Using the PICOT question developed by your group in Week 3 over your selected clinical issue, work in your groups again to apply steps 1–3 of the EBP as described by Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt in Chapter 1.

While there are six formal steps, your group only needs to address steps 1–3 for this assignment:

  • Step 1: Formulate the Burning Clinical PICOT Question (5 points)
    • Include the PICOT question that was developed by your group in Week 3.
  • Step 2: Search for the Best Evidence (10 points)
    • Use each of the keywords from the PICOT question to perform a systematic search (this skill was learned in Week 4). Discuss how you performed your search, including search terms and process.
  • Step 3: Critical Appraisal of Evidence (Initial Thoughts) (25 points)
    • Create an annotated bibliography on a minimum of five empirical research studies that resulted from this search. Include the following for each article:
      • Reference for each study using APA 7th edition format and style
      • Purpose of the study
      • Research question(s)/hypotheses
      • Research design/evidence rating
      • Summary of how findings contribute to the PICOT question
