Upload your Poster, one PowerPoint Slide, to Turnitin by the deadline provided in the course calendar.
Select a current nursing practice or procedure. You can use a practice or procedure from your daily work environment.
Find research studies that support the procedure or practice. The key term here is research studies.
Find at least 2 research studies or one meta-analysis or systematic review that support the practice or procedure. Supporting EBP requires a high level of evidence from research. Refer to the Evidence Hierarchy on page 131 of your textbook and look for studies from the higher levels. A good place to start would be the Cochran Collection in the library database. Journal articles on the topic can provide expert opinion to support EBP. These are a lower-level of evidence in the hierarchy of evidence but are often valid. Your supporting literature DOI or URL must lead to your resources to be counted. Check your DOI or URL carefully.
