NUR 151 Research Tuesday class NUR 151 Research Tuesday class Presentation Transcript

  • NUR 151 EBP and Library Research
  • LEARNING OBJECTIVES
    • Distinguish a research article from other types of articles
    • Describe & understand the importance of peer review
    • Distinguish between qualitative & quantitative research
    • Describe differences between databases & the internet
    • Describe the content in CINAHL & Medline
    • Conduct a keyword search in CINAHL & Medline
  • PRIMARY RESEARCH ARTICLES
    Reports on the results of a single study or experiment
    Can be qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods research
    The author(s) of the article is/are the person(s) who conducted the study or experiment.
  • TYPICAL FORMAT OF A RESEARCH ARTICLE
    Abstract
    Introduction
    Methods
    Results
    Discussion
    Works cited
    Example: Effectiveness of a Falls-and-Fracture Nurse Coordinator to Reduce Falls: A Randomized, Controlled Trial of At-Risk Older Adults
  • PEER REVIEW
    A process done by many scholarly journals
    Expert reviewers (peers) evaluate the article’s methodology, merit, and overall unique contribution to research in a specific discipline PRIOR to publication
    In the health sciences, peer review is almost universal when it comes to primary research
    published in the journal literature
    Why is this important?
  • RESEARCHERS GENERALLY FOLLOW ONE OF TWO TYPES OF METHODOLOGIES:
    Qualitative-investigations which use sensory methods such as listening or observing to gather & organize data into patterns or themes
    Quantitative-investigations in which numbers are used to measure variables such as characteristics, concepts or things.
  • There are other types of content in peer reviewed journals
    Peer reviewed journals publish original research as well as other materials such as:
    News articles
    Editorials
    Review articles
    Case studies
    EX: Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing
    Not all of these materials are peer reviewed
  • TYPES OF CONTENT IN PEER REVIEWED JOURNALS
  • Review Articles
    Author(s) describe or summarize the research of others
    Attempt to identify trends or draw broader conclusions
    May use same or similar format to a research article.
    Meta-analyses and systematic reviews vs literature reviews
    Example: Prevention of falls and fall-related fractures in community-dwelling older adults: a meta-analysis of estimates of effectiveness based on recent guidelines.
  • Case Studies
    A detailed report on one patient/case
    Draws conclusions only on that one patient in that context-i.e. not generalizable
    Descriptive
    Goal is to offer new directions for research; ask new questions
    Multidisciplinary approach to "accidental" falls in the elderly: a case report.
  • NOTE: ALL OF THESE ARTICLE TYPES CAN APPEAR IN A PEER REVIEWED JOURNAL
  • Internet vs. Databases
    Internet
    Databases
    Broad sweep of information
    Unorganized/unstructured
    Includes advertising
    Access is free, but some information is fee based
    Partially indexed
    Keyword searching is available, but subject categories may be difficult to determine
    Results ranked my relevancy determined by computer programs
    Unstable: content and format change frequently
    No selection criteria for content – anyone can add to the internet
    Quick and easy, but not necessarily accurate.
    Information includes: commercials, personal opinions, current news, entertainment, government documents, academic research, non-profit /educational sites, hoaxes, social networks.
    Focused on a particular discipline or type of information
    Organized/structured
    No advertising
    Available only to subscribers
    Fully indexed
    Searchable by subject, keyword, author, date and other limits such as full-textor peer-reviewed
    Results ranked by chronology or relevancy
    Stable: articles can be located again for verification
    Content is selected and controlled
    While delivered over the Internet, not considered a website
    Information includes: abstracts, articles in magazines, journals, and newspapers, scholarly/peer-reviewed articles, case studies, and research
  • CINAHL
    Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health
    Contains articles in nursing and fields such as audiology, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, etc
    750 journals
    1 million citations back to 1937
  • Medline
    World’s premier medical/health science database
    Articles from all health fields: medicine, nursing, dentistry, exercise science, veterinary medicine, allied health, etc.
    4800 journals
    Over 19 million citations back to 1940
  • CINAHL and Medline
  • CINAHL VS MEDLINE
