Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Final Capstone Paper
Make all necessary revisions and corrections to previous assignments completed in Topics 1- 7. Combine all elements into one cohesive evidence-based proposal.
Although recommendations will vary in length depending upon the problem or issue addressed, the paper must be between 2,500-2,750 words and formatted in APA style. The title page, appendixes, and references are not included in the word limit. The final paper should clearly describe the methods used to identify and retrieve the evidence as well as the rationale for exploring the clinical issue chosen. Clearly articulated recommendations for practice based on research evidence are essential to a successful paper.
Use section headings for each section component and address responses in narrative form. Sections of the final paper must include all of the components written to date (incorporating revisions), as well as the remaining sections. These sections include:
Problem or Issue
Appendices (i.e., Literature Evaluation Table)
The final capstone project paper requires that you support your position by referencing at least nine scholarly resources. At least six of your supporting references must be from peer-reviewed resources.
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 10-15 slides that covers all major sections of your final capstone project paper. For the presentation of your PowerPoint, use Loom to create a voice-over or a video. Refer to the study materials for additional guidance on recording your presentation with Loom. In your PowerPoint presentation, include a cover slide with the Loom link at the beginning, and an additional slide for References at the end.
The PowerPoint presentation should cover all major sections referenced in your Benchmark-Final Capstone Project Paper. In addition, include a slide that summarizes plans for disseminating evidence. Include the following:
Professional organizations, conferences, journals, or employers you would present your findings to.
One professional publication or conference in your dissemination plan and explain why you chose this professional venue over others.
Include slide notes in which you annotate the explanation of the information in each slide.
