My Classmates Response below:

For this week’s discussion, I researched advanced care practitioners and palliative care.As of right now I am in critical care, however hospice and palliative care are my passion.Once I am done with the NP program I hope to work in this area.I started my search in the Walden library using the terms ‘nurse practitioner’ and ‘pain’.I received zero results for this search.I then used ‘advance practitioner’ and palliative care’ and received 97 results using this search format.I used the Medline with Full Text data base and checked the box that said peer-review to find an article per this week’s assignment.

Research Experience

The only difficulty I experienced was the lack of results based on my first search terms.I found it interesting that after I changed from Nurse practitioner to advanced practitioner, I received an article that said Nurse Practitioner.One strategy that I used was to think of different names a Nurse Practitioner could be called. In this case, it helped me to find an article that I needed.I do believe that Medline would be beneficial to my colleagues.This database is a well-known and is easy to use and again I would recommend it for research.

Article Evaluation

Evaluating the article was rather easy due to the well written nature of the research.The title of the article allows the reader to understand that they will be reading about nurse practitioner and patients with metastatic pain.The article does discuss pain issues with cancer and how nurse practitioners can help alleviate pain through early intervention.There was no bias or opinions that I could see that could have interfered with the study.There was a great amount of evidenced provided with a detailed analysis of the research process and positive outcomes.Key words such as ‘advanced practitioners’ were not within the study but other keywords were. Overall, I think this is a solid and well written research study.
