Appraisal of Evidence
'Skin tolerance and effectiveness of two hand decontamination procedures in everyday hospital use'
M. Winnefeld, M.A. Richard, M. Drancourt, J.J. Grob 2000
British Journal of Dermatology 143 546-550
For this assignment I am going to appraise an article from the British Journal of Dermatology, 2000, 143, 546-550. To locate this piece of research it was important to adhere to a focused search strategy. Due to the huge amount of research available today, in books, journals and online databases, it is simply not feasible to look through everything to discover a piece directly relevant to you (Flemming 1999). To retrieve information that is related, it helps to develop a focused question. The PICO framework devised by Sackett et al (1997) is useful in helping you to do this (cited by Craig and Smyth 2002). It helps you to focus on specifics, the population you want to look at, the intervention, a comparison intervention should there be one, and finally the outcomes of the research. For instance, you know you want to look into the area of infection control and this framework helps you to create a focus surrounding this.
