Evidence based fact sheet (folate)
Demonstrate how to locate, interpret, evaluate and use professional literature to make ethical evidence-based practice decisions.
Use current information technologies to locate and apply evidence-based guidelines and protocols, such as the AND Evidence Analysis Library, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, National Guideline Clearinghouse Web sites.
Demonstrate effective and professional written communication and documentation and use of current information technologies when communicating with others.
Over the course of this semester, you will have an opportunity to create an evidenced-based factsheet examining the relationship between FOLATE and a specific disease/health outcome (e.g., cold development, energy, hypertension, hair growth, osteoporosis, etc.).
You must have a minimum of five good references for each factsheet. “Good” means the references are from peer-reviewed journals and evidence-based guidelines, such as those available at the websites listed below. This means that your five “good” references should NOT come from textbooks or non-peer-reviewed Internet websites/magazines. All types of research articles (such as review articles, meta-analyses, randomized controlled trials, epidemiological studies, cohort studies, etc.) are acceptable references as long as they are from peer-reviewed sources.
