(Learning Outcome 4).Briefly highlight the key original research studies and guidelines
related to your topic that have been published in reputable journals/sources in
your field of practice (Learning Outcome 2).Explain and justify why the findings of the background studies indicate
a need for your review of literature. In other words, explain what already
exists and the gaps in what is known that will be answered during your review
of existing literature. (Learning Outcomes 1& 4).Formulation
of a research question (200 words). Clearly

Explain the issue you
are examining, itssignificance to your field of practice and its relation to your chosen domain from the NHS

c. For each of the themes you have
identified, discuss and critically analyse and evaluate the relevant

these in order to bridge the gap.Apply your research findings for patient
benefit in line with the current Clinical Guidelines and National Service
Framework. (Learning Outcomes 1 & 4).
Conclusion (200 words)
a. Summary. Summarise the key
