Assessment task 2
Description / conditions
Narrative and literature review
In this assessment, you are required to identify an issue in your workplace where evidence from research has either not been put into
practice or has not been effectively implemented. In your introduction, describe the issue.
PART A – Narrative: Facilitate a discussion about this issue with at least 2 other colleagues in your workplace to explore any shared
concerns and suggestions about how to address it. Using the identified issue that you have discussed with your colleagues, write
a summary of the discussions, and integrate your observations with translational research literature.
PART B – Literature review: Provide a critical review (compare and contrast the research approach and the outcomes) of the
literature that justifies implementation of this activity or innovation in relation to the identified issue and tried/tested solutions to address it. A research question can help to guide your review (E.g. Is hydrotherapy the best rehabilitation process for stroke patients?).
(Note – you are encouraged to come up with an issue from your workplace, but if this proves difficult please refer to Module 1 for
examples of issues you might wish to address).
