Overview: “Information Retrieval Paper – Part 1”

This Module you will begin to develop an Information Retrieval Paper. This Assignment focuses on identifying appropriate evidence-based nursing practices related to specific problems you may identify as you work in the healthcare/workplace setting.

The goals of an Information Retrieval Paper are to (1) practice using APA format, (2) summarize and examine the strengths and limitations of research articles, and (3) prepare you for the Nursing Research Course where you will write a research paper using the skills you have learned completing this Information Retrieval Paper.

As a part of your Information Retrieval Paper, you will begin development of a research question using PICO format. Chapter 10 of the Role Development text book explains PICO. Be sure to develop your research question and then just below your research question delineate what the P, I, C, and O components of your question are.

For this Module 3 Assignment you will prepare a Title Page in proper APA format for your Information Retrieval Paper, identify three peer-reviewed articles, and summarize each article using APA format.

It may be helpful to look at the outline for the entire paper before you begin this Module’s Assignment. Assignments in this Module plus in Module 4 and 5 will address the Information Retrieval Paper.

Part 1: Research Problem and Question using PICO Format

A.In the space below, identify the clinical problem in the workplace setting that will serve as the focus of your information retrieval paper. Make sure that the problem is one that would be under your complete control as a nurse.

Clinical Problem (Type in box below)

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) in Hospitalized Patient. C

B. In the space below, compose a preliminary research question about the clinical problem that you identified in the workplace. Use this criteria in composing a preliminary research question:

– Question must relate to a clinical problem in the workplace.

– Question cannot be answered with a simple yes or no.

– The issue to be studied is under your complete control as a nurse.

– The question is open ended.

Delineate the PICO components of your question.

State your question

Then under the question

P (problem) =

I (intervention) =

C (comparator) =

O (outcome) =

Preliminary Research Question and Identified PICO Criteria (Type in box below)

Problem: Catheter related to Urinary Tract Infection

Intervention: urinalysis or urine culture is a test that done to look for the red blood cells, white blood cells and bacteria. For effective intervention, it is important to test for chemicals such as nitrites in urine. This test is important since can diagnose the infection.

Comparator: the clinician need to interfere to find out if the infection has spread to the kidneys or is just in the bladder. The patient must take antibiotic as a way of preventing the infection from spreading to the kidneys.

Outcome: in a successive treatment, the infection symptoms will go away within 24-48 hours. However, if you have kidney infection, it can take a week or longer.

  1. Compose a rationale that explains why you chose the research question. (Type in box below)

Rationale for Selecting the Research Question (Type in box below)

I chose this research question because nurses too often fail to give proper care to patient who confine to an indwelling Foley catheter. urinary tract infection is a significant disease that can harm the whole urinary track if not catch on time and treat adequately. Also, because I believe UTI is preventable. Thus, urinary tract infection is a sensitive issue that needs to be focus on.

  1. After completing this portion of the Assignment, go to this module’s Discussion, 
    and follow the directions for sharing your research question. After receiving feedback 
    from your colleagues, revise your research question, if necessary, in the space provided.

Revised Research Question (Type in box below)

  • Complete after participating in the Module 3 Discussion. Type your revised Research Question in the box provided below.
  • “What interventions can be done to decrease the risk of UTI related infections in patients with Foley catheters?”

Part 2: Title Page Components

In this part of the Assignment, you will record the parts of the title page for your Information Retrieval Paper by typing into the text boxes in the graphic organizer that follows the instructions chart.

Part 3: APA References and Summaries

  • Select three peer-reviewed, evidence-based articles that address your research question.
  • Compose an overview about your choice of the three articles. Answer these questions:
    • Where did you search for articles?
    • How did you decide what articles to include?
  • Post references to the three articles in APA format.
  • Summarize the article and how it addresses your research question.

Overview

Where did you search for articles? How did you decide what articles to include?

I searched the articles on the internet. I decided what the articles to include basing on the clarity and relevance of the information contained in such articles. In my research, I was looking for professionally, scholarly and educational nature of the article.

Article 1

In the space below, post the reference for the first article in correct APA format.

O’sullivan, D.J. Fitzgerald, M.G., Meynell, M.J., & Malins, J. M. (2014). Urinary Tract Infection. British medical journal, 1(5228), 786.

In the space below, write a summary paragraph in APA format. Use scholarly writing to describe the article, the decision-making process you used to select the article, and how it addresses your research question. Use professional writing style.

The urinary tract infection is an infection that involves the ureters, kidneys, bladder and urethra. Any part of the urinary system can become infected. The farther up the urinary tract the infection is located, the more serious the infection can be. The UTI is more common in adults than in children. However, about 2% – 3% of the children get the urinary tract infection.

Article 2

In the space below, post the reference for the second article in correct APA format.

Lee, J.B., & Neild, G.H. (2013. Urinary tract infection. Medicine, 35(8), 435-456.

In the space below, write a summary paragraph in APA format. Use scholarly writing to describe the article, the decision-making process you used to select the article, and how it addresses your research question. Use professional writing style.

The symptoms of the urinary tract infections can either be complicated or uncomplicated. Uncomplicated infections can occur in health person and they are caused by Escherichia coli. On the other hand, the complicated infections are associated with functional, anatomical, or metabolic abnormalities of the urinary tract.

Article 3

In the space below, post the reference for the third article in correct APA format.

http://www.healthline.com/health/catheter-associat…

In the space below, write a summary paragraph in APA format. Use scholarly writing to describe the article, the decision-making process you used to select the article, and how it addresses your research question. Use professional writing style.

Ways to prevent catheter related UTI. Proper hands washing before and after handling the catheter; cleaning the catheter and the skin around the catheter every day. In addition, you must drain the drainage bag multiple times per day and keep the drainage bag below the bladder. Also making sure the catheter is not twist, changing out the catheter at least every month. Finally, the catheter must remove when there is no longer a need for it because the unnecessary use of catheters can be a cause for UTI.
