NRS2806: Research in Nursing- Critical Evaluation- Nursing Research Report AssignmentTask:The aim of this assignment is to critically evaluate a journal article. This will provide you with the skills and knowledge to be able to evaluate the quality and relevance of research so that you can make informed decisions about applying it to practice.This assignment addresses the following course learning outcome/s:1. Examine the contribution of research to evidence-based practice;2. Evaluate the credibility of the information provided by research studies;3. Demonstrate understanding of the major elements of the research process that underpin translation to practice.Task Description (Instructions):For this task you need to write a 2300 word critical evaluation report. In your report you will critically evaluate a journal article and discuss its relevance to clinical nursing practice. You must choose to evaluate a Randomised Controlled Trial OR a Qualitative Study (see below).For this report you must use the ‘critical evaluation tool template’ (available in the Assessment 3 Folder in the [email protected] site) to guide what information to include in each section. The template is your guide only and is not to be submitted.In your report you must use the following headings:1. Introduction2. Title and Abstract3. Structuring the Study4. The sample5. Data Collection6. Data AnalysisCHOICE 1: Randomised Controlled Trial, Case StudyWhat the study is about:Peripheral intravenous catheters are the most commonly used medical invasive device in hospitals today and are frequently initiated in the emergency department. Peripheral intravenous catheter failure frequently occurs after 48 hours post insertion, suggesting that improvements in securement can be targeted at this timeframe. A novel approach for improved peripheral intravenous catheter fixation is the use of medical-grade skin glue (cyanoacrylate) at the insertion site. Skin glue has been reported to be effective for securing central venous, epidural, and peripheral arterial catheters, with improved fixation compared with standard polyurethane dressings.
