Consider a practice or policy that you see in your workplace that makes you question the rationale. Is there research-based evidence that supports an intervention for it, or is a practice just tradition or popularity? What you select to study for this paper will be the topic that you will adopt for investigation for the entire course beginning this week.
For the Week 3 assignment you will be asked to complete a matrix to evaluate the strength of 4 research studies. Consider a topic that interests you that relates to evidence-based research. Some of you have already mentioned topics such as urinary tract infection and hospital acquired infections. For problems such as these researchers have conducted research to apply approaches in the clinical setting to solve or decrease the problem. For this assignment you will be searching the Walden databases to find those types of peer-reviewed research studies.
