Week 4

In 350-400 Words

1. The Melnyk (2019) describes how to access guidelines.  Review the data bases and search for one clinical practice guideline that interests you.  If your identified clinical problem and PICOT lend themselves to a clinical practice guideline, you may want to choose a clinical practice guideline related to your clinical problem and PICOT.  It may be more than possible that there is not a clinical practice guideline that is related to your identified clinical problem and PICOT…..that is more than fine……then choose a clinical practice guideline that is simply of interest to you.  A. Name the guideline. B. Name the resource (database)  which housed this practice guideline. C. State the strength of the guideline based on the validity and reliability of its recommendation. D. Answer all of the questions listed in Box 8.4 Rapid Critical Appraisal checklist on page 245 of the Melnyk text to evaluate the attributes of the guideline.

 

2. After listening to the AGREE II overview tutorial and tutorial/ practice, note the necessary steps to evaluate a guideline. Find one article which the authors used the AGREE II tool to evaluate a practice guideline.

[Go to the library and use a medical/health database – use the search terms “practice guidelines” and “Agree tool. There are numerous articles.]  (like this one I can find an article and send you the paper)

Summarize the following about the article you chose for discussion: A. What is the citation of the article? B. What were the findings and conclusion? C. What was the review rated? D. What was the overall assessment of the quality of the guideline? E. Did the guideline clearly present the author/s’ recommendations?
