With reference to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, select an issue related to one of the Health Service Standards e.g. Medication safety, Clinical handover, Recognising and Responding to Clinical Deterioration etc.

Your task for this assignment is to complete a review of the literature on your selected topic. This will require you to explore and evaluate the literature relating to your topic. The aim of your review should be to establish what research has been conducted in the topic area and, therefore, what is known about the topic. It should also address how well this knowledge is established and what direction future research might take.

A basic or simple review must include the following:

The introduction should clearly establish the focus and purpose of the literature review. It should describe the clinical problem/issue being addressed and explain why it is problem

Synthesize trends/themes in the literature (don’t just describe individual studies) Analyze and interpret the literature.

Critically evaluate what you have found: mention the strengths and weaknesses of your sources. What do the results of the review mean for clinical practice or research or the profession?
