Conduct a search for 10 peer-reviewed, translational research articles published within the last 5 years that demonstrate support for your PICOT. You may include previous research articles from assignments completed in this course. Use the “Literature Evaluation Table” provided to evaluate the articles and explain how the research supports your PICOT. Identify either a safety or quality improvement initiative related to improving population health
Once your instructor returns this assignment, review the feedback and make any revisions necessary. If you are directed by your instructor to select different articles in order to meet the assignment criteria or to better support your PICOT, make these changes accordingly. You will use the literature evaluated in this assignment for all subsequent assignments you develop as part of your evidence-based practice project proposal in this course and in NUR-590, during which you will synthesize all of the sections into a final written paper detailing your evidence-based practice project proposal.
Refer to the “Evidence-Based Practice Project Proposal – Assignment Overview” document for an overview of the evidence-based practice project proposal assignments. Identify either a safety or quality improvement initiative related to improving population health

Welcome to Class Everyone! My name is L and I will be facilitating this class.
In this class we will be exploring translational research and Evidence Based Practice as well as forming a PICOT question. This will be a very busy week as translational research may be a new topic for you and you will need to decide on a population and intervention to begin your PICOT question. Our goals for this week are:
Identify the different levels of translational research.
Differentiate translational research from evidence-based practice.
Discuss the application of translational research to population health management.
Evaluate sources of translational research.
Select a valid nursing practice problem for an evidence-based practice project proposal.
Please proceed to the Class Wall and tell us a little about yourself. When you complete your introduction be sure to read the policies, syllabus and weekly expectations.
You will be expected to submit answers to two DQs and to respond to at least three peers. Two posts will be your DQs and you need a minimum of 3 responses in addition to your 2 DQs. Each DQ must be at least 150 words or 12 sentences and must have two references and citations. Quotes are not allowed. Responses must be at least 75 words or 5 sentences and have one reference and a citation.
Be sure to review all the Study Materials as well as find the website for your state or county health department as your PICOT question must be based on a mortality/morbidity indicator related to a clinical problem pertaining to a population. When forming your question DO NOT use any content related to nurse staffing, staffing ratios, staffing levels (shortages) or any major system-level changes. A template is provided in your materials for the beginning of your PICOT question. You must use this template.
Please be sure to use the link to the GCU library provided and then click on Translational Research on the left as you will need this site to search for the literature you will need and to answer your DQs. Identify either a safety or quality improvement initiative related to improving population health
Refer to the calendar for the due date of the assignments. Be sure to submit your papers to LopesWrite to evaluate for plagiarism. However, please note that your first paper due this week does not need to be submitted to LopesWrite.
