Policy And Advocacy For Improving Population Health
· Clinical area of interest is good – burnout
· PICOT – okay; however, poor pt. outcomes — are you thinking “pt satisfaction” or what? I would have aimed for something that would have looked more at nurses and perhaps retention, nurse satisfaction, etc. Or, compared strategies for healthcare providers r/t burnout prevention or reduction.
· APA – citations – see et al. rule and apply in citations with more than 2 authors.
· Be sure to utilize at least two filtered databases when conducting search for systematic reviews. Databases such as Joanna Briggs and Cochrane. Articles selected and not representative of Systematic Review, they are primary research articles. A systematic review is secondary research — uses research that was conducted previously (primary research). Systematic Reviews are extremely detailed and look at throughout many databases to collect all the primary research studies done on the topic.
· Level of Evidence in Peer-Reviewed Articles – be sure to share for each of the peer-reviewed articles the level of evidence based on a particular source – explain – did this represent the Hierarchy of Evidence, or John Hopkins Level of Evidence shared? Remember, Level 1 are considered the highest level and representative of Systematic Reviews — in primary studies, such as the articles you located, those are lower on the hierarchy of evidence pyramid.
· List all reference together on the last Reference page – include all. In presentation include a thorough and detailed explanation of the strengths of using systematic reviews for clinical research. From the articles you located, what strengths did you note from the systematic review — did it shed some light into discovery of the PICOT answer? What other strengths from systematic reviews did you learn about from various course resources?
Always have a clear purpose statement and conclusion
