Qualitative Research: Data Collection and Analysis
ONE PAGE FOR EACH. I DO NOT NEED THE PAGE THAT SAYS MY NAME AND SCHOOL. 2 PAGES FOR ALL. DO EACH WORK SEPARATELY.
1.Many nurse scholars and students consider qualitative research to be more difficult to critique/evaluate than quantitative research is.
How does the appraisal of qualitative research differ from the appraisal of quantitative research studies? Is it more difficult to critique a qualitative article? Why or why not?
2.Some researchers feel qualitative research is not rigorous and/or not controlled in regard to the data it produces. Therefore, it is sometimes not recognized by some researchers as being strong enough to support a change in clinical practice.
What are your views on this matter? Is qualitative research rigorous? How would you use qualitative research studies to support your own DNP Scholarly Project? Overall is qualitative research appropriate to use when making a change in practice? Why or why not?
My DNP Project topic is EFFECTIVE WAYS TO PREVENT PRESSURE ULCER IN ICU PATIENTS.
