Review these facts, and describe what the results say about this sample of the nursing workforce. What do you believe was the intent of the researcher who designed the survey? The next process for our study is to collect data. The research design will indicate the best data to be collected. The tools that we use to collect data need to be reliable and valid. Define these terms with respect to research, and explain why they are important. Consider data collection and measurement methods for your nursing clinical issue. Explain how you would collect data and what measurement methods you would use. Week 6 discussion Data Results and Analysis After the data are collected, it is time to analyze the results! Discuss one of the four basic rules for understanding results in a research study. Compare clinical significance and statistical significance. Which one is more meaningful when considering applying evidence to your practice? Compare descriptive statistics and inferential statistics in research. Please give an example of each type that could be collected in a study that would be done on your nursing clinical issue you identified in previous weeks. Week 7 discussion Applying and Sharing Evidence to Practice After the data have been analyzed, conclusions are made regarding what the findings mean. Then, this information must be shared with your healthcare team. Choose one of the articles from the Week 5 RRL assignment, and discuss the findings. Would you apply the evidence found to your practice? Explain your answer. Translating research into practice is the final and most important step in the research process. Review information you found your nursing clinical issue and explain ways in which you would share the research-based evidence with your peers. Week 8 discussion Where Do You Go From Here? Improving patient outcomes is paramount to healthcare improvement today. How has your thinking changed about nursing research and evidence- based practice as the result of this course?
