may be able to copy and paste the instrument into a new Word document and complete the information.)
  2. Each domain must have its own cell (similar to the one shown in the manual) and add domain scores and an overall guideline assessment. Be sure to include comments and additional considerations that influenced your rating decision and cite any sources used.

DNP 820 Week 4 Introduction to the Literature Review

Details:

Empirical research is the foundation of scholarly research and scholarly writing. An empirical article is defined as one that reports actual results of a research study. An empirical article includes a description of the study, an introduction, a research question, an explanation of the study’s methodology, a presentation of the results of the study, and a conclusion that discusses the results and suggests topics for further study.

As you search the library for scholarly research, you should limit your search to identify empirical articles. (You can use the “Empirical Research Checklist” from DNP-801 to assist in this determination.) After finding an empirical study, begin to assess the validity of the conclusion by determining if the conclusion answers the proposed research question and if the methodology is appropriate.

As you move forward in your doctoral journey, you will read research papers that will require you to assess the validity of the studies in question. To accomplish this, qualitative assessments about the research must be made by comparing, contrasting, and synthesizing what the research says.

In this assignment, you will continue to develop the skill of writing, by reviewing 15 research articles associated with your chosen topic and using the content to identify at least five major concepts and subthemes related to your topic.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of this assignment:

  • Use the “Empirical Research Checklist” to assist in the determination of empirical articles.
  • Use the “Research Article Chart” to provide a summary review of each component of your assignment.
  • Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

Directions:

Part 1: Selection of 15 Articles  

Select 15 empirical articles related to your PICOT question. Use the “Empirical Research Checklist” worksheet to ensure that each article you select meets all of the established criteria. At least one article must demonstrate a quantitative methodology.

Part 2: Research Article Chart 

Using the articles acquired in Part 1, provide a summary review of each component using the “Research Article Chart” template.

Part 3: Synthesis of Research Studies 

Based upon your review of the 15 research articles, identify at least five major concepts that relate to your project topic, and three subthemes related to each concept.

Using the information from the completed “Research Article Chart,” and the major concepts and subthemes you have identified, write a 2,000-3,000 word paper that synthesizes the content of the 15 research studies.

Summarize each major concept and focus on providing a detailed synthesis of the three identified subthemes that support that concept by addressing the following.

  1. Introduction of the identified subtheme
  2. Summary of the research questions posed by the studies
  3. Summary of the sample populations used
  4. Summary of the limitations of the studies
  5. Summary of the conclusion and recommendations for further research
