A Literature Review of Acupuncture

Length: max. 2 A4 pages (excluding references)
Literature review

This assessment assists in the development of your writing and research skills, along with nurturing skills in critical thinking and clinical effectiveness. To complete this component of your assessment you will need to conduct a literature search to locate at least four (4) peer-reviewed articles directly relevant to your modality (Acupuncture). You may want to gather more articles, this is acceptable, but you need only record the results of four articles and undertake the following activities on those four articles. It is strongly recommended that you choose the topic of your interest when you choose four articles because Assessment 4 requires your clinical question and arguments for or against particular intervention or practices based on your critical readings of these 4 articles.

i) You need to include the following details regarding the database search strategy used to locate your four articles for this assessment:

Databases accessed to locate the four articles
