Qualitative research designs

Instructions: Response must be at least 310 words written in current APA format with at least two academic references cited. References must be within the last five years. Response must extend, correct/refute, or add additional nuance.

Qualitative research designs are used in nursing research studies depending on the methodology used in the study, including methods for participation, such as focus groups. In-depth interviews (telephone or face-to-face interviews), observations. The main reason for using qualitative research design is to generate richly and detailed understanding of the specific issue, topic or establish the meaning of a particular phenomenon using first-hand experiences from the study participants. However, the methods used for collecting data are sometimes time-consuming instead of quantitative research designs (Stenfors et al., 2020). Qualitative research designs seek to establish answers to the hows and whys of a particular phenomenon, issue, or topic in question. Therefore, qualitative research designs are termed subjective studies since the findings from the study are presented in written formats rather than numerical formats as used in quantitative studies.

Besides, the data generated from nursing studies that use qualitative research designs cannot be analyzed using quantifiable statistical techniques due to the absence of commonness from varieties of collected findings. However, a coding process is usually implemented following the identification of common categories during the analysis of the data generated in the nursing study (Stenfors et al., 2020). This direction usually steers the researchers to model the respondents of the study to a particular direction to expand and retrieve detailed information on specific points that they want to major on, especially during interviews or focus group responses, or participants observations on particular actions carried out (Levitt et al., 2021). The following approaches are used with qualitative research designs: Grounded theory, ethnography, action research, phenomenological research, and narrative research.

bronchiolitis

a. Loss of elastic recoil

Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

Assignment: Evidence-Based Project, Part 4: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

The collection of evidence is an activity that occurs with an endgame in mind. For example, law enforcement professionals collect evidence to support a decision to charge those accused of criminal activity. Similarly, evidence-based healthcare practitioners collect evidence to support decisions in pursuit of specific healthcare outcomes.

In this Assignment, you will identify an issue or opportunity for change within your healthcare organization and propose an idea for a change in practice supported by an EBP approach.

To Prepare:

  • Reflect      on the four peer-reviewed articles you critically appraised in Module 4,      related to your clinical topic of interest and PICOT.
  • Reflect      on your current healthcare organization and think about potential      opportunities for evidence-based change, using your topic of interest and      PICOT as the basis for your reflection.
  • Consider      the best method of disseminating the results of your presentation to an      audience.

The Assignment: (Evidence-Based Project)

Part 4: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

Create an 8- to 9-slide narrated PowerPoint presentation in which you do the following:

  • Briefly      describe your healthcare organization, including its culture and readiness      for change. (You may opt to keep various elements of this anonymous, such      as your company name.)
  • Describe      the current problem or opportunity for change. Include in this description      the circumstances surrounding the need for change, the scope of the issue,      the stakeholders involved, and the risks associated with change      implementation in general.
  • Propose      an evidence-based idea for a change in practice using an EBP approach to      decision making. Note that you may find further research needs to be      conducted if sufficient evidence is not discovered.
  • Describe      your plan for knowledge transfer of this change, including knowledge      creation, dissemination, and organizational adoption and implementation.
  • Explain      how you would disseminate the results of your project to an audience.      Provide a rationale for why you selected this dissemination strategy.
  • Describe      the measurable outcomes you hope to achieve with the implementation of      this evidence-based change.
  • Be      sure to provide APA citations of the supporting evidence-based peer      reviewed articles you selected to support your thinking.
  • Add      a lessons learned section that includes the following:
    • A       summary of the critical appraisal of the peer-reviewed articles you       previously submitted
    • An       explanation about what you learned from completing the Evaluation Table       within the Critical Appraisal Tool Worksheet Template (1-3 slides)
