Week 2 – Discussion 2

 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Evidence   Based Medicine

A knowledge based clinical decision support system contains the rules and associations of compiled data. The knowledge base is derived through a process of translational research in which knowledge from scientific discoveries is translated into clinical applications. This evidence based knowledge is then converted into a format understandable by computers. One such knowledge base is PubMed Central.  PubMed Central (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM).

  • Explore this resource using the      search term “Evidence based medicine in health care”.
  • Find two articles that interest      you that were published within the last two years. Summarize these      articles in your discussion post.
  • Explore the PubMed Central      website .  Identify a minimum of two other resources from the site      that would be beneficial in your future career .

Guided response: Your initial post should be a minimum of 200-250 words.

  • Utilize a minimum of two      scholarly sources, excluding the textbook.
  • Sources should be cited in APA      format, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • You must respond to at least      two of your classmate’s posts by Day 7.
  • Your three required posts must      be on three different days of the week.
