Please note: 2,000 word count includes in-text references but excludes the citations and Reference List. Background The prevention of falls among older adults is an urgent public health issue in Australia and internationally (Nyman & Skelton 2017; Gillespie, Robertson, Gillespie, Sherrington, Gates, Clemson, et al. 2012). The proportion of Australians aged 65 years and over is predicted to increase from 14% (3 million people) in 2010 to 23% (8.1 million people) by 2050 (Intergenerational Report, 2010).
Scenario template contains the ‘Introduction’ to a clinical issue and the Research Question.
You will read the related Scenario Package that contains page one of 8 primary research articles relevant to the clinical issue.
You will select 4 primary research articles (from the 8 provided) that you think are most relevant to answer the research question.
You will retrieve the 4 primary research articles, critique, then write the summary of each article in the Assignment 1 template provided. You will learn how to write a summary using the step process explained in Week 2 of the course.
You will complete the Discussion and Conclusion sections in Assignment 1.
Carefully read the Marking Feedback Rubric at the end of the Assignment 1 template so you are clear what is required for this assignment.
Please DO NOT DELETE the marking feedback form.
Topic 2: Analyse Evidence

3 Step Format

You have analysed your primary research articles and received feedback from others. You will next write a summary of each of your 4 primary research papers following the 3 step format, with a major focus on the ‘findings’ from each study.

What is the difference between an abstract and a research summary?

An abstract is not a summary. An abstract is a brief, comprehensive overview of a research paper – often in a structured format. Abstract writing requires knowledge and comprehension and is a basic form of scholarly writing. An abstract does not include the opinions of the writer. The abstracts from your selected research papers cannot be used in your Assignment 1.

A research summary requires the writer ‘to analyze the article’s clarity, purpose, research methodology, findings and recommendations’ (Harris 2006, p. 136). Analysis goes beyond description and into critique and examination.

What is a Summary?

A Summary is explaining what a research paper is about in your own words. You should identify the main points and then evaluate the usefulness of the work in relation to the research question. Each Summary comprises a citation followed by a brief paragraph.

Write a 300 word Summary for each of your 4 research articles in Assignment 1 – follow this 3 step format:

1 Citation details (UNISA Harvard format); Words in the reference are Not included in the word count.

2 A short statement that explains the study design, objectives, participants, and data collection methods and analysis;

3 Results or findings/themes – approximately 50% of the summary. This detail is important because you will compare and contrast the findings from the four primary research studies in the Discussion section of Assignment 1.

A Summary is formal academic writing and follows these guidelines:

Write in a SINGLE paragraph (about 300 words);
Write in full sentences using academic writing style;
Use transition words (e.g. furthermore, moreover, however, therefore …);
Do NOT use any in-text references because you are only writing about a single paper.
The summary you will write for each of your selected 4 research articles will provide a starting point for you to analyse the relevance and quality of the evidence on the topic and usefulness to answer the research question.

Topic 3: Implement Research Plan

Introduction

The purpose of this topic is to learn how to develop a coherent synthesis of the findings from your four (4) research articles so you can write the Discussion section in Assignment 1.

So in other words – you will compare and contrast findings and ‘bring it all together’ in a coherent discussion that reports how the findings will be used to answer the research question and identify implementation for different groups.

Primary Research Article

The following primary research article reports on a research study that was conducted with students enrolled in Nursing Project in 2014. Students were invited to participate in the study.

The findings confirm that undergraduate research education may have a significant effect on nursing students’ research skills and use of evidence-based practice, and minimise barriers to evidence-based practice uptake post education.

Relevance to clinical practice

Undergraduate research education may play an important role in improving student nurse uptake of evidence-based practice; whether these changes can be sustained when transitioning from student nurse to registered nurse is a question for further research.
