Project description
Annotated bibliography
You need to provide one annotated reference for each of the following:
Nutrition screening tool
Probiotics in treating Ulcerative colitis
Enteral nutrition/ liquid feed in treating Crohns disease
An annotated bibliography is reference list where each reference is followed by a brief (150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph i.e. the annotation. The purpose is to inform the reader of relevance, accuracy and quality of the information within the article.
How to write the annotation:
Creating an annotated bibliography requires a variety of skills: critical appraisal, succinct analysis and thorough research:
1. Source relevant reference on your chosen topic; an original article from a journal (not a review article). An original article has an introduction, methods describing data collection, results and discussion. If you have found a good review article, look at the sources of information they use, they will provide references to original articles used.
The article should be based on human participants
It will take a bit of time to source and select your articles, be prepared to spend a few hours searching the literature.
2. Get the whole article and read carefully; examine, critically appraise and review the article.
3. Write a concise annotation summarising the theme & scope of the article.
Sample reference with annotation:
Bosher KJ, Potteiger JA, Gennings C, Luebbers PE, Shannon KA, Shannon RM. 2004. Effects of different macronutrient consumption following a resistance-training session on fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research 18(2): 212-9.
Researchers investigated the effect that consuming different combinations of food (fat, carbohydrate or water) had on fat and carbohydrate metabolism following a resistance-training session. The sample included nine healthy males ranging in age from 24 – 28 years old. Results showed significant difference among the meals for concentrations of insulin, glucose and triacylglycerols (p<0.05); however, no significant differences in the concentration of glycerol. These results support the consumption of meals high in carbohydrates following a resistance-training exercise session in an effort to promote carbohydrate uptake by skeletal muscle. In addition, the results also indicate that consuming a meal high in fat results in high levels of triacylglyerols circulating in the blood and may place individuals at risk for atherogenesis. The sample size was small and subjects were all male and of similar age; therefore, results cannot be generalized to women or to other age groups. A follow-up study including more subjects, females and/or a broader range of age would be useful.
