Evidence Based Project, Critical Appraisal Of Research

Realtors rely on detailed property appraisals—conducted using appraisal tools—to assign market values to houses and other properties. These values are then presented to buyers and sellers to set prices and initiate offers.

Research appraisal is not that different. The critical appraisal process utilizes formal appraisal tools to assess the results of research to determine value to the context at hand. Evidence-based practitioners often present these findings to make the case for specific courses of action.

In this Assignment, you will use an appraisal tool to conduct a critical appraisal of published research. You will then present the results of your efforts.

To Prepare:

  • Reflect on the four peer-reviewed articles you selected in Module 2 and the four systematic reviews (or other filtered high-level evidence) you selected in Module 3.
  • Reflect on the four peer-reviewed articles you selected in Module 2 and analyzed in Module 3.
  • Review and download the Critical Appraisal Tool Worksheet Template provided in the Resources.

The Assignment (Evidence-Based Project)

Part 3A: Critical Appraisal of Research

Conduct a critical appraisal of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected by completing the Evaluation Table within the Critical Appraisal Tool Worksheet Template. Choose a total of four peer-reviewed articles that you selected related to your clinical topic of interest in Module 2 and Module 3.

Note: You can choose any combination of articles from Modules 2 and 3 for your Critical Appraisal. For example, you may choose two unfiltered research articles from Module 2 and two filtered research articles (systematic reviews) from Module 3 or one article from Module 2 and three articles from Module 3. You can choose any combination of articles from the prior Module Assignments as long as both modules and types of studies are represented.

Part 3B: Critical Appraisal of Research

Based on your appraisal, in a 1-2-page critical appraisal, suggest a best practice that emerges from the research you reviewed. Briefly explain the best practice, justifying your proposal with APA citations of the research.

A Raisin In The Sun Analysis Research

*A Raisin in the Sun*:

Write a 900- to 1500-word (3-5 pages) that answers:

-Lorraine Hansberry is often viewed as a visionary because of her ability to predict many of the relevant issues to the African-American community today. Identify some of these issues and explain how they are the same or different from how Hansberry portrayed them.

Include within your analysis at least three citations from two acceptable scholarly secondary sources, correctly cited using MLA style, as well as evidence from the play itself, the primary source. Include a Works Cited page at the end.  Also remember you should include direct quotations and evidence from the text (the play) itself.

Note that you need an argument that supports your claim or thesis. Starting with an assertive, solidly-written claim or thesis is crucial.

Source Requirement:

Integrate at least three pertinent quotes (or summarize or paraphrase information) from at least two academic-level outside sources  (preferably peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles, although academic websites, major magazines or newspapers, and most government websites are usually acceptable) into your analysis. “Quick find” source material (such as you’d find by Googling) is not acceptable for this. You may find sources on Google Scholar. You must locate sources in an academic library database to meet research requirements; additional quality sources are allowed.

What role and responsibility do the parents and caregivers hold in the development of pediatric anxiety?

POST # 1 What role and responsibility do the parents and caregivers hold in the development of pediatric anxiety? If you were working with parents/caregivers, how could you help them to establish a fostering and productive environment for a child experiencing anxiety?  The relationship that parents have with their children is important and essential for positive physical and emotional development. This is really a nature versus nurture question, and I believe that both matters. While we cannot alter our genetics, and we know that neurotransmitters play a role in anxiety disorders, adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) also can play a significant role in the development of pediatric anxiety disorders. Parents have a responsibility to care for their children’s physical and emotional well-being. Research shows that children need their physical needs to be cared for in a way that supports their growth and development and slides them from physical and sexual maltreatment (Breiner et al., 2016). Children also develop positive emotional, social competence when they are supported and witness positive interactions in these realms (Breiner et al., 2016).  There are many ways that parents and caregivers can foster a positive upbringing so that children can meet their developmental milestones and develop positive coping mechanisms. If a child is experiencing anxiety there are many parenting interventions that can help. According to Goldstein (n.d.), a child psychologist who specializes in anxiety disorders, setting clear expectations and establishing routines are helpful for children experiencing anxiety. You cannot eliminate anxiety, but you can help your child manage it by letting them know what to expect from situations, this will help anxiety decrease (Goldstein, n.d.). There are many ways that parents can help children experiencing anxiety, and strategies are not a one size fits all, it depends on the developmental level of the child. When parenting interventions are not working, seeking expert help is warranted.  After reviewing the resources on ACEs, how might you change your practice based on the information you learned? What may be some barriers to enacting these changes in your current clinical setting? Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) undeniably have a profound impact on childhood experiences that carry over into adulthood. Both childhood experiences and parenting can have an impact on childhood anxiety (Platt et al., 2016). I utilize a trauma-informed care (TIC) approach in my practice with every patient. TIC uses an approach to understanding that ACEs and any trauma that someone experiences are pervasive, and TIC promotes an environment that helps heal and does not re-traumatize an individual (Leitch, 2017). One barrier to utilizing TIC is that it is not always easily recognizable in everyone. Children, in particular, do not have the developmental capability to recognize when trauma is happening to them. Does social media have an impact on children and adolescents who suffer from social anxiety disorders? Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the use of social media, and advice that you can give to patients and parents regarding the use of social media.  Social media can have a negative impact on children and adolescents. Social media can produce fear and anxiety in children as well as social media overuse (Hodge et al., 2017). Adolescents can replace social media with social interactions, creating a distorted sense of reality, and leading to social anxiety disorder (Hodge et al., 2017). Cyberbullying is a very real issue as well, which can contribute to depression and anxiety. Some advantages of digital media may include learning opportunities, social support, and access to information (AAP, 2016). I advise parents that the American Academy of Pediatrics (2016) recommends a limit of 1 hour a day of high-quality programming for children ages 2 and up.
