critically evaluate a published theory (nursing or non-nursing) and apply the model to your PICOT question.
Select a theory or conceptual model relevant to your research interest. Determine how the key concepts or variables of interest relate to each other within the selected framework.
If the author explains their theory through a diagram, explain what each part of the diagram means.
Write a paper explaining the model – generally and specifically applied to your topic of interest. Examine strengths and weaknesses of the selected model in general, and as it applies to your research topic. Hint: think about how you would explain this if you were teaching a novice about the theory.
