All answers should be done under each question segment.

Instructions: Carefully read, summarize, and appraise your group’s assigned article (DIET FOR HYPERTENSION). Be sure to state a rationale for your claims. 

1. Identify and discuss the broader importance of the topic of the study as it applies to patients and organizations. (Importance of the topic:  An outside source that explains why we care about these particular outcomes.  INCLUDE A LINK TO YOUR SOURCE!!!)

2. Discuss the nursing implications of the findings of the research.  Consider the following questions:

· Were the results statistically significant, if reported? (Statistical significance:  Are the results reported w/ p-values?  Can we be sure that statistical signficance (therefore, generalization to the population) can be accomplished?

· What is the clinical significance of the findings? (Clinical significance:  the impact on patient outcomes.  Was the mean difference pre-post or between experimental and control groups large enough for us to say this intervention really made a difference?

· What are the risks vs. benefits to practice of the findings?  (Risk vs. benefits:  What are the benefits to patients of the intervention?  Think about potential risks…this is really a critical thinking exercise here, as most nursing interventions do not have a lot of risk associated with them).

· Are the findings feasible to implement? (Feasibility:  Ease of implementation, costs of implementation, etc).
