When you search for the best research evidence you might want to start by finding already-published evidence-based reviews, guidelines and protocols. These are articles in which the authors have already searched medical databases for the available literature on a medical topic and analyzed it to determine if the evidence supports a specific treatment. Note:systematic reviews, clinical guidelines and meta-analysis are secondary sources.
For your NUR 6020 assignment you must use primary resources but you can use secondary sources such as systematic reviews to identify the important research studies that have been published on your topic.
