Describe Critical Appraisal Of Research Literature

INSTRUCTIONS:

This is a quantitative paper which I have failed first time with a score of 40%. Here are the comments from the previous marking 

Although this essay provides some valid appraisal points, much of it, particularly the results section, falls short of being an actual critique and instead is really not much more than a summary of findings. Also, if you use quotations from references, try to comment on the implications for the actual paper, rather than leave the quotation "hanging" with no clear linkage to the study paper.

Some of the key issues went unremarked; for example: the researchers` inconsistencies in their definitions of primary and secondary outcomes; no allowance for the effect of multiple comparisons on inferences; lack of CIs and other omissions in the presentation of results.

Presentation was a little untidy with a few typos noted and examples of sentences which were very obscure in meaning. 

Plus points included a good introduction and a generally well-structured layout, but in general the essay is considered to meet only the bare minimum requirements for a pass at Master`s level.

Section mark 40%.

The paper to critique is ,Helen Truby, Sue Baic, Anne deLooy, et al - Randomised Controlled Trial Of Four Commercial Weight Loss Programmes In The Uk: Initial Findings From The Bbc "Diet Trials" in BMJ: British Medical Journal (2006).Please use the CONSORT TOOL

Critical Appraisal of Research Literature

In Europe, the highest obesity rates are in the United Kingdom. Statistics suggest that currently over 20% of the UK population is now obese and this costs the government around €3 billion annually (Jackson, Beeken & Wardle, 2015). In England the high prevalence of obesity among males is alarming, statics argue that 40% of the males in the country are overweight while 20% of that figure are obese. Ladies, on the other hand, register a high number in the number of overweight people but register a low number in obesity (Ulijaszek & McLennan, 2016). Obesity has severe health repercussions (Law, Power, Graham & Merrick, 2007), and it can be tackled in several ways. This paper will deliberate on the article (Randomized Controlled Trial Of Four Commercial Weight Loss Programmes In The UK: Initial Findings From The BBC "Diet Trials" in BMJ: British Medical Journal) which looks into ways that can be used to reduce obesity in the country and their effectiveness. As a matter of fact, this paper is a critical appraisal of the article. The paper will use the CONSORT 2010 CHECKLIST guideline when assessing the article. Moreover it will use additional sources to compare facts just like stated in the CONSORT 2010 CHECKLIST. The CONSORT 2010 CHECKLIST requires authors...
