Which of the following statements in the critique of a study would indicate to the reader that the study contains information that could assist in implementing new findings into practice?
a. “All the references are current and relevant to the topic of interest. The author is to be commended.”
b. “Further study is clearly needed from the lack of agreement among the experts represented in the review of literature.”
c. “The literature presented in this review seems to agree that the suggested intervention leads to better patient compliance.”
d. “This study does an excellent job of reviewing all the literature on use of compression stockings.”
Stating that literature presented in this review seems to agree that the suggested intervention leads to better patient compliance gives the reader reason to believe that the article contains actual interventions and how they were used in other settings.
Although needed and expected, the currency and relevancy of the references do not indicate the applicability of the review in practice.
The statement “Further study is clearly needed from the lack of agreement among the experts represented in the review of literature,” does not make the review sound like any useful consensus over possible practice implications has been reached.
An excellent job of the literature review does not give any information about the possible use in practice.
