Describing Quantitative Research Describe what quantitative research is in your own words. Then discuss how and what type of Quantitative Data you would collect related to your POI
Step 1: Introduction Write an introduction to the topic and end the paragraph with a thesis statement. The introduction should include 2-3 attention grabbing statements and end with 1 concise thesis statement that describes the overall purpose of your paper. Step 2: Describing Quantitative Research Describe what quantitative research is in your own words. Then discuss how and what type of Quantitative Data you would collect related to your POI. For example, if I was interested in changing a policy on pain scales in the pediatric setting, I might collect data on how many pain scales are used in the facility, what pain scores are and at what point a pain score (data) warrants medication administration to a patient and their expected level of relief. It is not necessary to include the design of a study in this section. Step 3: Completing the Appraisal Tools Locate your 2 quantitative studies so you can appraise each separately with the tool below. Students must include: one (1) meta-analysis or systematic review AND one (1) single study, e.g. randomized control trials, quasi-experimental studies, correlation or observational studies, case control or retrospective studies, cohort studies. Mixed studies may be used for the single study, but you can NOT use it for the next assignment. Once you have found 2 different quantitative study designs as specified, complete the appraisal tool for each study using the following link. Appraisal Tool -PDF document use this tool to appraise both quantitative studies separately. Attach the completed sections to your paper or with your assignment.

Review this video (Links to an external site.)to help you complete the tool. (click on “video” in blue) Step 4: Article Discussion Use the information from your appraisal tool to discuss in detail the following information for each study: purpose and design of study methodology: discussion must include instruments used (questionnaires, surveys, tools) and whether they were valid and reliable, support these findings from information in the study Validity/Reliability-see Readings and Resources for additional information results, limitations or gaps level of evidence according to tool and discuss findings from the study to help you determine this information quality of evidence rating determined by applying evidence from the tool and each study Understanding the levels of evidence tells you about the type of study performed, design, methods, etc. and if those findings should be applied to your own practice area. Grade of Recommendation is important because it helps you make a judgement about the quality of evidence; together they impact the decision about implementation into practice. The following tool can be used to help you determine strength and quality, but this information is also listed directly on the tool. John Hopkins Evidence Rating Scale (Links to an external site.) Step 5: Applicability to Practice and Future Research Discuss the implications to practice from the 2 studies by supporting how the findings can influence at least 3 of the Institute of Medicine Aims: safety, efficiency, effectiveness, patient centered, timely and equity. Step 6: Conclusion: Provide a conclusion to the paper summarizing all main points. A conclusion should NOT state any new information that was not previously addressed in the paper. It should not re-state the purpose of your writing, but summarize the writing. Determining the main points of each section of the paper (body of text) will help you formulate your conclusion. Step 7: Creating an Evidence Matrix Create an evidence matrix of the 2 appraisal studies for this assignment. There is an example provided to you below. Include both studies used in the appraisal from this paper on the matrix. Keep this matrix as it will be used on the following paper as well AND NU 611 if you are in the DNP track, so be sure to put it in a safe place that you will be able to easily find again. The matrix determine if students can identify the study design, methodology, findings, results, limitations, level of evidence. The matrix should be included as an appendix OR you may upload as a separate attachment if needed.
