Review of the Literature and PICOT Assignment

This paper will have an 8-page narrative (8 pages maximum – 5 point deduction for over page limit) plus a title page, abstract page, and reference list. 

You must use a minimum of four original research articles for your paper.

The purpose is to write a review of the literature on to answer your PICOT question using original research evidence. Discuss how this health problem is applicable in both the United States and a non-USA country, and appraise four original research studies on this topic.

This is a scholarly paper, written as if it was a “Review of the Literature” article published in a nursing journal. Select articles published within the past five years (2014 to present). Do not use a non-peer review journal. Do not use a literature review article or systematic review article or clinical protocols as one of your articles. At least TWO of the four original research report articles MUST BE authored by nurses and published in a peer-reviewed nursing journal.  At least ONE of the two nursing research studies must address nursing practice in a non-USA country.

  • Page      1: Title page Create a title for your paper. Refer to your APA Manual.
  • Page      2: Abstract The abstract should open with a sentence that will serve      as an introduction to and purpose of the paper. Then describe what is in      each part of the paper. An abstract is usually a brief outline of the      contents of the paper that typically does not exceed 250 words. At the end      of the abstract place the phrase Key Words, and denote 3-4 keywords      that would describe your paper (as for publication and indexing in CINAHL      or PubMed).
  • Pages      3-11: Narrative

  • Heading:      Methods: Discuss the methods used to select the following research      studies. Next use the subheading:

  • Sub-headings:      Study #4: Nursing Research Study USA or Non-USA (Approximately 1½      pages)
  • Heading:      Conclusion.  Summarize the key points from your discussion. How      would you translate (use) the new evidence found from your appraisals to      change practice or answer your PICOT question? (Approximately 1 page).
  • Page      12+: Reference page: Refer to your .

Each of the subheadings should include for each article:
