criminal justice organizations

criminal justice organizations

The purpose of this assignment is to evaluate a modern, criminal justice issue and critically evaluate how criminal justice organizations can properly address this issue moving forward. Students are encouraged to think creatively to provide functional solutions while demonstrating how inter-related criminal justice organizations can best work together.

At a minimum students will address the following:

a.   An evaluation of how criminal justice systems currently address the issue, from inception to conclusion
b.   Analysis of how the issue impacts society and criminal justice organizations
c.   Current methodology and practices by organizations addressing the issue
d.   Procedural factors restricting or enhancing addressing the issue (both legal and practical)
e.   How the criminal justice system, as a whole, addresses the issue
f.    Improvements for the criminal justice system to address the issue
g.   A comprehensive plan of action for criminal justice organizations to most effectively address the chosen issue
h.    How the use of technology impacts the issue you selected

The paper can focus on any topic related to course discussion. It may be on the same topic as any of our weekly assignments. The paper can be one of three types: historical; focused on a contemporary policy or practice that is debated or controversial; or directed toward a future policy that can be supported by research (e.g., where should we go from here?).

While opinion and interpretations are permitted, this is primarily a research paper  . Do not write in the first person, but as in any well-organized research paper, any opinion or idea not referenced is obviously that of the author. Your primary source of materials must be recently published, scholarly academic articles and books. Avoid newspapers and news magazines for this assignment, except if such stories first piqued your interest. If so, include them.

Synthesis-level understanding of the themes discussed in this course is expected. For example, if your paper is on the history of policies used to handle female offenders, then you must critically evaluate awareness  all of the major theoretical models used to explain these policies that are embedded within the course text reading. This is the only reason to refer to materials in the course reading list in your paper; if you do so be sure to include them on your paper’s reference list. Your own unique research is to be based on the other books and scholarly articles you collect to write the paper.

QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH QUESTIONS AND METHODS

Introduction

The quantitative method is the original scientific method. Quantitative research methods can be subdivided by various designs that researchers use to answer their research questions. In fact, the wording of the research question must match the methodology and may contain words that indicate the design. Quantitative research identifies what happened, but not why it happened. It identifies causation or relationships.

The relationships in a quantitative research study are similar to those used for a qualitative design. There is still a relationship between the theory, problem, purpose, and the research questions, hypotheses, and design. This week you will continue to expand your understanding of this framework by analyzing and evaluating research questions and hypotheses in quantitative studies. You will also learn about various quantitative research designs that researchers use to answer their research questions.

In addition, you will continue to analyze the interrelated elements of a research study, making the connection among theory, problem, and purpose, and research questions, hypotheses, and design.

Summary

For this assignment, you will craft a quantitative research question based on the HAC you selected for the Research Problem and Purpose Statements assignment, as well as examine quantitative methodologies and data collection strategies that would enable you to answer your research question.

There is no length requirement for this assignment. Most submissions that fully address all scoring guide criteria will be 2–5 pages long.

Instructions

For this assignment build on the work that you did in the Research Problem and Purpose Statements assignment.

The assignment has two distinct parts.

Part 1: Quantitative Research Question

For this first part of the assignment, you will formulate a research question that is appropriate for a research project that will use quantitative methodologies. Remember the HAC that you used in your Research Problem and Purpose Statements assignment. Additionally, your research question should align with the problem and purpose statements that you developed at that time.

Keep in mind that a well-written research question should be a single statement.

When examining or creating qualitative research questions, the following checklist may be useful.

Quantitative Research Question Checklist
  • Does the purpose statement fit logically with the problem statement? Does the purpose statement use similar words to the problem statement, or does it seem to address a different topic?
  • Based on the problem statement, do the research questions align with the method and design of the study? For instance, are words like perception used that would automatically reject a quantitative study? Reference the research methodology publication to ensure alignment.
  • Do questions seek to describe responses to the variables described in the study?
  • Do the questions include words like compare or correlate that indicate a quantitative study?
  • Do the questions include identification of the independent and dependent variables?
  • Does the hypothesis fit with the research questions?
  • Do the questions and hypothesis identify the participants for the research study?
  • Do the questions and hypothesis specify the participants and the research site?

Relevant Scoring Guide Criteria

  • Formulate a quantitative research question and associated hypothesis.
  • Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.
Part 2: Quantitative Methods and Data Collection

For this second part of the assignment, you will draw on your readings about qualitative methods and data collection to first identify specific quantitative methodologies that will enable you to answer your research questions. Second, you will discuss specific qualitative data collection tools or strategies that are appropriate for this purpose. Questions to consider when looking for strategies and tools include the following:

  • What is your research question specifically trying to answer?
  • How does the specific HAC affect the types of tools and strategies that would work best?
  • How does the health care setting where the research project will occur affect the types of tools and strategies that would work best?

This part should also include a review of why it is important to a potential research plan as a whole to ensure that your data collection plan is relevant to your chosen methodology.

This section should be 2–5 pages long, depending on the level of detail required to fully present your methodologies and data collection tools and strategies.

Relevant Scoring Guide Criteria

  • Identify relevant quantitative methodologies that will support answering a research question.
  • Describe quantitative data collection tools or strategies that are appropriate for answering a research question.
  • Explain the importance of methodologically relevant data collection to a research plan as a whole.
  • Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.

Additional Submission Requirements

  • Structure: Include a title page, table of contents, and reference page.
  • Length: There is no length requirement for this assignment. Most submissions that fully address all scoring guide criteria will be 2–5 pages long.
  • References: Cite at least five current scholarly or professional resources.
  • Format: Use APA style for references and citations.
    • You may wish to refer to the following APA resources to help with your structure, formatting, and style:

marketing campaign

Concierge practice of medicine

A new primary care physician moved into the area and approached your hospital to partner with her as she begins a new practice in the community. Because the administration is always anxious to welcome new practitioners to the hospital, you agree to meet with the physician. During the meeting, the physician explains that she wants to establish the first concierge medical practice in the community. The physician plans to attract around 100 families to her practice, and she plans to charge from $300 to $1,000 per month, depending on the size of the family unit. (Note: A goal of 100 families may not be realistic; however, the number makes for easier calculations). The patients who join the concierge practice will receive access to the physician’s services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at an office located near the hospital. Families will receive preventive care services, and the physician will design wellness programs to encourage healthy lifestyles for her patients. The physician will use the hospital for all emergent care, day surgeries, rehabilitation, and in-patient care. The physician also plans to use nutritionists and the hospital’s fitness center facilities. In this case study.

  • Discuss some of the goods or services that could be highlighted in a marketing campaign that involves a concierge practice of medicine.
  • What advantages do you think a concierge practice of medicine might contribute to the hospital’s offerings of products to the community?
  • Discuss some of the issues and challenges that may arise from the hospital sponsoring a concierge practice of medicine.
