Tips for Literature Reviews

  • Search the nursing/healthcare literature to find studies relevant to your topic or PICO 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
