? What methods did the researcher/s use to collect and analyse their data, and why?
? What are the key findings of the study? ? How does this article add to the evidence base for your question?
? What are the main study limitations, and how will the limitations influence how you will use this research? Draw an overarching conclusion from the review of this collection of evidence.
What evidence-based answer can you give based on your review of the literature, and what recommendations do you have for future studies to collect additional evidence for your question? (1200 words)
Please reference this assignment thoroughly and accurately. Include the references for the articles you are reviewing. Include a screenshot of the first page of each article, including the abstract (NOT the database abstract) in your assignment as an appendix. Assessment Criteria Measures Intended Learning Outcome:
