For this assignment please write a 2 pages literature review
on the articles uploaded to related to the information provided in highlight. Please
follow these rubric for literature review.
Include a introductions that tides the information provided
with the conceptual map in 2-3 paragraph. Then construct a conceptual map Use
Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint defined the concepts and included
relational statements in a separate attachment, based on the information
Based on the articles of evidences collected for the
proposed study of management of exacerbation of COPD via Nonpharmacologic
treatments such as pneumococcal/ influenza vaccine/ or smoking cessation
counseling. Which theories have others cited? Please use Health promotion theories by
Bonnie Raingruber and the Grand theory as the common theme of self- management
to reduce acute COPD exacerbations. Are you seeing a common theme? Self-management along with
severity of disease is the common theme for success in prevention of
reoccurrences of exacerbations with the outcome of better quality of life and
decrease admission into hospital for acute exacerbations. Next construct
a conceptual map (see p. 133 in your textbook). Provided below.
Use Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint and include this as an
attachment. Be sure you have defined the concepts and included relational
This is example of what the conceptual map should be and
Constructing a Conceptual Map
A conceptual map is a visual
representation of a research framework. With the concepts defined and the
relational statements diagrammed, you are ready to visually represent the
framework for your study. The framework may be limited to only the concepts
that you are studying or may be inclusive of other related concepts that are
not going to be studied or measured. When the framework includes concepts that
are not included in the specific
study being proposed, you must clearly identify the portion of the framework
From a practical standpoint,
first arrange the relational statements you have diagrammed from left to right
with outcomes located at the far right. Concepts that are elements of a more
abstract construct can be placed in a frame or box. Sets of closely
interrelated concepts can be linked by enclosing them in a frame or circle.
Second, using arrows, link the concepts in a way that is consistent with the
statement diagrams you previously developed. Every concept should be linked to
at least one other concept. Third, examine the framework diagram for
completeness by asking yourself the following questions:
1Are all of
the concepts in the study also included on the map?
the concepts on the map defined?
map clearly portray the phenomenon?
map accurately reflect all the statements?
5Is there a
statement for each of the links portrayed by the map?
sequence of links in the map accurate?
Developing a well-constructed
conceptual map requires repeated tries, but persistence pays off. You

symptoms depend on pathology and mediate the effects on quality of life.
