#2 Directions

 

My topic is “bedside nursing report 

I think 3 maximum 4 pages is ok. because are two I want to have enough $$ to pay for both.

 

  1. Describe your topic of interest. This is worth 15 points.
  2. Locate a total of five research databases  related to your topic. Each research database description is worth 30 points. You may search for these in various locations, e.g., the Internet or the CCN Library.  You may NOTchoose the databases that are already familiar to you – MEDLINE, PUBMED (which also indexes MEDLINE), GOOGLE SCHOLAR, and CINAHL. Instead, you are expected to expand your knowledge of evidence-based sources. Places to help you begin include your textbook, which lists databases and websites that report research. The Chamberlain online library (http://library.chamberlain.edu)  gives you access to several databases and provide tutorials for searching. Government sites such as those at the National Institutes of Health offer collections of research on a variety of subjects. The key to choosing the databases is that each contains research-based evidence that also pertains to your topic of interest. Again you are looking for new databases to use in the future and not articles related to your nursing clinical issue.
  3. Review each database to gather information to create a description for the assignment. Each description must:
  4. identify the title of the research database;
  5. describe the location of the research database in a way that a reader could find it. This should be the URL. This URL should take you to the home page of the database.
  6. name owner or publisher of the source;
  7. describe the research database. This must be in your own words and not copied and pasted from the original source. Include the purpose of the database and the subject matter it covers. This may be two to three sentences; and
  8. explain how the research found in the database relates to your topic of interest. This may be a two or three sentences.

Title of Database: Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery

Location of Database (URL): www.joannabriggs.edu.au

Owner or publisher of Database: Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery (JBI)

Describe (in your own words) the research database or collection of research including the purpose and the subject matter it covers:

The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international not-for-profit Research and Development Organization that provides evidence-based resources for healthcare professionals in nursing, midwifery, medicine, and allied health. Those with membership are able to obtain evidence-based practice information from systematic reviews, evaluation reports, electronic journals, best-practice information, and consumer healthcare information.

Explain how the source relates to your topic of interest:

JBI is relevant to my topic of interest because it provides reports, systematic reviews,

and journal articles, and best-practice information on current issues in healthcare. Hospital

readmissions are a major issue in healthcare. The database had several resources

addressing the problem of hospital readmissions and identifying strategies for

improvement.
