IDENTIFICATION OF SELECTED QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH DESIGN BY INDICATING IF THE DESIGN IS EXPERIMENTAL, QUASI-EXPERIMENTAL, OR DESCRIPTIVE

Requirements

Description of the Assignment:  This continues the development of a MSN EBP scholarly project by requiring the student to identify the additional elements of the process.  The required elements are noted to be:

  • Research Literature Support (NOTE:  Ten research-based references related to PICOT/PICo question are required)
  • Research Approach and Design
  • Sampling
  • Intervention

Criteria for Content

  1. Research Literature Support:In this section, comprehensive research literature support for the identified nursing concern and PCIOT/PICo question is to be provided.  A minimum of ten (10) research-based references are required.  The use of a systematic research review article as a reference is NOT allowed.  All research studies are to be consistent with the selected concern and PICOT/PICo question.  The PICOT/PICOT question is restated before presenting the research literature support.  For each research-based reference the following information is to be discussed:
  • Purpose of the research study
  • Research approach that was used
  • Data collection methods used
  • Results of the research study
  • One strength of the research study
  • One limitation of the research study.
  1. Research Approach and Design: In this section, the student will identify the research approach that he/she plans on using for the EBP project as being either quantitative or qualitative.In addition, if the selected approach is quantitative, the student needs to identify if the design is experimental, quasi-experimental, or descriptive.  If the selected approach is qualitative, the student needs to identify if the design is phenomenological, ethnography, grounded theory, or historical.  A description of the selected design is to be provided as well as rationale for its selection.  In addition one advantage and one disadvantage to the selected design is to be identified and discussed.    Required content includes:
  • Identification of the research approach that the student plans on using as either quantitative or qualitative
  • Identification of selected quantitative research design by indicating if the design is experimental, quasi-experimental, or descriptive
  • Identification of the selected qualitative design by indicating if the design is  phenomenological, ethnography, grounded theory, or historical
  • Description of the selected design
  • Rationale for the selected design
  • Identification of  one advantage of the selected design
  • Identification of  one disadvantage of the selected design
  • Provide scholarly reference(s) to support information about the selected research approach/design
  1. Sampling: In this section, the student will identify the sampling method to be used in order to obtain the necessary participants for the proposed EBP project.Discussion of participants’ rights as research subjects is also included.  Required content includes:
  • Describe the target population
  • Identify the sampling method as being either probability or nonprobability
  • Provide a complete description of the sampling procedure including:

o   Sample size

o   Inclusion criteria

o   Exclusion criteria

  • Identify one   advantage to the selected sampling procedure
  • Identify one disadvantage to the selected sampling procedure
  • Explain how participants’ rights will be protected including  confidentiality, anonymity, protection from harm, and informed consent
  • Provide scholarly reference(s) to support information about the selected sampling method
  1. Proposed Implementation with a change model:In this section, the student will apply the PDSA Change Model as the method to implement the proposed EBP practice solution/change.  The required content includes:
  • Describe the PDSA Change Model
  • Explain why this change model is best suited for implementation of your evidence-based nursing practice solution/change
  • Apply each step of the PDSA Change Model to implementing the proposed practice solution/change
  • Explain how to overcome one barrier to the use of the EBP results from this project
  • Explain how an environment that supports EBP can be fostered in your future practice setting
  • Include a scholarly reference(s) for the PDSA Change Model
