(Answered) NRS 490 Week 6 Assignment


While the implementation plan prepares students to apply their research to the problem or issue they have identified for their capstone change proposal project, the literature review enables students to map out and move into the active planning and development stages of the project.

A literature review analyzes how current research supports the PICOT, as well as identifies what is known and what is not known in the evidence. Students will use the information from the earlier PICOT Statement Paper and Literature Evaluation Table assignments to develop a 750-1,000 word review that includes the following sections:

  1. Title page
  2. Introduction section
  3. A comparison of research questions
  4. A comparison of sample populations
  5. A comparison of the limitations of the study
  6. A conclusion section, incorporating recommendations for further research

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Literature Analysis

Literature analysis is a pivotal aspect of project development particularly in field of medicine as it provides the researcher with more insights and extensive knowledge in light of existing evidences, aspects, concepts and theories related to the topic of research. Taking this into consideration, this paper seeks to discuss a literature analysis regarding a study for prevention of adolescent suicide. It includes a comparison for research question, sample population and limitation of studies. It employs the picot question, “In adolescents girls age 10-14, diagnosed with depression and identified as “at risk” for suicide, would educational handouts as compared to technology-oriented suicide prevention interventions, improve patient knowledge and reduce suicide risk after a single outpatient office visit?”. This literature analysis searched PubMed, the Cochrane Library, Medline, PsychINFO, CINAHL, Google scholar and EMBASE for journal articles using multiple terms, Medical subject heading (meSH) terms and keywords that relate to  suicide prevention for studies not older than 5 years. The search took into account key words and key concepts such as adolescent depression, suicide risk, suicidal behavior (attempt, ideation or suicide), adolescent girls’ suicide risks, educational handout for suicide risk intervention and technology-oriented suicide prevention interventions.

Comparison of Research Questions

Different studies have focused on diverse research issues and thus varied study questions. The systematic review by Zalsman et al. (2016) seeks to find out strategies for suicide preventions.  This evaluates seven interventions in the endeavor to establish the effective suicide prevention strategy. The seven interventions include restricting access to suicide means, media strategies, internet or hotline support, public and physician education, screening and treatments. Another study by Anderson, Chen, Perrin, and Van Cleave (2015) examines the outpatient visits and the medications prescribed by primary care providers and other mental healthcare providers for children in US suffering mental conditions……….Please click the icon below to purchase full solution at $10
