Research and Evidence-based Nursing Practice

Critical Thinking (Please read and reference the textbook (Nursing Research Methods and Critical Appraisal for Evidence-Based Practice 9th edition by Geri Lobiondo-Wood, and Judith Haber) to answer these questions with details). For my last discussion #2, I received a 77.78% because you had primary sources wrong along with the abstract). Please follow the discussion rubric and PowerPoints slides attached to answer every question. This professor is a very hard grader.

1. Minimizing bias and decreasing threats to internal validity is important to experimental designs. How will a researcher use the three criteria (for true experimental designs), manipulation, randomization, and control to minimize bias and decrease threats to internal validity?

2. Many times, researchers state that randomized clinical trials (RCT) provide the strongest level of evidence for an individual study when using an evidence-based model. As a researcher, why do you think this statement is true?

3. When conducting an experimental design, how will you as a researcher, use intervention fidelity to increase the strength and quality of the evidence provided by the findings of the study?

4. What is your cosmic question? (This is a question you ask your peers to respond to based on the chapter discussed in class this week i.e. Quantitative studies (Chapt. 8, 9, 10. The PowerPoint slides).
Discussion Rubric:
Discussion/Forums (15_% of the total grade): Students will participate in online forum discussions.
See Rubric in Syllabus and Moodle for grading. Weekly discussion items are to stimulate and engage
learning. The student will be asked to critically analyze a topic or concept discussed in class and submits your comments on a threaded discussion board. The student will be responsible for submitting
a weekly, two-part assignment:
Part 1: The first part will be a summary of the topic in the student’s own words (200- 250
words) to demonstrate their understanding of the topic. The student is required to cite the book
using APA format (or add a reference from evidence-based literature). For some forum
discussions there will also be supplemental material that the student may use to develop the
summary; if supplemental content is provided, the student will need to cite at least one of those
sources in the summary to demonstrate their application of the knowledge that the student have
gained from the lecture and the text. Within the summary the student is also allowed to convey
real life experiences, when appropriate, to further develop their point. Part 1 is due every
Sunday by 2355
