Subject outline

In this subject, students are required to conduct a critical literature review based on the project topic the student plans to implement in NSM5CLP Clinical Project. The literature review must aim to summarise, interpret and critically evaluate the existing evidence in order to establish current knowledge of a particular subject. The literature review may address a controversy, establish the need for additional research, and/or define a topic of inquiry. It is intended to provide students with current knowledge on an aspect that relates to legal and ethical issues within the practice of professional nursing. Students will submit the literature review as both a written document and as a recorded presentation.
