Editorial Narrative Summary
Also a real-time collaborative and editable document (aka “living document”), the pinnacle of the package, this 5-10 page summary is a collection of the facts of the case (with hyperlinked references to original PDF’s) and relevant opinions of the NP reviewer.
The summary is written in an organized by-topic format to cover critical events in an “editorial” fashion. This format is easier to digest when you’re needing an overview of the findings and main points to consider covering in your opening and closing statements.
If you request it, the NP may include links to relevant case studies or research in the literature that supports the standard of care position. The NP reviewer is well-equipped with the vocabulary, comprehension, and database access (not available to laypersons nor to RNs–providers only!) to search the literature and locate the ever-changing standard of care practices. Furthermore, having had additional formal training in research and statistics above and beyond your average RN legal nurse, she can more efficiently evaluate the studies for robustness and relevance.
