Our research team carried out its work in four phases: (a) identifying intervention studies on SRSD in writing with students with LD or at risk for LD; (b) screening the studies to ensure they met inclusion criteria; (c) development, refinement, and application of a quality indicator
rubric, based on published standards, for evaluating the methodological quality of the studies; and (d) application of published quality indicators
and standards to determine whether the studies were of sufficient quality to deem SRSD an evidence-based practice.
I am hopeful that this research will stimulate additional nursing-sensitive quality indicator
studies in nephrology settings.
