Background!and objective

• Provide a brief background about the focus of the review question. Eg prevalence and consequences of Diabetes Mellitus in Aboriginal populations; provide a description of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and its uses.

• Modify to suit your question focus.

• THEN outline what the reader can expect from your SLR

• What is the purpose or objective/s of the SLR?  What did you want to find out? What information/evidence will you be providing to the reader and how did you establish it?

Search Strategy and selection criteria

• Describe how you went about finding your information

• Which databases were used to locate your articles?

• Which subject headings and key words were used?

• What limitations did you apply to refine your search?

• How many articles were initially found?

• How did you (what was the process/decision) reduce the  number of articles found to the number used? Eg read titles  (how many), read abstracts (how many), read full text (how  many), did not meet your question criteria (how many) etc

• Provide a brief overview of the study designs of the final  selected articles used in the SLR:

•  Were the studies, quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods  or a mixture of all (list)

• Identify the research design R cohort studies, Randomised  Control study, ethnography

• What method were used for data collectionR questionnaire, interviews, focus groups,  observation

• Remember you only have 300 words so need to be concise.  You may wish to use a flow chart to further demonstrate  your process


Main results Data synthesis and  analysis

• Use headings and subRheadings in this section.

• Provide a synthesis of the results so that you answer the original question

• Start with a paragraph that describes the issue and or the  intervention/s reviewed. Indicate to the reader which of the  methods below is to be used in your analysis of the  evidence found.

• The discussion should follow either of the following 3  strategies:

• 1 R From the most rigorous evidence to least rigorous  evidence (hierarchy of evidence)

• 2 R Thematic analysis (according to themes)

• Or

• 3  R PICO (for an evaluation of intervention/s)

• Population: the population group that was the focus of your  investigation

• Intervention/s: describe the intervention/s

• Comparison (of interventions or to no intervention)

• Outcome: was an outcome of effectiveness/benefits  established based on the literature  reviewed


Conclusion and  Implications for practice

• Summarise the main results (this will lead to the conclusion and implications). You would include any limitations of evidence here.

• What do the results mean?

• Have you answered your question confidently? Or, are the results inconclusive?

• Consider the implications / priorities for practice.
