Topical Research Project
1. Identify a chief complaint you have observed in the school clinic. (DONE) 2. Search pubmed for three types of articles: one qualitative study, one clinical trial, and one systematic review on the chief complaint. (DONE, I WILL PROVIDE THE 2 ALREADY WRITTEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE 3RD ARTICLE THAT MUST BE SUMMARIZED) 3. Complete the qualitative research worksheet for the qualitative study, the treatment article worksheet for the clinical trial, and the summary research worksheet for the systematic review in order to assess each article for bias and validity. (THE WORKSHEETS ARE ATTACHED) 4. Summarize the three articles, identifying the type of study, the intervention, the outcome tools, and the results. 5. Report on your findings from the checklist. 6. Search the internet for appropriate outcome tools to assess this chief complaint in a clinical setting. Compare the outcome tool you identified to the MYMOP. Describe the strengths and weakness of both outcome tools. 7. Finally, discuss how this information could be applied to the care of a patient with the chief complaint. The project should be no more than 6 pages, including references.
