Discuss the link between the PICOT question, the research articles, and the nursing practice problem you identified. Include relevant details and supporting explanation and use that information to propose evidence-based practice changes.

1- Propose a research question related to your potential research project that would require a qualitative research approach. Select the best qualitative method that could answer the research question proposed? What are the strengths and weaknesses of that method?

2-Identify a practice issue that would benefit from utilizing a mixed methods approach. Discuss how the quantitative and qualitative data would complement one another and add strength to the study. Discuss the challenges that you might encounter in using a mixed methods approach. Support your discussion using current mixed methods research articles.

  • Research Critiques and PICOT Statement Final Draft

    Prepare this assignment as a 1,500-1,750 word paper using the instructor feedback from the previous course assignments and the guidelines below.

    PICOT Question 

    Revise the PICOT question you wrote in the Topic 1 assignment using the feedback you received from your instructor.

    The final PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

    Research Critiques

    In the Topic 2 and Topic 3 assignments, you completed a qualitative and quantitative research critique on two articles for each type of study (4 articles total). Use the feedback you received from your instructor on these assignments to finalize the critical analysis of each study by making appropriate revisions.

    The completed analysis should connect to your identified practice problem of interest that is the basis for your PICOT question.

    Refer to “Research Critiques and PICOT Guidelines – Final Draft.” Questions under each heading should be addressed as a narrative in the structure of a formal paper.

    Proposed Evidence-Based Practice Change

    Discuss the link between the PICOT question, the research articles, and the nursing practice problem you identified. Include relevant details and supporting explanation and use that information to propose evidence-based practice changes.
