With elderly patients 65 to 90, does the use of prophylactic antibiotics , as compared to no use of prophylactic antibiotics , reduce the rate of catheter related blood stream infections , in 6 months?

This assignment is to write a 8-10 page paper that describes an evidence-based research plan for the problem you selected in week 2, wrote a PICO question for in week 4 and for the literature you analyzed in week 5.

1. A 8-10 page paper of content (the 8-10 pages does not include the cover page,or reference list). Please review the rubric for this assignment for the specific points to include. There are very precise guidelines of what sections should be included in the research plan. Here is information on how to write A Review of Literature. NOTE: A review of literature is not copying and pasting your annotated bibliography information, instead it is a synthesis (comparing and contrasting) of all five authors. Here is a video on comparing and contrasting that I use when I write https://youtu.be/2nFXmzhXp-I

For example:

Incorrect:

Smith (2016) interpreted his findings as being applicable to……one paragraph

Fox (2016) used a quasi-experimental approach to identifying his population……one paragraph.

Correct:

On the subject of horizontal violence most researchers have found that very few nurses have been spared some type of abuse (Gray, 2015; Blue, 2014).

Read this sample literature review. It will help you see how to synthesize your literature. I do not expect your paper to be this long, just look at how this student formatted and wrote her review!

2. APA format is required, including a title page, abstract page, introduction, body of the paper, summary, and references that are cited. Please do not forget to space properly throughout the paper, include a running head, page numbers, and page breaks where needed. Use this Evidence-based Research Plan Template to write your paper.

4. The Grading Rubric: A Evidence-based Research Plan can be found here with further description of points to include:

5. Each section should have a heading. Follow the headings on the grading rubric.
