While the implementation plan prepares students to apply their research to the problem or issue they have identified for their capstone change proposal project, the literature review enables students to map out and move into the active planning and development stages of the project.

A literature review analyzes how current research supports the PICOT, as well as identifies what is known and what is not known in the evidence. Students will use the information from the earlier PICOT Statement Paper and Literature Evaluation Table assignments to develop a 750-1,000 word review that includes the following sections:

  1. Title page
  2. Introduction section
  3. A comparison of research questions
  4. A comparison of sample populations
  5. A comparison of the limitations of the study
  6. A conclusion section, incorporating recommendations for further research

Urinary catheter infection


The issue of concern in the health setting in the case of urinary catheter infection. The issue of infection affects the quality of living of patients while in the health setting or even after being discharged from the health setting. The issue of urine tract infection could impact the quality of life in that the patient may end up spending more time and money in the healthcare setting. As a result of the catheter infection, the quality of health of patients and the satisfaction of patients may deteriorate. The focus of this paper is to carry out a comparison of the different aspects of the research studies that have been used in the support of the need for change on the issue of urinary catheter infection.

Comparison of research questions

In the study by Mota and Oliveira (2019) the focus is to help in the assessment of the causes of catheter infection and the strategies that are put in place to help in the management of the issue catheter infection. Andrade and Fernandes (2016) on the other hand focuses on the need for the guidelines that are put in place for the management of health concerns. The study by Clarke et al. (2013) focuses on the health issue of catheter infection and the interventions that are put in place by healthcare providers. Dougnon et al. (2016) on the other hand is instrumental in the provision of healthcare strategies that are intended to help in the elimination of issues of infection in the health setting. Vyawahare et al. (2015) as well as pointed out that the issues of catheter infection are expected to help in the management of the issues of occurrence of catheter infection and the used interventions in the health setting. Foxman (2014) has focused on the recurrence of the issues of health and the need for the development of measures of change….
