The purpose of this discussion is to demonstrate understanding of the evidence-based intervention in a quantitative research study as the intervention in a
practice change project. As you work to find solutions to a practice problem of obesity, the evidence-based intervention is found through the critical review
and appraisal of quantitative research.
Using the practice problem of odesity, continue your search and appraisal of evidence by analyzing one systematic review research study. Address the
following in the discussion:
Appraise the systematic review research study using the Johns Hopkins Research Appraisal Tool. Transfer your findings to the Johns Hopkins Individual
Evidence Summary Tool.
Analyze the evidence summary tool of the research study to address the following in the discussion:
Determine whether the research design—systematic review, systematic review with meta-analysis, or meta-synthesis —answers the research question.
Explain your rationale.
Based on information in the published study, explain if the search was comprehensible and reproducible.
Based on the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool, determine if there is an evidence-based intervention you might consider for translation to
practice in a practice change project. Explain your rationale.
Based on the Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool Column Observable Measures, consider if you would use this systematic review research
study as support for your selected practice problem. Explain your rationale.
Include your completed Johns Hopkins Individual Evidence Summary Tool and permalink to the selected research study.Outcomes
