the assigned readings under the Literature Review and Annotated Bibliography section on this week’s University Library Resources page.

1.1 Assess the current organizational needs to finalize the charter and scope of the proposed project.

1.2 1.2 Critique the relevance of current literature and its application to the proposed project.

1.5 1.5 Create a detailed project proposal that aligns with the organization’s mission and vision.

Conduct a literature review pertaining to your project. This review provides you with a view of the body of research that has been conducted on your project’s topic and a means for gathering data to justify the need for your project. Examples of information that you will want to extract from your literature review are:

    • Evidence-based best practices
    • Quality indicators
    • A means for validating assumptions
    • Successful interventions

Create an annotated bibliography consisting of at least 15 peer-reviewed articles. Include an introduction and conclusion. The introduction will state the scope of the bibliography and to formulate the research question, problem, or concept that the resources in the bibliography are meant to illuminate. The conclusion will summarize the results and explain how you will use them in your project. Access Annotated Bibliography Sample to see an example of how to format an annotated bibliography according to APA guidelines.

Note: You will only be submitting the annotated bibliography for this assignment. You will be submitting the literature review as part of the Practicum Project Proposal in Week 5.

Format your annotated bibliography according to APA guidelines.

Abstract: Background Transition for young people with intellectual disabilities from paediatric or adolescent services into adult health care services remains a difficult process for all stakeholders. The study assessed the type of interventions, the methodological approaches, study designs and location of existing published evidence in health care transitions.

Results Findings demonstrate that health transition research for this population lacks a robust evidence base and researchers favour exploratory studies investigating the experiential dimension of transition. The lack of involvement of young people in the studies indicates a problematic absence of genuinely participatory research.

Conclusion The study is the first systematic review of empirical studies in health transition of young people with intellectual disabilities exploring the nature of existing evidence. The results will support setting priorities for future research.
