Professional Custom Writing Services from the Experts!

There are many sources of information available on the web and in journals relating to the nursing discipline. Therefore, it is of
pivotal importance to understand the basic tenets of critical appraisal of research for its use in intraprofessional healthcare
practices. The aim of evidence-based practice (EBP) is to employ a three-pronged approach blending the best available research
evidence, patient values and preferences, and clinical expertise.
In this task, you will critique two primary research evidence sources. You will select one quantitative and one qualitative peerreviewed
journal article on a healthcare topic of interest.
Requirements:
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10%
match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. Use the
Turnitin Originality Report available in Taskstream as a guide for this measure of originality.
The rubric provides detailed criteria for evaluating your submission. You are expected to use the rubric to direct the creation of
your submission. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain
hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
Note: Research evidence must not be more than ten years old.
Note: Be sure to upload a copy of the full text of the articles with your submission.
