The reason you'll be having difficulty finding something is that the study type they're asking you to write about is quantitative - it's about a systematic review or randomised controlled trial, and ethically with traches, it might be hard to do a study like this. What things did it ask you to include?

Two nursing systematic reviews I have found are here:

http://www.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab004510.html and http://www.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab001271.html

Are either of these any good to you?

im doing it on tracheostomy.

This is the question;

In this assessment you are required to present a 15-minute PowerPoint presentation to a group of approximately 10 - 12 colleagues. Your presentation should address ONE research study of quantitative research and include the following:

But the last bit of the sentence is key really - include the following So what followed?

The reason you are finding it hard is that the question is asking for quantitative studies - ie numerical counting as results, and nursing care is hard to measure in this way, hence why no studies exist - studies are more likely to be qualitative in nature, and not what this essay question is asking for - it would be unethical to do a randomised controlled trial of tracheotomies I think - can you not pick another subject?

it wouldn't be unethical to do a rct around tracheostomies, whether a piece of research is ethical depends on the research question and the protocol, not the topic being researched.

so cochrane reviews would be unnacceptable.
