And to

  • Critically reflect upon the findings with consideration given to your own interpersonal and professional attributes

 

Aim: To deepen your understanding of theoretical principles by allowing you to gather, interpret and critique the evidence base to make reasoned conclusions and judgements, and to critically reflect upon your own personal attributes in relation to an aspect of inter-professional practice.

 

How to structure your assignment:

 

Introduction: This should include

  • Background information of the topic and the research and guidance that underpins current practice in this area
  • A clear, evidence-based rationale supporting a review of the literature and the objectives that you intend to meet.

As this is a broad topic, you should focus your review on particular psychosocial factors. You must make this clear within your introduction.

 

Methods: This should be conducted and written using systematic methodology (See PRISMA checklist for guidance) and should include:

  • The databases and search terms used in the search
  • Eligibility criteria (inclusion and exclusion criteria)
  • A flow chart to show how suitable studies were identified
  • A description of and rationale for any methods/tools that you have used to assess the risk of bias and/or the quality of the studies identified

 

 

Presentation of results: To include

  • A table of the key characteristics of the studies that you have used in your review, organised using PICOS
  • A table showing your risk of bias and/or quality assessment
  • A table of the key findings from the included studies (this should mostly include data)
  • A narrative synthesis of the key findings to complement the tables

 

Data interpretation and Discussion

  • Critically appraise, summarise and interpret the evidence and include consideration of the relevance to inter-professional practice in this area.
  • Critically discuss and evaluate your findings in relation to the current role, skills and attributes of the profession (that you will join) and consider whether there is any scope for future opportunities to shape and develop practice in this area.
  • Discuss the limitations of your review and also of research and of current practice in this area.
  • Consider the implications for future practice and future research.

Conclusion:

Provide a general interpretation of the results in the context of other research and practice in this area.

 

I will do the critical reflection myself.
