Summarize these articles using the grading criteria and EBP grid provided. The criteria included are; levels and strengths of evidence, how well the studies were conducted (who, what, where, when, why, how), how well the articles aIDress the PICOT question, and gaps. After appraising research articles and completing the EBP grid, the students will then write a summary of findings, discuss what policies and procedures should be developed, revised, or continued based on what was learned from development of PICOT question and the review of articles. Finally, the students will include individual discussion of application of evidence to own nursing practice.

Problem and Population: Hospitalized, adult patients, ages 18 and older who are in the high risk category for pressure ulcers with BRADEN score of 12 or less requiring frequent repositioning.
Intervention: Repositioning every 4 hours to relieve pressure
Comparison: Repositioning every 2 hours to relieve pressure
Outcome: The incidence of pressure ulcers in the patients who are in high risk category with BRADEN score of 12 or less will remain unchanged.
Timeframe: Duration of hospitalization
Question: In hospitalized adult patients, ages 18 and older, who are in the high risk category for pressure ulcers with Braden scale score of 12 or less requiring frequent repositioning, does repositioning every four hours compared to repositioning every two hours increase the incidence of developing pressure ulcers while hospitalized?
Introductory paragraph: What is the problem? What prompted to explore this topic? approximately one paragraph information about your project right above the PICOT.
Please include everything in the grid and leave everything in the table format
Please write one big paper with PICOT and introductory paragraph/page on the first page followed by the grid in landscaped page which should include required information on all 4 articles reviewed. Rest of the information should be included at the end of your paper followed by a reference page. You can include the content exactly in the order as they appear in the grading rubric.
