Use the University Library to locate peer-reviewed research articles related to a research study about health or health care issues, concerns, or trends.
The research article must describe a research study, not an editorial or brief.
The research study must be based in the United States from 2010 to the present.
It is recommended that you select health topics of interest to you or your job, with no complex statistical analyses.
Review the Researching Articles in the University Library Tutorial for help finding articles.
Select at least 3 peer-reviewed* articles to use to complete an annotated bibliography. The 3 research articles can be based on the same or different topics. Topic ideas can include (but are not limited to):
Adolescent obesity (select different geographic locales: urban vs rural)
Infection rates among ICU patients
Readmission rates for congestive heart failure patients
Patient satisfaction or patient experience of care
Population health management in diabetes care
Care coordination or care continuum
Patient safety or quality management
Cancer screening compliance, such as mammography, colonoscopy, or Pap smear
Complete the annotated bibliography based on the 3 articles you selected from the University Library.
Review the sample annotated bibliography provided by the University Library. Be sure to do the following for each bibliography:
Summarize the research study in your own words (at least 150 words).
Include the major areas of the research study, such as the sample, geographic location, and the outcome.
Bibliographies should not include any direct quotes or in-text citation.
*Note: One research article will be used in the Week 3 Learning Team assignment, Components of a Research Study.
Format your assignment according to APA guidelines. Remember to alphabetize your annotated bibliography.
