An implementation plan prepares students to apply the research they have identified and vetted to the problem or issue they have identified for their Capstone Change Proposal Project. A literature review enables students to map out and move into the active planning and development stages of the Project.
In this assignment students will develop a 750-1,000-word literature review in which to synthesize what is known and unknown about the Project issue selected. Students will use the information from the PICOT Statement and Evaluation Table assignments prior in the course to develop a planned approach to implementing the evidence-based practice solution. The underlying purpose of this assignment is to analyze how the current research supports the PICOT, and to identify what is known and what is not known in the evidence, providing a logical, constructive argument.
Include the following sections:
A comparison of research questions
A comparison of sample populations
A comparison of the limitations of the study
A conclusion section, incorporating recommendations for further research
