Autumn 2017
Assessment Task 3
Assessment 3 Individual Assignment
Task Description
Using the person-centred health care topic you chose for assessment task 2, write a structured literature review on your topic. Your literature review must address an answerable clinical question using the PICO framework (Patient / Population; Intervention / Issue; Comparison intervention if appropriate; Outcome / Outcomes). This question must be clearly stated within the text of your assignment.
After you have identified your clinical question, search the literature using appropriate databases within the University of Wollongong Library website ( http://uow.libguides.com/nmihdatabases ) and research-based journal articles that relate specifically to your chosen topic (these articles must be available to the marker of this assignment from the University of Wollongong Library). They must be research articles – descriptive literature review articles are not acceptable (Systematic reviews and Meta-analysis are acceptable). You are required to submit a summary of your search strategy as part of this assessment task (not more than 250 words). The full detail of the search strategy is already assessed in assessment task 2; there is no need for details.
Once you have chosen journal articles, write a general critical review of the evidence. This review should include the following components:
a. brief description / summary of evidence;
b. definition of the key terms using appropriate resources
c. critical review of evidence
d. identification of strengths & limitations of evidence
e. indicating the relevance and impact of the findings on the chosen topic
f. identifying the gap

After reviewing the research articles, come to a discussion about your clinical question based on the articles reviewed. Appropriate research resources should also be used to support your discussion. The discussion part must synthesise the findings of all articles that you have reviewed.
You must include a table of critical analysis for the chosen articles at the end of your assignment as an appendix. The critical analysis of each article in the table must have: research design, population and aim, intervention, data collection method, outcome measure, findings, strength and limitation of the study and your own judgement. You can use the sample table from the Moodle site. The word count of the assignment does not include the table.
