Evidence Appraisal Research
Review Chapter 5 Searching the Evidence, Chapter 6 Evidence Appraisal Research, and Chapter 7 Evidence Appraisal Nonresearch in the Johns Hopkins Evidence-based Practice for Nurses and Healthcare Professionals Guidelines. Use these resources to appraise the evidence you gathered in your search of the evidence and construct an evidence table using Appendix D Hierarchy of Evidence Guide and Appendix E Research Evidence Appraisal Tool and Appendix G Nonresearch Evidence Appraisal Tool. A template for the Summary of Evidence Table is found in Appendix G Individual Evidence Summary Tool. Use this to guide development of your evidence table with the following columns:
Author and date (APA formatted)
Title of Article
Population, size (n)
Type of Evidence (ie: RCT, mixed method, quasi-experimental, qualitative, systematic review, practice guideline, etc…)
Description of Intervention
Findings that Help Answer the EBP Question
Evidence Level and Quality
Implications for Proposed Project
The evidence table will be included as an Appendix in your final proposal.
Include an APA formatted reference list of articles and resources used in developing the evidence table. The reference list will be integrated into the reference list for revised drafts and the final version of the proposal.
