(Answered) NR501NP Week 5: Annotated Bibliography


NR501NP Theoretical Basis for Advanced Nursing Practice


Description of the Assignment

An annotated bibliography is an alphabetical list of information sources (such as journal articles), formatted like a bibliography or a reference list, accompanied by a commentary, or annotation, for each source. The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to learn about a topic through a critical review of literature and encourage a deeper engagement with literature to develop analytical skills.

This assignment presents a method for examining several theories important and useful to the nurse practitioner role.

Preparing the Assignment

  1. For this assignment, you will use the five theories/models listed below:
    • Health Belief Model
    • Transtheoretical Model of Behavioral Change
    • Social Cognitive Theory
    • Family Systems Theory
    • Family Assessment and Intervention Model
  2. Search the library for literature. Locate one article related to each selected theory or model.
    • Use only scholarly sources as defined for the NP program: A US-based peer-reviewed journal for clinicians (MD/DO/NP/PA) published in the past five years or the latest clinical practice guideline (CPG).
  3. Prepare an annotated entry for each source. Begin with the full APA citation of the source, followed by 2-3 paragraphs:
    • Summarize the article.
    • Describe how the article relates to the chosen theory/model.
    • Reflect on how the article could (or could not) be relevant to future Nurse Practitioner practice.


Annotated Bibliography

de Freitas, P. P., de Menezes, M. C., Dos Santos, L. C., Pimenta, A. M., Ferreira, A. V. M., & Lopes, A. C. S. (2020). The transtheoretical model is an effective weight management intervention: A randomized controlled trial. BMC Public Health20(1), 1-12. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12889-020-08796-1

In a 6-month randomized controlled trial (RCT) conducted in Brazilian Public Health Center (PHC), de Freitas et al. (2020) sought to evaluate the effect of the transtheoretical model (TTM)-based intervention for weight management. The study participants included 86 (intervention n=51, control n-35) 20+-year-old women with overweight or obese and are PHC serve users. The intervention group received TTM-based individual health counseling plus usual care while the control group received usual care targeted at achieving weight loss. The study’s outcome measures include food and nutrient and anthropometric profiles.

The article is related to TTM as it used the stages of change (SOC) and process of change (POC) elements to implement its intervention. The POCs used in the pre-contemplation stage included conscious raising, dramatic relief, and environment reassessment. The POCs in the contemplation stage included those used in the pre-contemplation stage plus self-reevaluation. POCs used in the preparation stage include self-reevaluation, social liberation, and self-liberation. POCs used in the action stage included self-liberation, contingency management, social liberation, conterconditioning, and stimulus control. POCs used in the maintenance stage included contingency management, social liberation, counterconditioning, and stimulus control……..please click the icon below to purchase full answer at $15
