Assignment #5 (Group Assignment)

Assignment #5 (Group Assignment)
Critique of Research Articles: Part 1 (due week 7)
Each work group is to write a team paper that critiques and evaluates the research regarding the practice question or topic.  This paper challenges teams of students to create a model for evidence-based nursing practice.  This model will either support (1) current nursing practice or (2) a change in practice.  This model for nursing practice is based on:
•    identifying a nursing clinical topic (Knowledge-Focused Trigger) or clinical question/problem (Problem-Focused Trigger) (as determined in class Week 1);
•    searching the literature for original research evidence (Assignments #3 and #4);
•    writing a critique and synthesis of four original research articles.
For Assignment #5, write the first half of the paper.  Assignment #5 (the first half of the paper) will be approximately 4 pages
Critique each of the 4 articles in your Bibliography for what class has covered so far.  Omit a critique of their titles, abstracts, and literature reviews.
Include critique of ethical considerations throughout.
