Literature search and summary

Literature Search
Conduct a search for articles in both of these Databases: PubMed and
Scopus.

  1. Select a topic that will show the impact of a nursing/health intervention on the health of a patient with disorder
    or health problem. (eg. cognitive behavioral treatment for sleep disorders; or motivational interviewing for
    medication adherence)
  2. Identify potential search terms for the intervention you are thinking of and post on the discussion board to get
    feedback and suggestions from classmates (optional). You should have search terms that are just for the
    intervention. You should have search terms just for the disorder/health problem.
  3. To begin your search of the literature start with PubMed. After you complete the search in PubMed, repeat your
    search with the same search term in Scopus.
  4. First enter the nursing intervention as a single search. Next enter the disorder or health problem as a single
    search. Next cross the first search with the second search by using the word AND to create the intersection of
    the terms.
  5. (If you don’t know what is meant by intersection of your search terms – go back and review Boolean Operators
    in your book or in the presentations by our TTUHSC librarian).
  6. Create a document “Plan and Record for Searching the Literature (PRSL)” (see p. 127; Table 7-2) in Gray,
    Grove, & Sutherland, 2017).
  7. Fill out the PRSL document to plan and record your search of the assigned databases. You will submit this
    completed document for this Assignment.
    Literature Summary
  8. Select two peer reviewed primary research articles located during your literature search to display on a Literature
    Summary Table.
  9. Complete the Literature Summary Table (Literature Summary Table, p. 133, Table 7-4 in Gray, Grove &
    Sutherland, 2017) by paraphrasing the basic elements of a research report for each of the articles you selected.
    [Note: a side feature is that you are going to make a table as a Word document]
    Submission of the Assignment
  10. Submit to the Assignment tab for Literature Search and Summary
  11. Create one Word document with two tables 1) PSLR and 2) Literature Summary Table
  12. Upload PDF files of both articles that you reviewed on your Literature Summary Table.

    and your disorder/health problem search term.
