Individual Evidence Summary form


Individual Evidence Summary

From your search in the last assignment, take the 10 best articles or evidence you can find.

Use the attached Johns Hopkins EBP Research appraisal form or Non-research appraisal form and complete whichever form is appropriate for each article or evidence type. (Remember, you may be looking at research and non-research evidence.)

After these are completed (10 of them) you will have the information to complete the Initial Evidence Summary and Value of Evidence.

Complete the attached Individual Evidence Summary form with the best evidence found on your practice question. (Save all your documents as you will need them in the future to translate the findings and create an action plan.)
