Research Critiques

Use the feedback you received from your instructor on these assignments to finalize the critical analysis of each study by making appropriate revisions.

The completed analysis should connect to your identified practice problem of interest that is the basis for your PICOT question.

Use the “Research Critiques and PICOT Question Guidelines – Final Draft” document to organize your essay. Questions under each heading should be addressed as a narrative in the structure of a formal paper.Please note that there are two new additional sections: Outcomes Comparison and Proposed Evidence-Based Practice Change.

General Requirements

Minimum three peer-reviewed sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years, appropriate for the assignment criteria, and relevant to nursing practice.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style.

PICOT Question:

Hospital-associated infections (P), does implementing hand hygiene (I), compared to other preventive measures (C), prevent hospital associated infections (O), within three months of implementation (T)?

P=Hospital associated infections

I=Hand hygiene

C=Other preventative measure

O=Prevent hospital associated infections

T= Three months of implementation

Clearly use two qualitative research, and two quantitative related to the PICOT question (part of the feedback from the previous order is that only one article was qualitative, and one was quantitative in each paper instead of two). (Do not use the previous orders as a reference).

These are the issues to improve based on feedback.
