NURS FPX 9902 Assessment 2 Literature Search Name Capella university NURS-FPX 9902 Nursing Doctoral Project 2 Prof. Name Date Literature Search Conducting an exhaustive literature search is imperative for the PICOT question, which centers on the influence of nutritional and telehealth interventions on lung functioning and readmission rates in COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) patients within a 2 to 3-month timeframe. A thorough literature review allows healthcare professionals and researchers to comprehend existing evidence, identifying knowledge gaps in this domain. By scrutinizing published studies, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses, one can evaluate the efficacy of nutritional and telehealth interventions, their potential advantages, and possible adverse effects. A comprehensive literature search aids in bridging the gap between research and practice, ensuring healthcare interventions are grounded in the best available evidence (Al-Moamary et al., 2021).   Literature Search Strategy A systematic approach was utilized to conduct an extensive literature search for the specified PICOT question. The search strategy incorporated relevant terms and Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) pertaining to COPD, nutritional interventions, telehealth interventions, lung functioning, and readmission. Databases such as PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, and the Cochrane Library were explored, and manual searches were conducted by reviewing reference lists of pertinent articles, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses. Following the initial search, 500 articles were retrieved. The inclusion of articles was determined by assessing the relevance of titles and abstracts to the PICOT question. This screening process narrowed down the included articles to 50, which underwent a full-text assessment for eligibility based on predetermined criteria (Ko et al., 2019). After the full-text assessment, a final selection of 20 articles was made based on their adherence to inclusion criteria. These chosen articles, including randomized controlled trials (RCTs), systematic reviews, and meta-analyses, contributed to a comprehensive analysis of available evidence. Employing this systematic literature search strategy ensured a rigorous approach to identifying relevant studies while minimizing bias. The final selection of 20 articles formed a robust evidence base to effectively address the PICOT question. The literature search strategy employed Boolean operators, combining terms such as “COPD AND nutritional interventions,” “COPD AND telehealth interventions,” “COPD AND lung functioning,” and “COPD AND readmission.” Using AND operators narrowed the search results, while OR operators broadened it. This systematic approach facilitated the retrieval of relevant articles, enabling a comprehensive analysis of the available evidence. This thorough literature review enhances understanding of the efficacy of nutritional and telehealth interventions in improving lung function and reducing readmission rates in COPD patients, guiding future clinical decisions and improving patient outcomes (Burton et al., 2022). Analysis of Evidence Critical appraisal was emphasized as a crucial step in evaluating the value of the 20 studies in clinical practice. Each study underwent meticulous examination to ascertain its evidence level, scrutinize the robustness of its methodology, and evaluate its potential applicability in real-world settings. By employing explicit and relevant criteria, the aim was to identify studies offering valuable insights with the potential to enhance patient outcomes. Subsequent stages of critical appraisal, namely evaluation and synthesis, delved into the collective findings of these studies, determining their overall impact on clinical practice. Through this comprehensive appraisal process, evidence that informed and enriched healthcare decision-making in COPD management was carefully selected and synthesized (Gaveikaite et al., 2019). The analysis of the selected 20 articles encompassed a comprehensive assessment of various aspects. Articles were classified based on their nature, such as peer-reviewed, clinical guidelines, or best practice guidelines, to ascertain the level of evidence they provided. Each article’s aim, hypothesis, or research question underwent meticulous scrutiny to understand the study’s primary focus clearly. The research variables and data analysis techniques employed were thoroughly assessed to evaluate the validity and reliability of the studies. Critical appraisal of the evidence was conducted using appropriate tools, including the Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy (SORT), to assess the quality and strength of the evidence. Notable quotes from the articles were also extracted to highlight key insights and perspectives, enriching the appraisal process (Gaveikaite et al., 2019). Organization of Literature According to the Main Themes The selection of five main themes—Telehealth and Telemedicine in COPD Management, Digital Tools and COPD Management, COPD Self-Management and Rehabilitation, Personalized Medicine and COPD, and Readmission Rates and Healthcare Disparities in COPD—provides a structured approach to organizing the evidence and literature from the 20 selected articles. Categorizing articles into these themes facilitates the identification of commonalities and differences in research questions, methodologies, and findings across studies. Analyzing the evidence based on these themes aids in identifying trends, emerging interventions, and potential areas for future research in COPD management (Janjua et al., 2021). Conclusion Conducting a comprehensive literature search using a well-defined strategy is vital for addressing the PICOT format question focused on the impact of nutritional and telehealth interventions on lung functioning and readmission rates in COPD patients within 2 to 3 months. By employing the suggested search terms, utilizing relevant databases, and conducting hand searches, researchers can ensure a thorough exploration of the available evidence. A comprehensive literature search enables evidence-based decision-making and improves COPD management and patient outcomes. References Al-Moamary, M. S., Köktūrk, N., Idrees, M.

NURS FPX 9902 Assessment 3 Literature Synthesis

NURS FPX 9902 Assessment 3 Literature Synthesis Name Capella university NURS-FPX 9902 Nursing Doctoral Project 2 Prof. Name Date Literature Synthesis This assessment provides detailed insights into the doctoral student’s search strategy and methods employed to locate literature for synthesis. Its primary goal is to facilitate the synthesis of literature discovered during the research process. The doctoral learner will comprehensively outline the process used to identify literature sources, elucidate the interrelations among these sources, and discern commonalities and differences in research questions, methodologies, and findings. Search Strategy The development of a literature search strategy is crucial for the success of a doctoral project. The references obtained offer evidence-based support to define patient problems and suggest improvements in quality. The literature search commenced after identifying a patient-related problem at the project site and formulating a PICOT question for caregivers of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) patients. The project site and Capella Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved this PICOT and quality improvement project. Four databases, including Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health (CINAHL), Nursing and Allied Health, PubMed, and the Capella Library, were utilized for evidence gathering. The search initially focused on “COPD readmission,” narrowing down results to peer-reviewed articles within the last five years. Fifteen articles meeting the search criteria were selected, printed, and assessed according to the hierarchy of evidence. Subsequently, each database was individually utilized for literature searches, such as “COPD Readmissions” and the “teach-back method.” Articles meeting criteria were retained and used in the project and synthesis. The overall literature search process involved careful consideration of relevance, publication date, and hierarchy of evidence. A total of 1,500 articles were assessed, resulting in 15 retained for the project, supporting the PICOT question and intervention. Synthesis of the Literature COPD Readmissions COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease with a global impact on mortality. Initiatives like the Learn More Breath Better campaign by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) aim to reduce hospitalizations. The Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) addresses financial implications. Studies, including randomized control trials, cohort studies, and systematic reviews, explore strategies such as personalized action plans, telephonic consultations, and predictive modeling to decrease COPD readmissions. Self-Care Risk factors, including smoking and environmental influences, contribute to COPD. Screening for socioeconomic issues is crucial, aligning with guidelines for controlled COPD and acute exacerbations. Education focusing on smoking cessation, symptom management, and proper inhaler use is essential. Systematic reviews and randomized control trials emphasize tailoring education strategies to individual needs, including multiple evidence-based approaches. Teach-Back Method The teach-back method emerges as a pivotal tool for educating COPD patients, promoting self-management skills, and reducing readmissions. Studies advocate for training healthcare professionals as educators, emphasizing the importance of assessing patient readiness to learn. Electronic learning, national action plans, and healthcare provider training contribute to a comprehensive approach to education delivery. The teach-back method proves effective in enhancing patient knowledge and decreasing hospitalizations. Conclusion The literature synthesis uniformly supports the efficacy of the teach-back method in improving COPD patient outcomes. Quality improvement projects incorporating this method show positive results in patient knowledge, self-management, health literacy, and overall well-being, thereby contributing to the reduction of COPD readmissions. The multifaceted approach to education, including various learning styles and delivery methods, ensures a comprehensive and effective strategy for enhancing patient care.
