– Click on this link- and assess the
– Use the CRAAP test worksheet- located on BlackboardWeek 5 folder
¦ CURRENCY – there is no copyright date apparent on the website
¦ RELEVANCE – the content appears to be written for potential patients
¦ AUTHORITY – the website relies on its self-proclaimed research
hospital status as its authority; it is affiliated with a medical school,
according to Google, doesn’t exist; and the only contact information is
an address Google Maps cannot find
¦ ACCURACY – though it appears unbiased with accurate spelling and
grammar, all the information about the hospital, its staff and its
research is stated without any references at all; many of the links are
not functioning
¦ PURPOSE – the site’s purpose appears to highlight its so-called
medical breakthroughs, but the content reveals this site to be an
entertaining hoax
Comparing Websites
– Review the following websites

Some computer games help to
develop critical thinking skills, such
as evaluating circumstances,
making inferences, and drawing
conclusions. (specific, supportable)
Introduction Example with Thesis
¦ Depression is a broad and complex subject which can be viewed many ways. Studies about
the brain’s anatomy and chemistry provide information and insight into various ways to treat
depression, including medication, psychotherapy, and electroshock therapy. The most popular
treatment in contemporary American society is medication. Over 43% of those diagnosed with
depression are actively taking anti-depressants; 17% are in psychotherapy alone (with no
medication), and 2% have undergone electroshock therapy (Smith, 2008). While most
Americans opt to take medication to treat depression, literature on the subject suggests
medicinal treatment alone is less effective than psychotherapy in that most patients who use
only medicine have recurring episodes of depression for the rest of their lives, while most
patients in psychotherapy appear to “recover” in with reporting fewer instances of recurring
¦ The literature review presented here discusses the effectiveness of the treatments along with
their pros and cons. This paper will focus on the differences between psychotherapy and
medication in treating people’s depression and improving their lives.

¦ Do not just list articles, must go under themes
Theme Based Literature Review
Identifying Themes for a Literature
¦ Each group will receive 12 sentences
¦ After reading each sentence, start to organize sentences into same

whole and think about their main idea/point they share

Home-based telerehabilitation via real-time videoconferencing
improves endurance exercise capacity in patients with COPD: The
randomized controlled TeleR Study
Discipline of Physiotherapy, University of Sydney, 2Department of Physiotherapy, 3Department of Respiratory and Sleep
Medicine, Prince of Wales Hospital, 4Agency for Clinical Innovation and 5Department of Physiotherapy, Royal Prince Alfred
Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Background and objective: Telerehabilitation has the
potential to increase access to pulmonary rehabilitation
(PR) for patients with COPD who have dif?culty accessing centre-based PR due to poor mobility, lack of
transport and cost of travel. We aimed to determine the
effect of supervised, home-based, real-time videoconferencing telerehabilitation on exercise capacity, self-ef?cacy, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and
physical activity in patients with COPD compared with
usual care without exercise training.
Methods: Patients with COPD were randomized to
either a supervised home-based telerehabilitation group
(TG) that received exercise training three times a week
for 8 weeks or a control group (CG) that received usual
care without exercise training. Outcomes were measured at baseline and following the intervention.
Results: Thirty-six out of 37 participants (mean ! SD
age = 74 ! 8 years, forced expiratory volume in 1 s
(FEV1) = 64 ! 21% predicted) completed the study.
Compared with the CG, the TG showed a statistically
signi?cant increase in endurance shuttle walk test time
(mean difference = 340 s (95% CI: 153–526, P < 0.001)), an increase in self-ef?cacy (mean difference = 8 points (95% CI: 2–14, P < 0.007)), a trend towards a statistically signi?cant increase in the Chronic Respiratory Disease Questionnaire total score (mean difference = 8 points (95% CI: -1 to 16, P = 0.07)) and no difference in physical activity (mean difference = 475 steps per day (95% CI: -200 to 1151, P = 0.16)). Conclusion: This study showed that telerehabilitation improved endurance exercise capacity and self-ef?cacy in patients with COPD when compared with usual care.

INTRODUCTION Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a ?rst line management strategy in patients with COPD as it reduces breathlessness, increases exercise capacity and Respirology (2017) 22, 699–707 doi: 10.1111/resp.12966 700 improves health-related quality of life (HRQoL).1,2 A small but signi?cant increase in physical activity in patients with COPD has also been shown following PR.3 However, 8–50% of those referred to PR never attend, whilst 10–32% of those who commence do not complete the programme.4 Barriers to attendance and completion include dif?culty accessing the programme, poor mobility, lack of transport and cost of travel.5 Home-based PR may overcome the barriers to attendance at a centre-based programme. Home-based PR resulted in signi?cantly greater improvements in exercise capacity and HRQoL compared with usual care in patients with COPD1 and these improvements were similar to those demonstrated with centre-based programmes.6 An alternative approach to delivery of supervised home-based PR is telerehabilitation, which is de?ned as the delivery of rehabilitation services using telecommunication technologies7 such as realtime videoconferencing. While there have been a number of telerehabilitation studies in COPD,8–15 the type of telecommunication strategies used have differed across studies. Two pilot randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have compared a web-based exercise programme with smartphone activity coaching, self-management education and teleconsultations to a control group (CG) of usual care.8,9 Results indicated a positive improvement in activity levels with high compliance to the activity coach,8 and high satisfaction but low adherence with the exercise programme.9 Other pilot studies where the home exercises have been supervised using real-time videoconferencing facilities have reported that programmes were safe, feasible and well accepted11–15 by patients with COPD with a high adherence rate13 and signi?cant improvements in exercise capacity12–14 and HRQoL.12 Only one study has compared telerehabilitation with outpatient PR in patients with COPD.10 This study was not an RCT and the telerehabilitation involved unsupervised home exercise training with telemonitoring support and periodic video assistance for support to exercise. The telerehabilitation group (TG) demonstrated improved physical activity, exercise capacity and dyspnoea equivalent to the outpatient PR group.10 No studies have explored the effects of home-based telerehabilitation supervised using real-time videoconferencing facilities on exercise capacity, physical activity and HRQoL in a RCT for patients with COPD. The primary aim of this study was to determine, in patients with COPD, the effects of a supervised, home-based, real-time videoconferencing telerehabilitation programme on endurance exercise capacity compared with usual care without exercise training. The secondary aim was to explore the effects of telerehabilitation on HRQoL, level of physical activity, functional performance, overall health status, anxiety and depression and self-ef?cacy compared with usual medical care in patients with COPD. METHODS Participants Patients who were referred to a tertiary hospital PR programme in Sydney, Australia, with a primary © 2016 Asian Paci?c Society of Respirology LLY Tsai et al. medical diagnosis of stable COPD (forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1)/forced vital capacity (FVC) <70% and FEV1 < 80% predicted post-bronchodilator) were invited to participate in the study. Participants were recruited according to inclusion and exclusion criteria (Table S1, Supplementary Information). Study design This study was a prospective, blinded (assessor and statistician) RCT. Participants were randomized by one of the investigators (L.L.Y.T.) using a computergenerated sequence ( ~mb55/guide/minim.htm) and concealed allocation to one of the two groups: TG who performed supervised exercise training via desktop videoconferencing or the CG who performed no exercise training. Randomization was strati?ed according to the distance walked in the 6-min walk test (6MWT) (i.e. 6-min walk distance (6MWD) > or = 350 m) and the degree of airway
obstruction (FEV1 > or = 50% predicted). The study …
