Discussion Question (DQ): (3 Possible Points)
Using the guidelines from the online tutorial and the templates on page 31 of your text present a patient centered research question in the PICOT format that you are considering for assignment two.

Discussion Question (DQ): (3 Possible Points
In order to make a practice change there needs to be enough strong evidence. The level of evidence along with the quality of evidence equals its strength. The rating system (box 1.3) on page 12 of the Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt text assigns a level according to the types of evidence obtained. Using the problem you identified in week 1 present a summary of two peer-reviewed research articles using two different levels of evidence. Discuss how you would critically evaluate this evidence according to its validity reliability and applicability in practice.
