HLT490 Grand Canyon Cesarean Section Analysis and Appraisal Paper


Grand Canyon University

Question Description

Details: chapters 3 & 4

The final capstone project is a culmination of the written research-based assignments completed throughout the course. Each written assignment contributes to the final Evidenced-Based Proposal paper. This is the second written assignment.

Locate a minimum of 15 peer-reviewed articles that describe the problem or issue and that support the proposed solution. Eight of the 15 articles must be research-based (i.e., a study which is qualitative, quantitative, descriptive, or longitudinal).

The "Table of Evidence" document is a tool you can use to organize information from the study articles you have chosen for your literature review. Use this tool as a guide to ensure you have captured the key information that should be incorporated into your literature review narrative.

Begin your search for literature by utilizing the databases located in the GCU Library. Contact your instructor, the librarian, or library staff for additional researching tips and keyword suggestions.

Preview each of the 15 articles chosen by reading the article abstracts and summaries. Article abstracts and summaries provide a concise description of the topic, research outcomes, and significance of findings.

Analysis and Appraisal

Write an analysis and appraisal (1,500-2,000 words): This section should build and support your case, in the reader's mind, of why your problem, purpose, and proposed solution are valid.

Remember, you are building an argument to prove your case to do this project; this is not simply an article review.

Analyze and appraise the selected articles to support your problem, purpose, and solution. Appraise each article by answering the following questions (one to two sentences is sufficient to answer each question):

  1. How does the article describe the nature of the problem, issue, or deficit you have identified?
  2. Does the article provide statistical information to demonstrate the gravity of the issue, problem, or deficit?
  3. What are some examples of morbidity, mortality, and rate of incidence or rate of occurrence in the general population?
  4. Does the article support your proposed change?

Group the analyses based on the content of the articles and the support each article provides for your project.

Incorporating a Theory

In addition to the review of the literature and theory paper, write a paper of 250-500 words in which you:

  1. Find a theory that will assist you in your implementation or support your solution to your problem.
  2. Describe this theory in simple terms.
  3. Describe why this theory supports your project.
  4. Describe how you will incorporate this theory.

General Requirements:

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide

Is elective labor induction a predisposing factor to unplanned cesarean section?
Cesarean section is a very costly procedure, both financially and health-wise. Millions of dollars
are spent annually by insurance companies on cesarean section. Reducing the incidence of
cesarean sections being done would therefore save our country a lot of money which can be used
for improving other essential health services. In this research, it is thought that elective induction
of labor in gravid women increases the chances of her having a cesarean section done on her.
The major problem in this research study is labor induction’s risk of ending up as a cesarean
section in the theatre (Danilack, V. A., et al, 2016). According to previous researches done and
data that have been collected, there is a relationship between induced labors and prevalence of
cesarean section. Most women who were electively induced into labor developed complications
which required emergency cesarean section as an intervention. I want to make it very clear that
labor induction is not a bad thing. But, labor should only be induced if necessary. There are valid
indications for labor which mainly involves the passage, the passenger and power. The passage is
the pelvis, both the inlet and the outlet. The passenger is the fetus. The power is the uterine
muscle contractions, which involves ‘pushing’ by the pregnant woman. Labor should take a
natural course. The fetus matures, it rotates into an appropriate position, uterine contractions
begin, and the cervix effaces then dilates, the fetus starts descending and maneuvering through
the pelvis with frequent contractions. This process is controlled by natural hormones such as
oxytocin, elastin and prolactin. The positive feedback mechanism between oxytocin and the
posterior pituitary gland enables frequent and powerful muscle contractions. When labor is
induced nat...
