NR505 week 1 discussion

Free Sample Answer give below

Write a quantitative research question using the PICO(T) model about a health or safety issue observed in the Ironridge or Summerville community or your practice setting. Conduct a search of the literature for the quantitative research question. (Remember you can use this topic and quantitative research article as part of your Research Summary Table assignment).Provide a brief summary of your quantitative research article.

You will not be able to see other’s posts for this forum until you have posted your response to the threaded discussion thread.

NR505 week 2 discussion

Review the differences in predictive and prescriptive studies and select a predictive or prescriptive article that you found in your literature search. What are the independent variables (IV), dependent variables (DV), and mediating variables (MVs) that you find in the article? How do determining IVs, DVs, and MVs help you discern the theory tested in the research? In your particular article, what risk factors are identified, or what recommendations are provided?

NR505 week 3 discussion

Plan a Qualitative Study (graded)

Write a qualitative research question using the PICO(T) model using the P (population), I (abstract concept), O (outcome), and T (time) from the PICO(T) model about an issue from your practice setting. Conduct a search of the literature for a qualitative research article that would answer your qualitative research question. What qualitative research design (Phenomenology, Grounded Theory, Ethnography) did you select and why? Provide a summary of the study. How will you make sure that the information you obtain is trustworthy? How is trustworthiness in qualitative research similar and different from reliability and validity?

Sample Answer:

Quantitative research designs use mathematical and scientific examples to explain, analyze, and or control occurrences. This designs includes collecting numerical facts. This approach can also include the measurement and data of attitudes, behaviors, and insights based on observable behavior of samples. As this approach is a systematic investigation that collects numerical data to test theories, it is considered experimental in nature. In Quantitative research of air pollution in Ironridge, analysis was done to reach to a conclusion that extended beyond the immediate data………………………………………….. difference between quantitative and qualitative methods are only stylistic where the difference between two is surface traits especially the use of numbers versus words. Quantitative research is rooted in logic and set theory (Goertz et al., 2012)…..

My research question will be: Among hospitalized elderly patients of Ironridge with asthma (P ) does a formalized asthma education program for patients by a certified asthma nurse educator (I) compared to traditional hospital discharge education (C ) results in decreased emergency room visits (O), within one year (T) ?………

NR505 week 4 discussion

What are the various types of sampling, along with their advantages and disadvantages? As we think about sampling and ethical practices, review these two documents on ethical issues in research:

  • Tuskegee syphilis study at.cdc.gov/tuskegee/”>http://www.cdc.gov/tuskegee/
  • An overview of questionable studies: Resnik, D. (2012). Research ethics timeline (1932-present). Retrieved from.niehs.nih.gov/research/resources/bioethics/timeline/index.cfm”>http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/resources/bioethics/timeline/index.cfm

What are the implications of this information with respect to the recruitment of human subjects in a study related to your chosen issue?

NR505 week 5 discussion

Inferential Statistics (graded)

Complete a PICO(T) search on a topic that pertains to your practice setting. Select one of the articles from your search. Identify the descriptive statistics. Then describe the inferential tests that were used in the article (in other words, t-tests and chi-squares). Given the p-values related to the tests, how do you interpret the results? Are they statistically significant, also clinically significant? What are the recommendations based on this paper? Share some alternate explanations (mediating or intervening variables) for the results of the study. If your chosen study does not contain inferential tests, then choose a different article that does contain inferential tests so you can participate in the discussion.

NR505 week 6 discussion

Evidence-Based Models (graded)Read the box above about Mr. Lowell and his facility. As an advanced practice nurse, you will looking at various evidence based practice models and choosing two of them to compare and contrast here. After you compare and contrast them, discuss which one you would recommend to this facility and why? Remember to support your posts with scholarly research in APA 6th ed format.

NR505 week 7 discussion

Quality, Safety, and Costs (graded)

Class, this week I would like for you to think about a patient scenario related to our Summerville scenario. Mr. Lowell is especially concerned about a costly high infection rate in surgical patients at St. Louis Medical Center, along with a lack of concern about patient’s psychological needs. He has read about the efforts of the QSEN Institute (.org/”>http://qsen.org) to promote quality and safety. He was surprised to see that patient concerns are inherent in the quality improvement conversation. Place yourself in the role of nurse educator to help the new staff education director and the clinical practice council study both problems. How would you explain the relationships among quality, safety, and costs to the director and staff? How would you demonstrate the importance of nursing care in addressing this issue? What outcome variables would you recommend?

NR505 week 8 discussion

Purpose

The purpose of this assignment is to provide students with practice in identifying, reading, and critiquing systematic research reviews related to nursing. A systematic review is defined as “A summary of evidence, typically conducted by an expert or expert panel on a particular topic, that uses a rigorous process (to minimize bias) for identifying, appraising, and synthesizing studies to answer a specific clinical question and draw conclusions about the data gathered (Melnyk&Fineout-Overholt,2011, p.582).
