Download the Johns Hopkins Research Evidence Appraisal Tool and the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool located in the Student Resource Center under “Project & Practicum Resources.”
Select one of the eight practice problems that burden the overall health of the United States. Conduct a library search for two qualitative research studies addressing this problem. Appraise the two qualitative research studies using the Johns Hopkins Research Evidence Appraisal Tool.
After appraising and determining the Level of Evidence and Grade of Quality for your selected qualitative studies, summarize your findings on the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool.
Include your completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool that includes your two qualitative research studies as an attachment with your initial post. Also, include PDF versions of your selected two qualitative research studies with your initial discussion post. Our faculty team will review both your two research studies and Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool.
Analyze the evidence summary of the two research studies to address the following.
- Does the research design answer the research question? Explain your rationale.
- Were the study sample participants representative? Why or why not?
- Compare and contrast the study limitations in these two studies.
- Based on this evidence summary, would you consider either or both of these qualitative research studies as support for your selected practice problem? Explain your rationale.
