One of the many issues from Ironridge was the amount of air pollution in the city. I decided to research diseases and diagnoses that were caused by air pollution. I came up with the research question ‘ Does exposure to air pollution increase the risk of being diagnosed with rheumatic diseases?’ The Quantitative study I discovered was a meta-analysis, meaning it was a systematic review that reviewed quantitative studies to gather information and evidence to answer the research question. Meta-analysis’ integrate and statistically summarize evidence from high level studies through a statistical calculation called effect size (Chamberlain College of Nursing, 2016) . Sun et al. (2016) conducted a quantitative study in which their objective was to summarize the existing knowledge of the relationship between air pollution and the development of rheumatic diseases. They searched databases such as MEDLINE and EMBASE, to find cohort and case control studies that reported risk elements for the development of rheumatic diseases regarding air pollution PICOT Worksheet – Week 3 For Use September 2018 Name: Marly Delatour Gabriel Date: 09/22/18 Your Instructor’s Name: Elli Charneia Purpose : To identify a problem or concern that nursing can change and develop a PICOT question to guide the change project. Directions : Use the required form below to complete the Week 3 Assignment PICOT Evidence Worksheet. This includes filling in the table with information about your research question and your PICOT elements and the second part is filling in the Evidence Worksheet. Step 1 : Select the key PICO terms for searching the evidence. Clearly define your PICOT question. List each element P (problem, population, or problem), I (intervention), C (Comparison with other treatment/current practice), and O (Desired outcome), T (Time Frame). Is the potential solution something for which you (as nurse or student) can find a solution through evidence research? Look in your book for guidelines to developing your PICOT question and also read the required articles. Step 2 : Identify the problem. What have you noticed in your work or school environment that isn’t achieving the desired patient or learning outcomes? What needs to change in nursing, what can you change with the support of evidence in the literature? Describe the problem or practice issue that you. Review the differences in predictive and prescriptive studies and select a predictive or prescriptive articlethat you found in your literature search. What are the independent variables (IV), dependent variables (DV), and mediating variables (MVs) that you find in the article? How do determining IVs, DVs, and MVs help you discern the theory tested in the research? In your particular article, what risk factors are identified, or what recommendations are provided? Anaalysis and Application of Clinical Practice Guidelines & Scoring Rubric Purpose The purpose of this assignment is to provide an opportunity for students to apply and disseminate information based on practice summaries. The most common type of practice summary in healthcare is the clinical practice guideline (CPG). Course Outcomes Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to (CO 3) Synthesize for dissemination the research findings from nursing and related disciplines (POs 1, 3, 4, 5, 9); and (CO 6) Utilize the principles of evidence-based practice to propose strategies that can address nursing issues (POs 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9). Due Date: Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 7 Total Points Possible: 200 Points R EQUIREMENTS : Through this assignment, the student will Develop summary of a clinical practice guideline. (COs 3, 6) P REPARING THE PAPER You will develop a summary that you could use within an evidence-based practice (EBP) committee or related venue to share with your colleagues. Select (1) one of the following issues: (1) One of the issues identified in Week 1 in Ironridge or Summerville, (2) An issue pertinent to your practice setting. Search the literature and evidence-based practice websites and databases to find a recent clinical practice guideline (no more than 5 years) related to the issue you select. The course Webliography provides websites where you can find clinical practice guidelines, but there are many others available in specialty-organization websites. A good place to start is .

Identifies the target population Refinement of Nursing Issue into Research C REFINEMENT OF NURSING ISSUE 2 Background and Significance of Nursing Issue An evidence-based practice (EBP) is known to improve patient care and outcome in the nursing field. Some EBP could take many years for the evidence that is generated from research then it is to be translated into the clinical practice to improve healthcare quality and patient outcomes. When EBP is developed, it is defined as the reliable use of current best evidence to make best decisions about patient care and outcome. Development in research including the evidence-based approach continues to change the relationship between research and practice. Evidenced-based practice initiates with a questioning of clinical practices. Nurses often encounter questions about current practice when delivering care to patients. For example, why do patients come to hospitals when colorectal cancer has aggressively progressed? How do patients prevent colorectal cancer? How can a colorectal cancer screening rate be increased? How can healthcare providers promote colorectal cancer screening and help reduce disparities in colorectal cancer screening? The issue of how to prevent colorectal cancer by screening education could help reduce disparities in colorectal cancer screening in the community. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death and is the third most widespread cancer in both men and women and in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017). The rationale of this research within the evidence-based practice is providing an education for both patients and providers, guiding them regarding a colorectal cancer screening through navigator system. It increases colorectal cancer screening to ensure patients living longer, healthier, and supporting the early detection of cancer to lead to higher survival rate and quality of life. This project also examines the importance of nurse navigator system with PICOT question, discusses a review of the collected literature, and proposes practice REFINEMENT OF NURSING ISSUE 3 changes from examining the findings that could help increase colorectal cancer screening in the community The anatomy of good research based on good question. The PICOT format provides a practice-based research frame for the clinician which helps to formulate and explore important research question. So, what is PICOT? P (population)- refers to sample of the chosen subjects, I (Intervention)- refers to treatment or intervention that will implemented to the subjects, C (comparison)- refers to O (outcomes)- represents the result that will measure outcomes of your intervention and T(time)- Time describes the duration of the study (Echhevarria & Walker, 2014). Picot question help to formulate nursing question in a format based on evidence-based practice. It helps the researchers to eliminate unnecessary or unappropriated assumption in the research because some research takes a long time to achieve desired observations.

(2015) state that during the last decades “cystic fibrosis has been increasingly diagnosed in populations from places such as Latin America and the Middle East” (p.3) besides the traditionally affected populations of white Caucasian descent. The authors draw attention on two particular ways of postural drainage usage among children up to six years diagnosed with cystic fibrosis – head-down tilt versus no head-down tilt with different angles
