Part 1: Critical Appraisal of Research

  • Identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the basis of a clinical inquiry.
  • Develop a PICOT question to address this clinical issue of interest.
  • Using the keywords from the PICOT question, search at least four different databases in the Walden Library to identify at least four relevant peer-reviewed articles at the systematic-reviews level.
  • Conduct a critical appraisal of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected by completing the Critical Appraisal Worksheet.

Part 2: Evidence-Based Best Practices

Based on your appraisal, recommend a best practice that emerges from the research you reviewed. In a 1- to 2-page narrative, address the following:

  • Explain the best practice that emerged, justifying your proposal with APA citations for the evidenced-based research that you reviewed.
