The purpose of creating a matrix of a research article is to help you organize your thoughts and to get you started with the process of critique.


Locate a minimum of 3primary researcharticles in response to your PICO(T) question. Upload your primary research articles as full text documents with your assignment. Please do not upload library links.

Using the sameMatrix Template (Word)(Links to an external site.)you used for Group Discussion 2.2, fill in the matrix using the research articles you found for your PICO question.

The matrix is much like a comprehensive note card that should contain the basic information of the research.

You are creating a shortcut version of the key elements of the article for your future use in synthesizing the literature.

This teacher grades very strictly on the rubric, if its in the rubric and not covered on the paper, its points deductions. very important. Its brief reviews of the articles as you can view in the example matrix I have attached. The format is APA (only apa formatting is the article citation above the matrix, thats its! no other APA needed. This assignment is for 3 matrices on the 3 articles I have attached, all 3 are to be on the same document per the instructor. Thank you for your time and this assignment is crucially important.

    Variable and key concepts
    · List the important points of the article, variables, framework, and concepts mentioned.
Interdisciplinary mobility protocol, intensive care, ICU mobility scale scores, ABCDEF components
Variables: ABCDEF components, interdisciplinary mobility protocol, mobility scale scores
Framework: Impact of an interdisciplinary mobility protocol performed in specialty intensive care units which implemented certain other bundle components previously.
· Were hypothesis stated or implied?
The implementation of interdisciplinary mobility protocol in intensive care units are useful in ensuring quality treatment for patients in intensive care units.
· What was the research question? Was it clearly stated?
Does implementation of AACCE mobility care in the intensive care units decrease the length of stay, increase the mobility level and decrease complications?
The research question was not clearly mentioned in the article.
    · Who were the participants
Patients admitted in the intensive care units of the hospital.
· How many? What it enough?
The study was conducted in two phases. Phase I had 1266 patients before implementation and 1420 after implementation. Phase II had 258 before and 1681 patients after implementing the protocol.
The sample size was enough for the study.
· How were participants gathered (sampling plan)
The patients included in the study were those admitted in the ICU and the data was collected from the concerned nurse, physician etc.
· Did any drop out? Why?
No participant dropped out of the study.
    Design and Method
    · How was the research designed?
It was a retrospective qualitative study in which the data was collected from the patients admitted to the ICU.
· Quantitative? Qualitative, mixed?
Qualitative study
· What it appropriate to answer the question?
The design and method were appropriate to answer the research question accordingly.
    Instruments/Data Collection
    · What data was collected?
The patient’s progress with regard to their mobility levels during the therapy was collected.
· Was the data sufficient?
The data was directly collected from the people who were in direct care contact with the patient such as the nurse and physician. Hence, this data was sufficient.
· What instrument was used? Survey? Interview? Questionnaire?
The Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale (RASS) and the Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU) were used in the study.
· Was the instrument valid?
Both the instruments are valid in the ABCDEF bundle.
    · What were the results?
There was appropriate increase in the mobility levels of the patients both in Phase I and Phase II.
· Is it what you expected?
Yes, a positive outcome was expected from the implementation of the interdisciplinary mobility protocol.
· Does it make sense?
Yes, it gives proper co
elation between the implementation and outcomes obtained.
    Strengths & Limitations
· What were the strengths of the study?
The application of individualized AACN criteria for each of the ICUs have given appropriate outcomes.
Monitoring parameters were not clumsy, but clear to the nurses and physicians.
· Did it show a statistical difference? Was it supported?
There were no statistical difference executed in this study.
As the data was collected retrospectively, the chances of missing few data was high.
Chances of inaccuracy.
After the first 2 moths of Phase...
