Professor’s comment:

Hello Class,
Welcome to week 3!  When reviewing evidence of scholarly research studies, you will consistently find the same format:  Background/Introduction, Literature Review, Methods, Results, and Discussion/Conclusion.  This week, we will spend time discussing a literature review.  To do this, please access and read:
Baker, N., Taggart, H., Nivens, A. & Tillman, P. (2015). Delirium: Why are nurses confused? MedSurg Nursing, 24(1), 15-22
Next, review the literature review and summarize the findings of their evidence search.  How does it relate to the problem they are studying?  Share what interested you about the lit review and how you might go about creating a literature review.  You may keep in mind your clinical question from week 2, if that is helpful.  Why must the literature review be thorough?
This week we will be working toward the following Course Outcomes:

Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. 
Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies. 
Evaluate published nursing research for credibility and clinical significance related to evidence-based practice.
