Do supplements and complementary alternatives to medicine (CAM) in older adult women influence osteoporosis prevention?


I have attached the articles I used to research the PICO question as well as my annotated bibliographies. I attached the poster template and the project rubric (only poster for this assignment)


Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Poster Presentation


Purpose: To expand the student’s awareness of evidence-based practice in nursing and to encourage the

development of the student’s ability to share information with peers in a professional manner using a

poster presentation.

CONTENT: (55 points)

Step 1: Formulate a well-built question: Include why you chose this problem or patient. Use the acronym

PICO to formulate the question. For example: Is this use of heparin in maintaining patency of an

intermittent intravenous infusion better than saline.

5 Points

P=Identify the Patient or Problem (occlusion of intermittent IV infusion)

I=Intervention (use of heparin)

C=Comparison Intervention (use of saline)

O=Outcome (sustained patency of intermittent IV infusions)

Step 2: Identify and summarize scholarly articles (4) and other evidence-based resources that answer the

question you identified. Review the current literature. You must include nursing journal articles. Articles

should be dated within the past 5 years. Students may also use articles from the past 10 years (if having

difficulty and/or to demonstrate the progression of the research). Students may use both quantitative and

qualitative research articles.

A short summary of each article including title, author, date of publication, research design and method,

and journal should be included on the poster using APA format.

Step 3: Critically appraise and analyze the evidence. Use the format from the annotated bibliography.
