Task: Summarise the context for the clinical practice or health policy you wish to investigate (identified in Assessment 1
• Concisely synthesise the body of evidence from the five to ten research journal articles you found in Assessment 1 ending with your conclusion or ‘bottom line” about what the evidence tells us.
• Identify the highest level of evidence addressing the PICO question developed in Assessment 1, Part 1; justify and support your rationale as to why this is the best evidence and how it addresses your PICO question.
• Identify and select an appropriate tool to appraise the evidence.
• Critically appraise the highest level of evidence relevant to your chosen clinical practice or health policy. Justify and support your rationales for your appraisal findings.
Note: All appraisals should be based on a tool developed for the critical appraisal of the specified level of evidence or guideline and that is developed by an organisation that conducts and/or appraises systematic reviews/guidelines of evidence, such as DARE, Cochrane, JBI, CASP.
