Scenario
Leah is a 21 year old health science’s student at an Australian university. She has travelled from her home country (United States [US]) to study a semester in” rel=”nofollow”>in Australia. While livin” rel=”nofollow”>ing with three
other in” rel=”nofollow”>international students she has reported gain” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing weight particularly around her abdomen, from not eatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing healthy meals, and not exercisin” rel=”nofollow”>ing regularly. Leah is enjoyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing livin” rel=”nofollow”>ing away from home,
socializin” rel=”nofollow”>ing and goin” rel=”nofollow”>ing out to parties and experimentin” rel=”nofollow”>ing with different mixed alcoholic drin” rel=”nofollow”>inks and Australian take-away foods. At home in” rel=”nofollow”>in the US she enjoyed goin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to the gym regularly, at least four
times a week. However, whilst in” rel=”nofollow”>in Australia Leah has decided not to participate in” rel=”nofollow”>in a gym, but rather spend her money elsewhere on social activities, such as goin” rel=”nofollow”>ing out and partyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing. In her spare time
Leah has casual employment to supplement her lifestyle in” rel=”nofollow”>in Australia. She likes travellin” rel=”nofollow”>ing and is not homesick. She would like to make changes to her lifestyle which will have a long term positive
impact on her weight and eatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing patterns. Leah visits the university student health clin” rel=”nofollow”>inic and asks you (as a student undertakin” rel=”nofollow”>ing placement there) to provide guidance with respect to her health
concerns. After your in” rel=”nofollow”>initial meetin” rel=”nofollow”>ing with Leah you locate two relevant research studies that you would like to critically evaluate for quality.
The followin” rel=”nofollow”>ing PICO question is used for a systematic search:
In female university students does healthy eatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing compared to exercise lead to weight loss?
The followin” rel=”nofollow”>ing questions in” rel=”nofollow”>in Part A and Part B form the basis of your critical evaluation of each research study. Please provide answers to all questions for each study.
Part A
Identify the strengths and weaknesses by critically evaluatin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the two research studies that Leah found durin” rel=”nofollow”>ing her CINAHL search (Rogerson, Soltani & Copeland., 2016; Share et al., 2015).
1. Authorship
a. Make a judgement regardin” rel=”nofollow”>ing the authors’ expertise, qualifications and affiliations.
b. Are there grounds for conflict of in” rel=”nofollow”>interest related to the authors of the paper and the
study fin” rel=”nofollow”>indin” rel=”nofollow”>ings?

2. Research Aims
a. What were the research question, aims or hypothesis (if stated)?
b. Explain” rel=”nofollow”>in how the authors justified the need for the study?
3. Design
a. Examin” rel=”nofollow”>ine the research methodology and methods used in” rel=”nofollow”>in the study?
b. Justify why the methodology and methods were appropriate to meet the aims of the
study?
c. Who were the participants in” rel=”nofollow”>in the research study?
4. Fin” rel=”nofollow”>indin” rel=”nofollow”>ings
a. Discuss how the fin” rel=”nofollow”>indin” rel=”nofollow”>ings/results/conclusion answers the stated research question,
aim or hypothesis?
Part B
1. Discuss how Leah’s personal circumstances may create a barrier for the application of evidence.
2. Discuss how closely the research aligns with the PICO question.
