Capella University Determining the Credibility of Evidence and Resources Discussion

Question Description
I need help with a Nursing question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Please see attached pdf with all the instructions

Scenario

For this assessment, you may choose from the following options as the context for the quality or safety issue or

chosen diagnosis for researching and completing this assessment:

The specific diagnosis you identified in your previous assessment.

The simulation Vila Health: Determining the Credibility of Evidence.

A personal practice experience in which a sentinel event occurred.

Instructions

The purpose of this analysis is to better understand what constitutes credibility of journal articles as well as

websites. The role of the baccalaureate-prepared nurse in incorporating evidence-based research continues to

growth in clinical practice. As quality improvement (QI) measures to reduce safety risks continue to be emphasized,

the need for evidence-based models and evidence-based templates is growing. This type of systematic approach to

incorporating evidence-based findings allows nurses to make clinical and operational decisions based upon the best

available evidence. When the most up-to-date evidence-based findings are utilized, patient-centered care improves

outcomes and enhances the patient experience.

For this assessment:

Explain the criteria that should be used when determining the credibility of journal articles as well as websites.

Support your explanations with references to the literature or research articles that describe criteria that

should be used to determine credibility.

Your identification and determination of credibility should be done within the context of your chosen

scenario for this assessment. For example, if you choose to use the provided Vila Health scenario, your

initial identification of resources should be of resources that will best help address the presented issue.

However, if you are locating resources to help provide evidence-based care for the diagnosis you

identified in the first assessment, you may want to begin your literature and evidence search from the

databases that identified. Any of the three scenario options are acceptable. So, pick the one that most

interests you.

Be sure to address the following in this assessment, which correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring

guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so that you will know what is needed for a distinguished score.

Describe a quality or safety issue, or a chosen diagnosis, that could benefit from an evidence-based

approach.

Explain criteria that should be considered when determining credibility of resources such as journal articles

and websites.

Analyze the credibility and relevance of evidence and resources within the context of a quality or safety

issue, or a chosen diagnosis.

This is where you are selecting the specific resources to help address the issue in your chosen

scenario.

Explain the importance of incorporating credible evidence into an EBP model used to address a quality or

safety issue, or a chosen diagnosis.

Communicate using writing that is clear, logical, and professional with correct grammar and spelling using

current APA style.

Length of submission: 2–4-page scholarly paper, this does not include the APA-formatted title page and

reference list.

ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS: Capella University Determining the Credibility of Evidence and Resources Discussion

 

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
