Technology—supported guidance models stimulating the development of critical thinking in clinical practice: A mixed methods systematic review protocol
Critical thinking is an essential skill that nursing students need to develop. Critical thinking is developed through guidance in clinical practice. Technological tools have opened new avenues for technology–supported guidance that stimulates the development of nursing students` critical thinking, but it is unclear which technology–supported guidance models are being used to stimulate the development of critical thinking and what are the challenges and facilitators of such guidance models.
The aim of this study is synthesize the available knowledge on the use of technology–supported guidance models in nursing clinical practice that stimulates the development of critical thinking.
Mixed methods systematic review by using a convergent integrated design following the Joanna Briggs Institute Manual for Evidence Synthesis. Articles will be selected by screening the titles and abstracts by a pair of authors. The methodological quality of articles will be assessed by a pair of authors, according to checklists for specific study designs. Data then will be extracted through a standardised Joanna Briggs Institute Mixed Methods Data Extraction Form Following a Convergent Integrated Approach. The thematic synthesis for data transformation and synthesis will be used.
Results of this review are expected in January 2021.
By combining evidence from studies with varied methodological approaches, it is expected that there will be a broader insight into the use of technology–supported guidance models in clinical practice, in nursing education, with focus on the development of nursing students` critical thinking. Clinical Trial: This protocol is not a protocol of clinical trial.
