Week 1 Discussion

DQ1 Your Research Agenda

Think of a frustrating experience you have had as a health care worker (student or otherwise). Identify the problem area and write down the research problems that correspond to your experience. Ask yourself a series of questions until you generate one that you feel is researchable. Evaluate the problem using established criteria for what constitutes a researchable problem. What is the purpose of your research? Identify any hypotheses that lead from this problem identification.

DQ2 Annotated Bibliography

Perform a Web search on ‘annotated bibliography.’ Compare and contrast a literature review with an annotated bibliography. Which is more applicable to nursing research/evidence-based practice and why? What is the ultimate goal of each strategy?



Week 2 Discussion

DQ1 Critical Appraisal

After completing the lesson for this module, choose the three questions you feel are most important for the nurse to ask as s/he critically appraises nursing research for practice. Support your choice

DQ2 Objectivity

When critiquing a nursing research study, what are some ways in which the reader can strive for objectivity? How can this objectivity be supported and demonstrated? Explain why objectivity is essential in preparing a valid critique.



Week 3 Discussion

DQ1 Conceptual Framework

Read the attached Allen et al. (2012) article and post the answer to these questions.

Allen, D., Ploeg, J., & Kaasalainen, S. (2012). The relationship between emotional intelligence and clinical teaching effectiveness in nursing faculty. Journal of Professional Nursing, 28(4), 231-240.

What are the two concepts that were studied?

For each concept, what is the variable?

DQ2 Ethnonursing

Ethnonursing is the ethnographic approach applied to nursing science. Its development is associated with M.M. Leininger and her desire to generate substantive transcultural nursing knowledge. After exploring this linkLinks to an external site., explain the importance of ethnonursing to everyday nursing practice.


Week 4 Discussion

DQ1 Operational or Conceptual

Differentiate between an operational definition and a conceptual definition. Explain why you agree or disagree that each research variable should be defined both ways.

DQ2 Types of Data Analysis

Go to the Internet and search for “types of data analysis.” Compare the information found on these sites to the text. Choose two web sites that help you by organizing information about data analysis. Bookmark those two sites and share them with the class by posting in this forum. Be sure to explain why you chose those sites.



Week 5 Discussion

DQ1 Ethical Concerns in Internet Research

With the increased use of the Internet for nursing research, new ethical concerns have arisen. Describe two of them.

DQ2 Does Code Equal Action?

Can adherence to a code of ethics alone protect human subjects in biomedical research? Do institutional review boards (IRBs) always protect human subjects? Why or why not? Please list a simple example.



Week 6 Discussion

DQ1 Nominal Ordinal Interval Ratio Statistics Search

Conduct a Web search on this phrase: “nominal ordinal interval ratio statistics.” Identify two Web sites that give good information (as compared to your textbook) on statistics that are appropriate for each of the four main levels of measurement. List those websites on the discussion board and describe them. Then, compare the Web sites you chose with a classmate. Who chose the ‘better’ sites?

DQ2 Reliability

Observation can be a subjective form of measurement. The Liaw et al. (2009) study is attached below. To overcome the potential for error, Liaw et al. developed a protocol for the observations of nurses’ care-giving activities with preterm infants. Identify at least four things that the researchers did to strengthen the reliability of the observational measurements.






Week 7 Discussion


Conduct a Web search on ‘PICO EBP.’ In your discussion posting compare/contrast two websites that discuss the use of PICO for formulating evidence-based practice projects.

DQ2 Roles in Research

Compare and contrast outcomes research, research utilization, and evidence-based practice. How is each type of research used? What are some ways to promote research utilization? Explain the nurse’s role and the organization’s role in utilizing research.
