Learning Outcome 1 will be assessed: Identify a clinical problem and generate related question(s) to a field-specific area of nursing that requires investigation.

Learning Outcome 2 will be assessed: Demonstrate knowledge and skills of the systematic steps of literature searching to access the evidence by utilising a range of information technologies.

Learning Outcome 3 will be assessed: Critically evaluate empirical evidence which includes a diverse range of different research designs/approaches, sampling and data collection methods related to a field-specific area of nursing.

Learning Outcome 4 will be assessed: Develop an overall classification system for a summary of the evidence in the integrative literature review.

Learning outcome 5 will be assessed: Demonstrate knowledge of the enhancements and barriers to the implementation of evidenced-based practice in a field-specific area of nursing practice.

§  A integrative literature review in a selected field-specific area of nursing or nursing practice which should

§   include, identification of that area, why it was selected and considered to be a problem area, and

§   generation of related research question(s).

§  Thereafter, a systematic outline of the literature search process should be provided.

§  Following this, there should be an evaluation of the evidence i.e. a diverse range of research studies

§   (quantitative, qualitative and mixed-method) with a succinct systematic outline of their respective methods (study design/approach, sampling method, data collection method(s) and key findings.

§  There is not a specific number of books, articles etc. for students to include BUT students must select

§   and include in the main body of the review 5 primary research studies and

§  each selected study (quantitative and qualitative) should have their methods outlined and critically

§  evaluated in the text following the systematic stages of the research process:

§  Firstly, the primary research study must be referenced and

§  then the students should include information in relation to the type of study design/approach

§  (including Aim and Objectives), the type of sampling method used, the study population recruited for

§   the study (n-?) and the primary related socio-demographic characteristics of the study population outlined.

§  The ethical considerations for the research participants and if an ethical approval was granted for the study

§   should be also described.

§  The data collection method(s) should be also identified and briefly what it/they individually sought to investigate

§  or measure.

§  The type of data analysis and the strategies used to analyse the data as well as the final number of the

§   participants should be also mentioned.

§  The study findings/results should be succinctly outlined as well as the respective methodological strengths and

§  limitations and brief explanations as to why these were strengths or shortcomings

§  Students also need to include other sources to support their point of view and to compare and contrast the

§   results of the primary research studies with other research studies related to their topic using critical

§  analysis and discussion, as this assignment should not be descriptive.

§  Therefore, the key findings of the studies (primary and secondary) should be carefully examined,

§  compared and contrasted in a critical way, which needs to fulfill the main aim and objectives of their review.

§  The role of the nurse, the role of the multi-disciplinary team and the clinical implications of the reviewed

§   findings should be considered in the field-specific area of nursing/healthcare practice selected.

§  The clinical implications of the reviewed findings should be considered in the field-specific area of nursing/

§  healthcare practice selected.

§  Continued gaps in clinical and research knowledge should be identified and linked to suggested, specific

§   directions for future clinical development/innovation and research in the topic area identified

§                                                                                                                                                                                            )
