At the individual level it is recognizing and reflecting on an issue that restricts one’s abilities and experiences, then taking action to change the issue for themselves and others affected (Chinn & Kramer, 2011). The key objective of praxis is through reflection to incorporate theory, practice and art to aid in the recognition and valuing of diverse types of knowledge (Kilpatrick, 2008).

Evidence Based Practice in Adult Nursing The aim of this assignment is to critique a piece of quantitative nursing research, by identifying and commenting on the purpose and relevance of the study, the research design and the methodology employed.

Initially the meaning of critique will be defined and the importance of research critique to nursing will be briefly described. Elements of a recognised framework by Cormack (2000) will be used as a guideline through the critique process.

He highlighted that public health leaders need to be dedicated to tackle difficulty problems, to involve with several stakeholders and to carry out this action in the community, ready for inquiry and open discussion at every period. However, successful leaders must move beyond passion.
