Quantitative Article Critique (Fall)

Quantitative Article Critique
Purpose
The purpose of this discussion is for you to demonstrate an understanding and ability to search the library for quantitative research related to the practice problem. Use the focus of the Global Burden of Disease and National Practice Problems to guide your search for a quantitative article. From what you have learned from the Explore section choose a quantitative research article about one of the National Practice Problems. These eight National Practice Problems include: COPD, mental illness, addiction, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and safety. You will successfully demonstrate your library search skills to identify evidence.
Instructions
