MODULE 6

Homework is due on Friday 
Pls follow prompts and answer questions accordingly
Pls, state the rationale for your claims for every question.
  
Purpose:  Summarize and appraise an article (Diet for hypertension) for bias and validity in a collaborative environment.
All answers should be done under each question segment.
Instructions: Carefully read, summarize, and appraise your group’s assigned article (DIET FOR HYPERTENSION). Be sure to state a rationale for your claims. 
1. Identify and discuss the broader importance of the topic of the study as it applies to patients and organizations. (Importance of the topic:  An outside source that explains why we care about these particular outcomes.  INCLUDE A LINK TO YOUR SOURCE!!!)
2. Discuss the nursing implications of the findings of the research.  Consider the following questions:
· Were the results statistically significant, if reported? (Statistical significance:  Are the results reported w/ p-values?  Can we be sure that statistical signficance (therefore, generalization to the population) can be accomplished?
· What is the clinical significance of the findings? (Clinical significance:  the impact on patient outcomes.  Was the mean difference pre-post or between experimental and control groups large enough for us to say this intervention really made a difference?
· What are the risks vs. benefits to practice of the findings?  (Risk vs. benefits:  What are the benefits to patients of the intervention?  Think about potential risks…this is really a critical thinking exercise here, as most nursing interventions do not have a lot of risk associated with them). 
· Are the findings feasible to implement? (Feasibility:  Ease of implementation, costs of implementation, etc).
  
All documents needed have been attached and do not forget to attach the PDF of the outside source you used.
