Findings from many research articles usually provide support for effectiveness of a given intervention in curbing prevalence of risks resulting from daily human activities. For instance, the article by Davison et al provided suggestions of intervening in the risks associated with bicycling and use of bicycle helmet to reduce bicycling-related injuries, among young Canadians (2013). Although the evidence provided in the article is based on statistical analysis on Canadian youths, it is important to determine if the suggested interventions would be equally effective in another sample in another community (Melnyk 2011). It’s necessary to conduct critical appraisal of both qualitative and quantitative evidence provided in the article to ascertain their reliability, validity, applicability and transferability in another sample in another community.
In order to facilitate sound clinical decision making based on both quantitative and qualitative evidence contained in the article, critical appraisal of the documented information should be conducted (Solomon 2009). The validity and accuracy of the documented information should be determined before recommending its use on another community (Brooker 2007). It is therefore, important to determine the usefulness of the documented information on another community fond of bicycling with or without a helmet. In addition, the approach taken by researchers before reaching their conclusions has to be critically analyzed to determine its dependability and assure another researcher of getting similar results under similar conditions (Solomon 2009). Therefore, it is important for the research findings as well as interpretations to be grounded from the research data. A careful analysis of the article in consideration shows that the suggested interventions can be given consideration during clinical decision making. The information from the article provides support for the effectiveness of an intervention against bicycling-related injuries and it can as well be effective in another sample in another community.
