Now that you have selected a topic for your memo, find one peer-reviewed article where an intervention has been tested with your population. Note that you are looking for an intervention that is tested with your population NOT an article that is only describing your population.
Formulate a discussion post that describes your article. Include:
- A brief description of the sample that the researcher used;
- A description of how the researcher tested the intervention;
- Identify limitations or concerns with the research study; and
- An assessment of whether this intervention should be used with your population.
Utilize the other students working on your topic to share articles. By doing so, you are helping each other build a reference list for your memo. Try to avoid posting the same articles if possible.
Post your article under the discussion post heading for your topic. Respond to at least two of your peer posts and compare your research article’s findings to their article’s findings: which has more evidence for a social worker to use in practice?
Q: Where can I find an article?
Q: What counts as an intervention?
Q: What does not count as an article testing an intervention?
Q: How can I tell if the research article says something that is valid?
Q: Someone already posted my article. Do I have to start over?
