Why you chose this article and/or how it relates to the clinical issue of interest (include a brief explanation of the ethics of research related to your clinical issue of interest) The article was selected because it proposes measures to help reduce fall incidences among the elderly population. There is an increased burden of falls among the elderly populations; therefore, the study uses EBP to solve the health issue. The study promotes the ethical principle of beneficence and nonmaleficence. ­­­­The study is relevant in this case because it explores the measures to prevent falls among the elderly population. Furthermore, the study observed the ethical principle of respect, justice, and non-maleficence. None of the harmful interventions were adopted in the study and this makes it ethically appropriate. The study is relevant because it explores the factors influencing the adoption of fall prevention measures and so provides relevant data that help improve community health outcomes. The study thus supports the ethical principle of beneficence. The study explored the fall prevention measures for the elderly populations in the community. The article is relevant because elderly people are at high risk of falls and so it provides a framework for improving their health outcomes. The article supports the ethical principle of justice because it promotes health equality among the population by addressing fall risks among the elderly.
Brief description of the aims of the research of each peer-reviewed article The study aimed to explore the role of the implementation of fall prevention programs in primary care settings that affected fall incidences. The study aimed to assess the beliefs, attitudes, knowledge, and practices developed to prevent falls among the older patients The study aimed to analyze the factors influencing the implementation of fall prevention programs among the elders. The study aimed at analyzing the fall prevention measures for the community-dwelling elders.
Brief description of the research methodology used Be sure to identify if the methodology used was qualitative, quantitative, or a mixed-methods approach. Be specific. The study involved a qualitative approach. Interviews were designed to explore the experiences of the Allied Health Professionals (AHP) on fall prevention. The study involved a quantitative cross-sectional design. Surveys were distributed among the primary healthcare providers to determine their beliefs, knowledge, and practices in regard to fall risk prevention. A convenience sample of 17 ACOs. The study was qualitatively based. Literature reviews of sources published between 2016 and 2018 were used. A total of 50 sources were reviewed. The study involved a qualitative systematic literature review method with sources published between 1990 and 2019 being reviewed.
A brief description of the strengths of each of the research methodologies used, including reliability and validity of how the methodology was applied in each of the peer-reviewed articles you selected. The study employed a total of 42 participants and intensive interviews were conducted to help gather enough data on the research question. The method employed was appropriate and so strengthened the validity and reliability of the study findings. The study sample population was small; however, the selected sample populations were appropriate and would help gather information on their experiences with fall prevention. The ACOs worked in the urban regions and offered inpatient services. The data collection method was appropriate and so enhanced the reliability and validity of the study findings. The study sample population was adequate to provide more information about fall prevention strategies and the motivating factors. The large sample population increases the validity and reliability of the results. The study’s sample population is sufficient and considering that 101 studies were reviewed. The sample population is comprehensive and adequate thus improving the validity and reliability of the findings.
General Notes/Comments The study findings indicated that the AHPs improved the efficiency of the fall prevention programs in society. They were able to identify the fall risks among their clients and adjust their environments accordingly to eliminate the risks. The study reported a lack of proper integration of fall prevention programs in the communities. Furthermore, there was a need to increase awareness of fall prevention measures. Personal goals and adaptive measures can be implemented to prevent falls among the elderly population. Targeting disadvantaged elderly populations and incorporation of customized fall prevention measures reduces the burden of falls among the elderly populations.

Assignment: Evidence-Based Project, Part 1: Identifying Research Methodologies

Is there a difference between common practice and best practice?

When you first went to work for your current organization, experienced colleagues may have shared with you details about processes and procedures. Perhaps you even attended an orientation session to brief you on these matters. As a rookie you likely kept the nature of your questions to those with answers that would best help you perform your new role.

Over time and with experience, perhaps you recognized aspects of these processes and procedures that you wanted to question further. This is the realm of clinical inquiry.

Clinical inquiry is the practice of asking questions about clinical practice. To continuously improve patient care, all nurses should consistently use clinical inquiry to question why they are doing something the way they are doing it. Do they know why it is done this way, or is it just because we have always done it this way? Is it a common practice or a best practice?

In this Assignment, you will identify clinical areas of interest and inquiry and practice searching for research in support of maintaining or changing these practices. You will also analyze this research to compare research methodologies employed.

To Prepare:

Review the Resources and identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the basis of a clinical inquiry. Keep in mind that the clinical issue you identify for your research will stay the same for the entire course.
Based on the clinical issue of interest and using keywords related to the clinical issue of interest, search at least four different databases in the Walden Library to identify at least four relevant peer-reviewed articles related to your clinical issue of interest. You should not be using systematic reviews for this assignment, select original research articles.

Review the results of your peer-reviewed research and reflect on the process of using an unfiltered database to search for peer-reviewed research.
Reflect on the types of research methodologies contained in the four relevant peer-reviewed articles you selected.

Part 1: Identifying Research Methodologies

Why you chose this article and/or how it relates to the clinical issue of interest (include a brief explanation of the ethics of research related to your clinical issue of interest) I chose this article because less than five years old and provides evidence-based answers to my clinical issue. It concerns the role of ruses in pain assessment and management. Ethically, it attempts to answer the safety issue that arises from nurses failing to assess and manage pain efficiently. I chose this article because it was available as full-text, was younger than five years, and also peer-reviewed. This article addresses the acquisition of pain assessment competencies by new nurses through multimedia-assisted instructions. Therefore, it is relevant. Ethically, it addresses quality and patient safety through nursing process assessment. I chose this article because the target population was critically ill patients. Pain assessment this key and one of the vital signs assessed regularly among these patients.  Ethically, preventing further pain to the critically ill can promote recovery and healing, thus beneficent goals from this article.  This article adds an aspect of pain assessment in a critical population to my clinical issue. I chose this article because it addresses my clinical issue in a low and middle-income setting. Health disparities and social determinants of health apply to apian assessment and management as well. Most studies that I evaluated previously addressed my clinical issue in economically advanced settings. Therefore, I saw it ethically fit to understand how the concept of justice and fairness can affect pain management.
Brief description of the aims of the research of each peer-reviewed article The study aimed at evaluating the outcomes of the implementation of a ward-based pain management resource for nurses The study aimed at evaluating the outcomes of implementing a multimedia instructional program on learning pain assessment among new nurses This study aimed to investigate the practices of intensive care unit (ICU) nurses concerning pain assessment. This study aimed at identifying the nurse’s pain assessment practices and factors associated with these assessments
Brief description of the research methodology used Be sure to identify if the methodology used was qualitative, quantitative, or a mixed-methods approach. Be specific. This was a mixed-method study that used audit methods for quantitative data collection and interviews for qualitative data collection. “Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain was also used for quantitative data collection. This was a quantitative study that adopted a quasi-experimental study design using convenience sampling techniques to acquire participants. This was a quantitative study that adopted a descriptive cross-sectional design to explore the study’s variables. The study used a quantitative method that adopted a cross-sectional study. The study involved 290 nurses working in adult care units in Ethiopia. The sampling was by a convenience sampling.
A brief description of the strengths of each of the research methodologies used, including reliability and validity of how the methodology was applied in each of the peer-reviewed articles you selected. The methodology makes the findings detailed and contextualized. For example, the weakness of one method can be compensated by the strengths of the other method in this mixed-method study. On the downside, this was a single-site study that makes inferences from its findings to a new setting unlikely. A high attrition rate (more than 50%) could contribute to biased findings. The use of a novel learning technique makes this study’s findings important for future studies and practice. However, being a single-center study makes its findings specific and not easily generalizable. The sample size (300 nurses) gives the study the ‘power’ to generalization and make reasonable inferences from its findings. However, the cross-sectional design used in this study limits making inferences of causality. This study also had a larger sample size that improve the validity and generalizability of its findings. However, the study did not identify the specific tools the nurses used to assess pain among adult patients. Self-reporting bias makes impacts negatively the validity of their findings.
General Notes/Comments A credible study that I got from a credible source -PubMed Credible sources with straightforward methodology  focusing on knowledge and skill acquisition The utility of pain assessment tools among nurses is an objective way to communicate in critical care settings. This study remains valuable in answering my clinical issue. Another credible source from a peer-reviewed journal
