Evaluate a primary qualitative research peer-reviewed journal article (suggested length of 3–5 pages) that has healthcare implications

Question Description

I need the second half of my paper fixed I have to turn it in by tomorrow afternoon I will provide an article and the format it needs to be in and will provide the paper that was turned in PART B DID NOT PASS!!! Here are the instructions AND notes from the teacher:


B. Evaluate a primary qualitative research peer-reviewed journal article (suggested length of 3–5 pages) that has healthcare implications by doing the following:

1. Identify how the researcher addresses the five following areas of the selected journal article, using the attached “Evidence Table”:

• background or introduction

• review of the literature

• discussion of methodology

• data analysis

• researcher’s conclusion

2. Critique whether the evidence presented in each section of the journal article supports the researcher’s conclusion.

3. Explain the protection of human subjects and cultural considerations of the journal article.

4. Identify strengths and limitations of the study.

5. Describe how the evidence informs nursing practice.

C. Acknowledge sources, using APA-formatted in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

Qualitative- and also subtypes- most often case study, others are grounded theory, phenomenology, and also descriptive subtypes.

Use the readings in module 3, chapter 6, to help you understand different methodologies researchers use.  Read your article as the researchers should tell you the methods they used to research their questions. Identifying research types and subtypes is a big concept.
 

Data Analysis
 
How did the researchers analyze the data collected?  Did they explain it enough for you to evaluate for external or internal validity? What statistical testing was used?  What analysis was discussed?  For quantitative studies examples include T-Test, ANOVA, Logistic Regression, Linear Regression, Chi-Square or descriptive statistics like frequencies, prevalence, and rates or incidence.  For qualitative studies the data is interviews or focus groups and the data is coded for themes and then analyzed based on the subtype.  If it is qualitative descriptive the sample is small and the subjective responses of the participants are usually reported without coding or analyses.
 

Conclusion
 
What are the conclusions of the researchers; do they make sense to you as a clinician?
 

A & B 2

Based on your analysis of the five areas in the table, assess whether the evidence presented in the research report supports the conclusion.

Begin by paraphrasing the author’s conclusion in a sentence; then, discuss how each of the first four sections of the research report described in the table (1 sentence each) supports the author’s conclusion (section 5).  Approximately 5 – 7 sentences total should be enough.

Hints:

Can these researchers make the conclusions that they made? Would anything else explain their results? Are there any other plausible explanations for their conclusions? Remember, you will want to justify your answer. Give a full paragraph on why or why not the evidence in the first four areas of the research paper supported the conclusion in section 5.

B 3

Identify the ethical principles that the researcher should have addressed prior to the study.  For example, what considerations should the researchers have addressed regarding informed consent, privacy, confidentiality, etc. for the specific subjects in the studies you chose to critique.  (1 – 2 paragraphs)

B 4

The strengths and limitations refer to the study design, not to the procedures or interventions being studied in the articles.  Consider things like sample size, level of research, quality of research, sampling strategy, and study design.  Also, consider what the author has stated in the last few sections of the research report regarding strengths and limitations.  (1 – 2 paragraphs)

B 5

Please discuss how the results of the study you selected impacts nursing practice.  (1 – 2 paragraphs)

Include a reference page and in-text citations where appropriate.
