Identify and discuss two major ways in which qualitative research differs from quantitative research.

Grand Canyon NUR504 Week 1 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1

Discuss the differences between research, research utilization,
and evidence-based practice. You may want to link this to the historical
evolution of research in nursing.

DQ

Identify and discuss two major ways in which qualitative research
differs from quantitative research. Is one better than the other? Provide
reference(s).

Grand Canyon NUR504 Week 2 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1

Discuss sources of bias for both quantitative and qualitative
research. For quantitative research, be sure to address both random and
systematic bias. You may use examples from the articles you selected as
illustrations of bias and/or preventing bias.

DQ 2

Researchers often identify the research problem and then go in
search of a theory. Discuss the disadvantages of doing this. What does the
textbook recommend that researchers do to assure a true fit between theory and
designing the study?

Grand Canyon NUR504 Week 3 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1
Describe the quantitative design of the article you selected.
Present the strengths and limitations of this type of design according to the
textbook and how these are reflected in your study. Contrast the design you
have selected with at least one design presented by a classmate in one of your
responses.

DQ 2

Describe the qualitative design (or methodology) of the article
you selected. Present the strengths and limitations of this type of design
according to the textbook and how these are reflected in your study. Contrast
the design you have selected with at least one design presented by a classmate
in one of your responses.

DQ1

Read the section Questionnaires versus Interviews on pages 305-306
in the textbook. How are these guidelines similar and different from data
collected by nurses when giving care? What principles did you identify that are
new to you but could be important in improving your collection of clinical
data?

DQ 2

You are interested in nurses’ attitudes toward EBP. Which method
do you think would work best to obtain this information: a questionnaire, a
face-to-face interview, or a group interview? Defend your answer.

Grand Canyon NUR504 Week 5 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1

Demographic data is collected for every study. What is the purpose
of describing the demographic data?

DQ 2

There is a tendency for novice researchers to develop their own
instrument if they cannot readily find one. How might you respond to a peer or
manager who asks you to help develop a new tool to collect patient data on
anxiety prior to cardiac catheterization?

6 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1

State in your own words what is meant by Type I and Type II
errors. Why are these important? Name one thing that can be done to improve
internal validity of a study.

DQ 2

An example of a multivariate procedure is analysis of covariance
(ANCOVA). Explain what is meant by the following statement: ANCOVA offers post
hoc statistical control. Provide an example.

7 Discussion DQ 1 & DQ 2 Latest 2015

DQ 1

In the final section of study reports, there is a section on implications
and recommendations. Describe the difference between these terms. Provide
examples from one of the studies that you critiqued.

DQ 2

Researchers have a responsibility to identify the limitations of a
study. What is meant by limitation? Provide examples from one of the studies
that you critiqued.

DQ1

Post your groups CLC EBP project. Critically read two CLC EBP
projects (other than your own). Name one barrier for each that could impact the
implementation of the guideline in practice and how you would work through this
issue.

DQ 2

Discuss what is meant by mixed-methods designs. What are the
limitations of these designs.
