about this item

This is the first resource to provide APRN students and practicing clinicians with a step-by-step guide to critically analyze evidence from research studies. As part of a profession that relies on best evidence, nurses need to be able to effectively assess research articles. Equipped with these skills, nurses will lead an informed practice and improve patient care.

With 14 qualitative and quantitative studies, chapters use previously published research articles to demonstrate the actual critique process. This text delves past outlining the elements of critique to teach by example, walking the reader through every part of a research article, from the title to the conclusion, and highlighting specific queries that need to be answered to craft a strong critique. The research articles in this book offer a broad range of clinical areas and diverse methodologies to highlight the fundamental differences between qualitative and quantitative studies, their underlying paradigms, and relative strengths and weaknesses. With a consistent, robust critiquing template, this content can easily be applied to countless additional research studies.
