Week 4- Finding Evidence
Evidence that supports a conclusion is part of the research process. Literature reviews often accompany research papers in the form of a summary and synthesis of the published information about the research topic. Although this week’s assignment is not a literature review, it is designed to familiarize you with the practice of finding appropriate sources and information on a topic.
Find three original research articles that apply to your research topic. The articles must be
- peer reviewed,
- recent (published within 5 years), and
- statistically significant.
- independent variable(s),* Students have difficulty with variables, I have added a guide for you under Week 4.
- dependent variable(s),
- methods, and
For each of the articles, determine if the article is suitable for inclusion in a literature review for your research topic.
- If it is not, explain why.
- If it is, explain how the information can be used to inform practice.
Compile all summaries in one document.
Do not include the entire article, but include a link to the article
Include the APA citation for each article before each summary.

My research topic is about obesity and how it affects patient care and outcomes
Based on the sample collected, the outcomes indicate that 13.3% of the Spanish adult population are moderately obese while 3.9% are severely obese (Busutil et al., 2017). An analysis of the five dimensions of the health-related quality of life indicated an increased report about problems with increased BMI. The respondents with an obese BMI reported issues with mobility. The obesity-B category recorded increased self-care activities and pain by 20.2% and 28.4%, respectively. Based on the independent variable of gender, the results show that men are likely to be obese through mobility issues. The study conducted a statistical analysis using Stata 11.0 and SPSS 22 software. The results indicate a probability value of less than 5%, which is considered significant.
