The Research to Practice column is intended to improve the research critique skills of the advanced practice registered nurse and the emergency nurse, and to assist with the translation of research into practice. For each column, a topic and a research study are selected. The stage is set with a case presentation. The research article is then reviewed and critiqued, and the findings are discussed in relation to the case presented. In the current column, we examine the findings of A. Agit et al. (2018) from their article titled “An Iceberg Phenomenon in Dementia: Pain.”
