Instructions: A major skill that is learned in this course is how to critically read and critique nursing research articles. The purpose for critiquing an article is to critically evaluate the research process followed by the author(s) of the assigned article. This is an information-intensive, time-intensive process that is not learned overnight. To demonstrate your skill at critiquing an article, you will complete this open-book multiple choice assignment.
Here’s how you should approach completing this week’s assignment to begin critiquing an article:
1. First, do your assigned reading in Grove & Gray (2019) and complete the reading worksheets early in the week. This will introduce you to the critique skills you will need for the week.
2. Skim the entire instructor assigned research article that has been posted in Module One for you so that you will have an idea of what it is about. Lightly cross out the abstract for the article (you won’t be using it). Then, for this week, re-read carefully the article from the methods section through the end of the article.
3. Print the Research Article Critique, Part Two and find the best answer to each question based on your assigned reading for the week and on what you have read in the instructor assigned research article.
4. Some of the questions in the critique assignment below will seem unfamiliar to you. Look up key terms from the question in your textbook. Some examples of these terms might be: problem statements, hypotheses, or variables. You can also look in Chapter 12 for an example of a critical appraisal (or critique) of a quantitative research article.
5. Once you have completed this assignment “on paper”, enter your answers by the assignment due date and time listed in the syllabus. Ignore any wording that indicates that “this is a test” and carefully enter your answers from this document.
6. This RAC is intended to be your own work. Do not discuss the questions with other students online or any other way. Doing so would be collusion and will be reported to the Office of Community Standards.
If you have questions about this assignment, you can post them to the Q & A board for help. Please do not post the exact question from the assignment below and ask the group for the answer as this would constitute academic dishonesty.
Your assigned article for critique is
Fukuhara, J.S., O’Haver, J., Proudfoot, J.A., Spies, J.M., & Kuo, D.J. (2020). Yoga as a complementary and alternative therapy in children with hematologic and oncologic disease. Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing, 37, 278-283. https://doi.org/10.1177/10434542209097
