Develop an EBP question guided by the Question Development Tool Appendix B in the Dearholt and Dang (2017) text.
In older adults with subdural hematomas does surgical intervention resulted in better quality of life and
decreased mortality compared to conservative management?
Next, using this question, conduct a literature search to investigate the issue or problem. Gather a minimum of 3
primary research study articles (NOT literature review, systematic reviews or meta-analysis studies) to address
the practice question. A primary research study includes collection of either qualitative or quantitative data.
