PH709 The Biology Of Public Health


A literature review summarizes and synthesizes information about a particular topic.

Literature reviews can be used in many fields to provide the foundational information necessary to support various projects like a grant proposal, research study, thesis, or dissertation.

An Annotated Bibliography contains a brief summary of each reference and how it will support your literature review.

You can download the Annotated Bibliography Checklist (Learning Resources) to assist you in creating this Assignment.

This Assignment requires you to choose a chronic illness or condition as your topic. Your Literature Review Assignment must be due in Module 4.

Chronic disease is a condition that lasts for a long time and can usually be treated, but not necessarily cured.

At least four current, peer-reviewed, primary research articles should be found that explain succinctly the pathophysiology.

Although you may use more sources to support your Literature Review article, your Annotated Bibliography should only rely on primary research.

Although you can use a high-quality meta-analysis or review article, it is not considered one of the primary four studies.

Make sure you only use high-quality secondary sources that are scholarly.

Contemporary Nurse published the article in 2016.

This article presents the findings from the research that was conducted on nurse-managed education programs to help patients with heart failure.

It was a feasibility study that revealed the effectiveness of nurse-led management programs in behavior change for heart failure patients.

This article can be used to conduct research on heart failure treatment and management.

This article presents an evidence-based conclusion that nurses should actively engage in patient education.

It contains reliable information.

It was conducted with good methods.

It will therefore provide valuable and reliable information regarding the effectiveness of nurses’ contributions to the management of heart disease.

Patients with heart failure: self-care behaviors and education before and after nurse education.

European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing 13, 5: 459-465.

Bayes Genis, A. de Antonio M. Cabanes R. Cano L. Domingo M.D. M. Lupon J. and Gonzalez B. wrote the article. It was published by European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing.

This article presents a candid account of findings from a research on the effect of educational interventions on self-care and education levels of heart failure patients.

This qualitative research was performed on a group of patients with heart failure.

The training of heart failure patients results in improved self-care management strategies.

This is a credible resource, written by well-respected scholars.

This should be included in your list of research materials.

The scholars’ research was high-quality.

It provides sufficient information to be relied on when conducting a research about heart failure.

This article will incorporate the concept of self management because it plays an important part in the treatment and management of heart failure.

Sarah, C.Jill P. Gill W. Gerry R. and Lewin R. (2014).

Nursing facilitated Self management support for people with heart disease and their family members (SEMAPHFOR), a randomised controlled study.

Lewin, R. Gerry R. Gill W. Gill P. Jill P. and Sarah C. wrote the article. It was published in the International Journal of Nursing Studies, 2014.

This was a randomization-based research.

The computer-generated randomization technique was used to recruit the participants and gather data.

The research revealed that patients with heart failure can improve their self-management skills through the help of nurses.

When conducting research on heart disease, this article should serve as a reference.

It was written by respected scholars and is therefore a reliable resource.

The findings are consistent and evidence-based.

Self-management is an important aspect of the treatment for heart failure.

It can make or break the success of the treatment.

When conducting research, self-management must be included
