This assessment task will assist critical care nurses to achieve key EBP skills(ask, acquire, appraise and interpret, apply, and evaluate) necessary for integrating best research evidence withclinical expertise and patient values and preferences for safe high quality care. This assessment task will enablethe student to demonstrate their capacity to acquire, appraise and interpret research literature on a clinicalpractice issue and reflect on how the findings from these studies inform the student’s nursing practice. Inaddition, the student will demonstrate their academic writing skills of analysis, synthesis and critique in order todraw conclusions about best evidence to inform clinical practice.Word length: 1500 wordsWeighting: 40%Due date: Friday May 14th 2021 Time:Location:Format:8:00 pmAssignment dropbox on HNN752 CloudDeakin unit sitePDF* or word *PDF conversion software is available here on Deakin Software Catalogue• Please check the document before submitting to the dropbox to ensure the formatting has not changed.• You are responsible for ensuring that the correct version of your assessment task is properly uploaded into thecorrect assessment dropbox.Topic background:Aggression and violence from patients and visitors is a global healthcare concern, with up to 38% of healthcareprofessionals reported to have experienced physical violence over their career1. As nurses within the emergencyand critical care settings, you are likely to be involved in or witness episodes of aggression and violence. Theseunpredictable behaviours may contribute to patient and staff harm and are precipitated by impaired copingskills and communication breakdown associated with substances of abuse, cognitive and mental health issues,and other personal issues experienced by the patient or visitor. Recommendations that equip healthcareprofessionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to de-escalate and prevent unpredictable behaviour21 World Health Organization (2021).

You are required to select five research articles from peerreviewed journals to address one nursing practice issue related to assessing and/or managing patient and visitoraggression and violence within an acute hospital setting. Write an annotated bibliography for each study,followed by an essay that defines the nursing practice issue, provides a synthesis and critique of the overallfindings from the five annotations, and discusses the implications for your clinical practice.Instructions for this assessment task:• The specific nursing practice issue as a central theme for this assessment task needs to be relevant to yourown clinical context.• You may only use primary research to annotate.o Do not use traditional literature reviews, integrative reviews or systematic reviews, as these aresecondary sources or secondary research, and are too difficult to annotate according to theinstructions.o Be cautious about reports on quality improvement initiatives/projects or process evaluation, asextracting information accordingly to annotation instructions may not be possible. Qualityimprovement (QI) projects report on processes undertaken to improve clinical standards, usingmethods such as clinical audit or survey data with descriptive statistics but these reports areoften without a predetermined research question or methods of analysis, therefore thesereports are not primary research. If in doubt about QI (as some articles may have both QI andresearch components), use the discussion board to clarify if is the reference is appropriate touse for this assessment task. Please include in the discussion thread the specific researchquestion of the QI report and its intended method of analysis.o You may find it useful as part of your background reading to seek integrative reviews,systematic reviews or quality improvement projects (when available) to help identify key issuesand themes around aggression and violence in the acute setting. This background work mayhelp scope the breadth and depth of the research within your chosen topic area beforeselecting relevant primary research to support your arguments (i.e. analysis, synthesis andcritique).• No direct quotations should be used in an annotated bibliography.• Write the annotated bibliography allocating approximately 200 words for each research article (total ofapproximately 1000 words).• Use the full reference as the heading of each annotation.3 World Health Organization (2021).

There should be a logical progression of ideas as demonstrated by logically linkedarguments/discussion made in each paragraph.
