Rationale for Selecting Journal Article

  1.  
  2.  
  3.  
  4. Systematic review and meta-analysis

Guirguis-Blake, J. M., Michael, Y. L., Perdue, L. A., Coppola, E. L., & Beil, T. L. (2018). Interventions to prevent falls in older adults: Updated evidence report and systematic review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task ForceJournal of the American Medical Association, 319(16), 1705–1716.

 

  1. The article just like every other systematic review provided solid research evidence to be able to manage the problem of falls in older adult and the interventions. In the study, out of 62 randomized clinical trials, 7 were examined and 3 most common studies of intervention type were used as multifactorial to create a customized intervention for a comprehensive individualized fall risk assessment. 
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5.  
  6.  
  7. Randomizes controlled trial (RTC) or experimental study

Lök, N., Bademli, K., & Canbaz, M. (2018). The effects of anger management education on adolescents’ manner of displaying anger and self-esteem: A randomized controlled trialArchives of Psychiatric Nursing, 32(1), 75–81.

 

  1. According to Gray, Grove, and Sutherland, (2017), randomized controlled trial involves providing best research evidence based on experimental study.  This experimental study was designed as a single blind and randomized control trial which consists of a controlled group and an experiment group with 30 students from each respectively.

  4.  
  5.  
  6.  
  7. Quasi-experimental study

Harvey, E. M., Freeman, D., Wright, A., Bath, J., Peters, V. K., Meadows, G.,…Collier, B. R. (2019). Impact of advanced nurse teamwork training on trauma team performanceClinical Simulation in Nursing, 30, 7–15.

 

  1. This occurs when an independent variable is being manipulated. In this case, the independent variable are age, gender, injury severity score, time in minutes to focused assessment with sonography for trauma, time to computed tomography, time in the Emergency Department, and trauma-related injury severity score
  2. Descriptive correlational, predictive correlational, and cohort studies

Jokh Chaaya, D. A., de Souza Nogueira, L., de Cassia Gengo e Silva Butcher, R., Reboreda, J. Z., Silva Bonfim, A. K., & Padilha, K. G. (2018). Pulse pressure and mortality risk in critically ill patientsAACN Advanced Critical Care, 29(2), 118–125.

  1. This study is a retrospective cohort study that was performed in Brazil. Data were collected from the patients within 3 months of admission into the ICU. The data also involves collecting pulse pressure that was calculated from systolic and diastolic blood pressure within the first 24hrs of admission. 

 

  1.  
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5. Mixed methods systematic review and qualitative meta-synthesis

Li, H., Shao, Y., Xing, Z., Li, Y., Wang, S., Zhang, M.,…Sun, J. (2019). Napping on night‐shifts among nursing staff: A mixed‐methods systematic reviewJournal of Advanced Nursing, 75(2), 291–312.

 

  1. This article synthesized research on the influence of night‐shift napping on nurses, using the mixed‐methods systematic review. The tools used are the Mixed Methods Assessment tool and Cochrane Risk of Bias Tool and applied.

 

  1.  
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5. Descriptive study and qualitative study

Currie, E. R., Christian, B. J., Hinds, P. S., Perna, S. J., Robinson, C., Day, S., & Meneses, K. (2016). Parent perspectives of neonatal intensive care at the end-of-lifeJournal of Pediatric Nursing, 31(5), 478–489.

 

 According to the Gray, Grove, and Sutherland, (2017), descriptive study provides limited evidence for making changes in practice. In this case, it discovers new areas of research. There is no researcher intervention and attempt to demonstrate causality at this stage. The study also discovered experiences of parents whose infants are hospitalized in the NICU. The researchers stated the challenges in the study and suggested that further research is necessary so as to understand barriers affecting the intervention need.

 

  1.  
  2.  
  3.  
  4.  
  5. Opinions of expert committees and authorities

Cotton, B. P., & Ferszt, G. G. (2018). The role of NPs in medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorderNurse Practitioner, 43(5), 8.

 

 This is the base of the pyramid and it’s based on opinions of expert and committees. The Nurse Practitioner is the expert in this type of study. An example of this is seen in the Veteran’s Administration (VISN 21). Where a group of Nevada Nurses came together for Nursing Research & Evidence-based Practice Collaborative Conference July 19, 2019.
