Research and Advanced Practice
Nursing
Start by reading the article by DiCenso (2003) to set the
foundation for our consideration of evidence-based nursing.
Even though this article is 10 years old, the information is
seminal to our discussions. Next, read the Decision Support
Synthesis Overview document (Dicenso, Martin-Misener,
Bryant-Lukosius, Bourgeault, Kilpatrick, Donald,
Charbonneau-Smith, (2010). You may wish to scan the full
report (Dicenso & Bryant-Lukosius, 2010) for details on any
pertinent points of interest from the overview document.
The two articles related to the Decision Support Synthesis
work are also included in an upcoming unit of your MN800
course, so you will be able to see how closely research is tied
to every aspect of advanced nursing practice. Next read at
rticle‘6y’Gerrish, et at (2012). a ‘conclusions can you
draw from these resources regarding the role of research in
advanced practice nursing? What gaps persist in knowledge
about the various ANP roles? How can research support
advanced nursing practice in your area?
Evidence-Based Nursing
P actice
Search for a research article that focuses on an aspect of
patient care or a clinical issue that was researched and
written by advanced practice nurse(s). Does the research fit
the definition of EBP as defined by DiCenso and colleagues
(2003)? Why or why not? Provide your rationale. What can
you take from the research to apply to your area of practice‘?
