The purpose of this assignment is to write a review of the research articles you evaluated in your Topic 5 “Evidence-Based Practice Project: Evaluation of Literature” assignment. If you have been directed by your instructor to select different articles in order to meet the requirements for a literature review or to better support your evidence-based practice project proposal, complete this step prior to writing your review.

A literature review provides a concise comparison of the literature for the reader and explains how the research demonstrates support for your PICOT. You will use the literature review in this assignment in NUR-590, during which you will write a final paper detailing your evidence-based practice project proposal.

In a paper of 1,250-1,500, select eight of the ten articles you evaluated that demonstrate clear support for your evidence-based practice and complete the following for each article:

  1. Introduction – Describe the clinical issue or problem you are addressing. Present your PICOT statement.
  2. Search methods – Describe your search strategy and the criteria that you used in choosing and searching for your articles.
  3. Synthesis of the literature – For each article, write a paragraph discussing the main components (subjects, methods, key findings) and provide rationale for how the article supports your PICOT.
  4. Comparison of articles – Compare the articles (similarities and differences, themes, methods, conclusions, limitations, controversies).
  5. Suggestions for future research: Based on your analysis of the literature, discuss identified gaps and which areas require further research.
  6. Conclusion – Provide a summary statement of what you found in the literature.
