 This assignment is the first step in preparing the background section of the innovation project proposal. Develop a search strategy that will find key articles summarizing  what is known about the problem and what solutions have been tried in the past. Search broadly for relevant articles, looking in nursing, medical, technology,  communication, and behavioral science and social science databases. 

Prepare a matrix  of five articles which demonstrate literature appropriate to the background section of  the proposal. This assignment is not a synthesis of all read materials, but is a matrix of important articles that demonstrate thinking broadly and encompasses the main  points of paper. A separate paper, outlining the assignment process, should be typed in APA format including the tone and use of language discussed in the APA manual. It should include separate subsectionsfor the description of search criteria used, keywords selected for  the search and why chosen, database(s) selected to conduct the search and why chosen,  the matrix of 5 articles broken down. The matrix should be attached in the body of the  paper, after the reference page and not as a separate submission. It should conclude  with a summary discussing why these articles where chosen. 

In the attachment below, there is sample matrix table & blank , look at sample and use the blank one.

 Topic : use of Reset o mobile in the prevalence of depression among adolescents in the American society

Note: The  5 articles used in the mobile apps Reference should be arranged in matrix and explain why you use them.

Physician Group Face-to-face semistructured interviews RN and RPN Groups Focused groups N-Viso was used to manage the data. Used open coding = concepts and categories were identified and their properties and dimensions were discovered in the data. Used descriptive analysis tech. to examine the focus group data.

General participants felt pain management in LTC is problematic. Close link between treatment of pain to assessment of pain. Major Themes: Lack of Awareness of Residents’ Pain

– Pain assessment complicated by negative myths about pain and aging.

– Residents’ with dementia at greater risk of not having pain assessed.

– Some assure the absent of pain report equals absent of pain.

Uncertainty About


– Good number of participants

– Identifies facilitator and barriers

Weaknesses – No discussion of

the make-up of the group, however the names used in the text show that men and women with multiple pain causing illnesses made up the sample.

– No discussion on how themes were identified and no discussion on the coding methodology.

7 with a min of 5 and max of 10. Theoretical sampling used – data gathered was driven by the concepts derived from the evolving theory. RN Group 53% older than 46 yrs, 96% female, and 27% worked in LTC for more than 10 yrs. RPN Group 74% older than 46 yrs, 97% female and 64% worked in LTC for more than 10 yrs. Physician Group Mean age was 52 yrs, 67% male and

the Accuracy of Pain Assessment andà Diagnosis

– Question accuracy of pain diagnosis

– Impact of dementia on pain assessment accuracy concern of both groups

– Unsure of the cause of resident behaviors during assessment, is behavior pain related or some other underlying cause, usually treating cause as something other than pain.

Reluctance of Heath Care Providers to Use Opioids

– Only

(Cont. with Themes) Working to Individualize Pain Treatment

– If the physician has little trust or respect for the nurse’s clinical skills and decision-making ability, the physician was more reluctant to prescribe pain medications other than acetaminophen.



TLC nurses – Conflict

among providers

– Lack of continuity of care across shifts/settings

– Lack of research in the area of pain management in LTC

– Poor knowledge transfer to providers who work in LTC

Facilitators à – Knowledge

for all providers around pain management

– Good com- munication with patients, family and other providers
