This assessment provides an opportunity to apply research skills to a current health care problem or issue.

As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, a family member, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.

  • How do you approach a problem or issue within your organization, when you observe it?
  • How often have you needed to find credible information to solve a personal or professional problem? How did you find the information you needed?
  • What are peer-reviewed resources? Why are peer-reviewed resources considered to be credible and valid?
  • How would you explore evidence-based best practices in your field of study?

Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. At a minimum, be sure to address each point. In addition, you are encouraged to review the performance level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed.

For this assessment, you will research best practices related to a current health care problem. Your selected problem or issue will be utilized again in Assessment 3. To explore your chosen topic, you should use the first two steps of the Socratic Problem-Solving Approach as described on Campus to aid your critical thinking.

  1. View the Assessment Topic Areas media piece linked in the Resources and select one of the health care problems or issues in the media piece to research. Write a brief overview of the selected topic. In your overview:
    • Describe the health care problem or issue.
    • Describe your interest in the topic.
    • Describe any professional experience you have with this topic.
  2. Conduct a search for scholarly or academic peer-reviewed literature related to the topic and describe the criteria you used to search for articles, including the names of the databases you used.
    • You will want to access the applicable Undergraduate Library Research Guide related to your degree (found at the NHS Learner Success Lab) for tips to help you in your search.
    • Use keywords related to the health care problem or issue you are researching to select relevant articles.
  3. Assess the credibility of the information sources you find.
    • Determine if the source is from an academic peer-reviewed journal.
    • Determine if the publication is current.
    • Determine if information in the academic peer-reviewed journal article is still relevant.
  4. Select four current scholarly or academic peer-reviewed journal articles published during the past three to five years that relate to your topic.
  5. Explain the relevance of the information sources.
    • Describe how the health care problem or issue is addressed in each source.
    • Discuss what kind of contribution each source provides on your selected topic.
  6. Analyze the scholarly literature or academic peer-reviewed journal articles using the annotated bibliography organizational format.
    • The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to document a list of references along with key information about each one. The detail about the reference is the annotation. Developing this annotated bibliography will create a foundation of knowledge about the selected topic.
    • List the full reference for the source in APA format (author, date, title, publisher, et cetera) and use APA format for the annotated bibliography.
    • Make sure the references are listed in alphabetical order, are double-spaced, and use hanging indents.
    • Follow the reference with the annotation.
  7. In your annotation:
    • Identify the purpose of the article.
    • Summarize the source:
      • What are the main arguments?
      • What topics are covered?
    • Include the conclusions and findings of the article.
    • Write your annotation in a paragraph form. The annotation should be approximately 150 words (1 to 3 paragraphs) in length.
  8. In a separate paragraph or two at the end of the paper, summarize what you learned from your research.
    • List the main points you learned about.
    • Summarize the main contributions of the sources you chose and how they enhanced your knowledge about the topic.

Example Assessment: You may use the assessment example, linked in the Assessment Example section of the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.
