In 18 month old children, does receiving the MMR vaccine increase the risk of developing autism?

In 18 month old children, does receiving the MMR vaccine increase the risk of developing autism?

Question description

This project is to be done in a group to develop an evidence based research project, based on an approved PICO question. Utilizing the PICO question, evaluate the evidence that supports the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of this intervention for this individual patient’s needs and preferences. The hierarchy of evidence must be used to support the strength of evidence for your intervention. Based on the evidence, a clinical decision must be made. Students will be assigned to a group at the beginning of the semester. Refer to grading rubric below. The project will be discussed throughout the semester. Poster Presentations will be at the end of the semester and will be evaluated according to the presentation grading rubric provided by your professor

Case Study: Ms. Smith has been asked to schedule an appointment for her baby’s 18 month needle (MMR). She is very concerned about this as she has heard reports that the MMR needle causes autism. She asks you whether or not there is a link between the MMR vaccine and an increased risk of autism in children?
P – 18 month old child
I – MMR vaccine
C – no MMR vaccine
O – autism / autistic spectrum disorder

Evidence Based Practice Project

Purposes:

1. To critically appraise nursing research that supports nursing practice.

2. To provide the opportunity to use group process skills to identify and investigate the empirical practice of clinical problem.

3. To integrate research findings into evidence-based practice.

4. To utilize teaching-learning principles in the presentation of this empirical data to classmates and other nursing colleagues.

As nurses, the ability to critically appraise and disseminate information is necessary to assure nursing practice that is scientifically sound.

General Guidelines

1. Students will work in groups.

2. Identify a patient that has been cared for in a clinical setting. Do not provide any identifying information.

3. Focus on a clinical problem this person has, e.g., hypertension, dyspnea, etc.

4. Identify a proposed nursing intervention for this problem for this individual patient.

5. Using a PICO question, evaluate the evidence that supports the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of this intervention for this individual patient’s needs and preferences.

6. The Hierarchy of Evidence must be used to support the strength of evidence for your intervention.

7. Based on the evidence, what clinical decision should be made?

8. Grades will be assigned according to the Evidence-Based Project Evaluation Criteria.

9. Presentations will include the components listed in the Evidence-Based Project Evaluation Criteria.

10. Students are expected to work collaboratively and as a team with each other. Each student will complete peer evaluations for the other members in their group. Individual grades for this portion of the overall grade will be the average of the ratings given by the other group members
