92902 Care of the Acutely Ill Child: What is a literature review?

In this guide:

Literature reviews aim to compare and contrast the thinking, ideologies, concepts and thoughts in 'the field' of a particular subject area. It is a chance for the student not to simply summarise this, but to be able to compare, contrast, 'reflect upon' and indeed 'critically analyse' 'the literature' whilst also being able to layer their own thoughts and opinions on the importance of this literature into the writing.

This video on literature reviews from the university of Melbourne is great if you would prefer a more detailed explanation on how to complete a literature review.
