Part 1: Critical Appraisal of Research
Identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the basis of a clinical inquiry.
Develop a PICOT question to address this clinical issue of interest.
Using the keywords from the PICOT question, search at least four different databases in the Walden Library to identify at least four relevant peer-reviewed articles at the systematic-reviews level.
Conduct a critical appraisal of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected by completing the Critical Appraisal Worksheet.
Part 2: Evidence-Based Best Practices
Based on your appraisal, recommend a best practice that emerges from the research you reviewed. In a 1- to 2-page narrative, address the following:
Explain the best practice that emerged, justifying your proposal with APA citations for the evidenced-based research that you reviewed.
