Data Collection and Analysis
Throughout this course you have applied the unit learning to the critique of two studies in a step-by-step manner. The studies are reported in these articles:
Foster-Fitzpatrick, L., Ortiz, A., Sibilano, H., Marcantonio, R., & Braun, L. T. (1999). The effects of crossed leg on blood pressure measurement. Nursing Research 48(2), 105–108.
Palese, A., Skrap, M., Fachin, M., Visioli, S., & Zannini, L. (2008). The experience of patients undergoing awake craniotomy. Cancer Nursing 31(2), 166–172.
For this week’s Project, you will submit a critique of the data collection and data analysis methodologies used in these studies. Remember that one is a qualitative study, and the other is a quantitative study, so different criteria apply. In your textbook on pages 112–114 there is a guide to the critique of a quantitative study, and on pages 115–117 is a similar guide to the critique of a qualitative study. (Also note that in each chapter there are dialog boxes related to specific critique questions for that specific section of the study). Be sure to address both the descriptive and inferential statistics if indicated and the author’s generalization of the results.
In your conclusion, summarize your overall review of these sections of the study. How well did the researchers follow the research process guidelines? Did you find anything unusual? How does it impact the overall research study if any of the elements are missing?
The finished Assignment should be a 3-4 paged critical/evaluative essay, excluding the title page and references. The viewpoint and purpose of this Assignment should be clearly established and sustained.
