|HCS||NUR||2007D||2||Research For Evidence-Based Practice 2|
During this distance education (synchronous) course students build on the knowledge they acquired in NUR 2000/2200/2400 and NUR 2011/2211/2411 to develop an evidence-based protocol to address an answerable clinical question. Students will learn how to write an evidence-based question, conduct an exhaustive review of published literature on a clinical topic, integrate critically appraised research studies, develop an evidence-based protocol, and propose a method to implement and evaluate the protocol. Students will also learn to critically appraise published clinical practice guidelines. Students will develop an evidence-based document that transforms empirically developed information for use in clinical practice.
