Literature Review

Literature Review

A literature review aims to highlight the current state of knowledge regarding a topic under study. Literature reviews are comprised of secondary sources and as such do not report any new or original experimental work. The main purpose of a literature review is to situate the current study within the body of literature and to provide context for the reader. A literature review is not a summary but a synthesis of the material you have read. In this course the purpose of the literature review is to answer a significant clinical question. Instructions:Your review needs to follow the following criteria:

  1. Choose a problem faced by clients in your practice area that you think is important and would like to learn more about.
  2. Use your knowledge of PICO to develop a well-build narrow clinical question. For example: In adult patients with total hip replacements (P), how effective is pain medication (I) compared to aerobic stretching (C) in controlling post-operative pain (O)? (the development of the PICO question should not be including in the review).
  3. Write a five (5) page literature review on the standing knowledge of the chosen question.
  4. Include a minimum of five (5) journal articles, at least three (3) from nursing journals. However, make sure that the (5) journals are the one’s analyzed and synthesized in the results and discussion sections.
  5. The body of the review should be made of the following titled sections: Title (introduction), Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion.
  6. Provide a specific and concise tentative title for your literature review (You may use the results or at least the variables in the title).
  7. Abstract is not required
  8. Include a 1-page introduction of your topic (background information), the focus/aim of your review. The introduction should include a statement of the problem, briefly explain the significance of your topic study, and act to introduce the reader to your definitions and background. Must include your main statement (i.e. the purpose of this review is…{PICO Question}).
  9. The method section should include sources, databases, keywords, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and other information that establish credibility to your review.
  10. The results should summarize the findings of studies that have been conducted on your topic. For each study you should briefly explain its purpose, procedure for data collection and major findings. This is the section where you will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of studies.
  11. The discussion should be like a conclusion portion. It serves as a summary of the body of your literature review and should highlight the most important findings. Your analysis should help you to draw conclusions. In this section you would discussion any consensus or disagreement on the topic. It can also include any strengths and weaknesses in general of the research area. If you believe there is more to research, you may include that here.
  12. Finally, you will need to conclude. At this point you have put substantial effort into your review. Close this chapter with a summary, major findings and any major recommendation for the profession.
  13. In general, your review should show a sense of direction and contain a definite central idea supported with evidence. The writing should be logical, and the ideas should be linked together in a logical sequence. The ideas need to be put together clearly to the writer and to the reader.
  14. Please take time to review the rubric so that you are aware of the expectations for the review.
  15. Format references and citations using APA guidelines.
