Research Paper

For this week, you will be completing a research appraisal about a women’s health topic in which you may be interested. The purpose is to complete only a synthesis of the topic. To start, only look at studies that are specific to your women’s health topic (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). Your appraisal will assist in finding the most current evidence. Remember, this is only for the purpose of synthesis. Simplicity is key to a successful evaluation. Below is a way to assist you in compiling your significant articles. Your table should only contain 5 articles. Finalize your findings in 1–2 pages and submit with your evaluation table.

In the headings for the columns, include the following:

  1. Citation: Author,      year, title (Less than 5 years)
  2. Conceptual Framework:      Theoretical basis for study
  3. Design/Method: Indicate design      and describe what was done in the study
  4. Sample/setting: Number,      characteristics, attrition rate, and why
  5. Major variables studied and      their definitions: Independent/dependent variable
  6. Measurement: What scales were      used to measure the outcome variables (e.g., name of scale, author,      reliability info)
  7. Data analysis: What stats were      used to answer the clinical question
  8. Findings: Statistical findings      or qualitative findings (one for every statistical test mentioned in data      anlysis)
  9. Appraisal/Worth to Practice:      Strengths and limitations of the study, risk or harm if study intervention      or findings implemented, and feasibility
