PREPARING THE PAPER
You will develop a summary that you could use within an evidence-based practice (EBP) committee or related venue to share with your colleagues.

Discuss the Summerville issue about the bicycle-safety ( children not wearing helmets)

Search the literature and evidence-based practice websites and databases to find a recent clinical practice guideline (no more than 5 years) related to the issue you select. The course Webliography provides websites where you can find clinical practice guidelines, but there are many others available in specialty-organization websites. A good place to start is
Analyze and critique the guidelines and complete the Clinical Practice Guideline Summary Sheet in Doc Sharing. Components include
o scope and purpose of the clinical practice guidelines;
o stakeholder involvement;
o rigor of development;
o recommendations; and
o application.

Attach a .pdf file of the Clinical Practice Guidelines with your handout. If you attach the CPG late, you will receive a late-paper deduction.

Note: The worksheet is to assist you in setting up your paper so you will be sure to address those topics in your paper in addition to other information to meet the criteria for this assignment. Your paper should be in APA 6th ed format. Do not copy and paste the worksheet into your paper.

The summary sheet is amended from the AGREE instrument on page 197 of Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt (2011). Your summary should be approximately 56 pages long.
