Select a practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research.

P-Population- who your are going to focus on
I-Intervention-what your action will be
C-comparison-what are you going to compare your intervention to and
prove your point
O-Outcome-what do you expect will happen with your intervention?
T-Time frame-is there a time frame you can use to implement your
intervention then assess your outcome?
Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on
your selected practice problem of interest. This literature search
should include both quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed research
articles to support your practice problem.
Select six peer-reviewed research articles which will be utilized
through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. Be sure that some of the
articles use qualitative research and that some use quantitative
research. Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed.
Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed
assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.

To narrow/broaden your search, remove the words qualitative and
quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic.
For example: Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what

the article. The author will provide a description of data collection
using qualitative or quantitative methods.
