Tips for Literature Reviews

  • Search the nursing/healthcare literature to find studies relevant to your topic or PICOT question.
  • Don’t just summarize and list studies on your subject, instead:
    • Appraise your findings
    • Summarize research studies
    • Compare and contrast studies
    • Synthesize the key concepts of your readings
