o begin, you will need to select 15 peer-reviewed articles that are closely related to your PICOT statement and that were published within the last 5 years. It may be helpful to use a database such as PubMed or CINAHL to find relevant articles.
Once you have selected your articles, you will need to evaluate the level and strength of evidence for each article using an evaluation table. This table should include information such as the author, title, journal, study design, sample size, and results.
When evaluating the strength of evidence, you may consider factors such as the study design (e.g. randomized controlled trial, observational study), the size and representativeness of the study sample, the presence of confounding variables, and the statistical significance of the results.
After completing the evaluation table, you will need to provide a synopsis of each article. This synopsis should include a brief summary of the study’s purpose, methods, and results, as well as an assessment of the article’s strengths and limitations.
Throughout your writing, it is important to use solid academic writing, including proper in-text citations and references presented using APA documentation guidelines.
Overall, the goal of this assignment is to provide a comprehensive review of the literature related to your PICOT statement, demonstrating your ability to accurately identify and use research in nursing practice.
