I’m stuck on a Health & Medical question and need an explanation.
For this assignment, use a total of 10 to 12 peer-reviewed research articles regarding problem based learning, critical thinking, and or clinical decision making from the last five years to develop an initial synthesis of the related literature. Within this synthesis, be sure to include the following:
- Determine the commonalities among the research articles by group. For example, did the researchers use similar theoretical frameworks, sample participants, or methodologies (e.g., procedures, instruments) to collect data? How were the results similar?
- Determine the differences among the research articles by group. For example, did the researchers use different theoretical frameworks, sample participants, or methodologies (e.g., procedures, instruments) to collect data? How were the results different?
- Determine reoccurring concepts/themes in the overall findings and conclusions, and state whether any of these were indicated to be in need of further inquiry.
Do not include book sources, secondary summary sources, or sources older than five years, unless the source is a peer-reviewed, original, seminal study essential for the foundational synthesis of the related research. Your literature review draft should provide an objective discussion and synthesis of the related concepts from the previous research findings, any identified contradictory concepts, and underlying related theoretical framework(s) supported by APA formatted reference citations.
Length: 8-10 pages, not including title or reference pages.
