Develop Skills in Writing a Literature Review

The following assessment is designed to enable you to develop skills in writing a literature review. The information that you provide in this paper should be supported by a range of quality academic literature and should be referenced using APA style. Please use the assignment writing template supplied in Moodle. Write a literature review on the following topic:

Discuss the efficacy of maggot debridement therapy for treating diabetic foot ulcers. When planning and writing your literature review which is not entirely dissimilar from a typical essay, you are strongly encouraged to include an introduction that states the purpose of the evaluation followed by a background that identifies the prevalence, causes and complications of diabetic foot ulcers and introduces research on the efficacy of maggot debridement therapy. The body of your review should link and compare the articles being reviewed. You should highlight the selected studies’ main findings or arguments while offering commentary on the way the research was designed, the methods used etc. Similarities and differences, strengths and weaknesses should be explored. Towards the end of the review, you will need to illustrate how the literature informs clinical practice. The conclusion of your paper should provide a summary of the current knowledge of the topic. No new information should be introduced in the outcome of the review.
