Abstract: Critical analysis of research has become a necessary task for nurses who intend to improve the quality of the care they provide by applying robust research evidence to clinical practice. The aims of the present paper are a) to discuss the various stage of critiquing research and b) to illustrate a case example of research critique by discussing a qualitative research paper. A systematic critique of a grounded theory research article, entitled “How Greek nurses perceive and overcome the barriers in implementing treatment for pressure ulcers- ‘Against the odds’”, was performed, using a framework that involves all stages needed in critiquing qualitative research. This framework was chosen because it provides specific guidelines and involves a detailed analysis of how each stage of the research must be accomplished. This critique process led to the development of an educational guide for students and novice researchers, illustrating the methodological approach and the skills needed for conducting a critical analysis of a published qualitative research study. This paper provides the necessary knowledge to nurse students about how to critique a published research paper and appraise research evidence that guides clinical practice and decision-making for the nursing care delivered.
