It is a long, rigorous process of consistently gathering information to analyse. It is frequently gathered through the use of structured

smoking manages it. Medical researchers have conducted novel research to observe the effectiveness of smoking cessation on COPD patients, while some have summarized and analyzed previous research to recommend involvement of nurses in intervention programs. The main aim of research in this field is to measure the severity of the disease and analyze the possible effective ways of reducing the harsh effects of smoking in COPD patients. Research in this field also draws scholarships from broad topics like

The researchers stated that the focus of this study is to address the gaps and understand the challenges and issues associated with obesity and continence care in the nursing home setting (Bradway, Miller, Heivly & Fleshner, 2010).

This guide was chosen due to our familiarities with this tool, as well as the methodical, linear nature and ease of use. This tool is supported by Boswell and Cannon (n.d), when they show support for Polit and Beck’s (2013) statements, that nurses who engage in critical nursing research reviews make valuable contributions to the improvement of nursing knowledge
