|Broad Topic Area/Title||The study/topic is to study the impacts of hormonal contraceptives during breastfeeding on baby’s growth and milk ingestion. The topic of the research attempts to explore the general effects of contraceptives on breastfeeding children and the ingestion of milk.||The study’s main topic is to show the association between the nurse skill mix and the nursing-sensitive patient results in acute care settings. It has been hypothesized that high skilled nurses with high levels of experience often influence effective patient outcomes. The study, therefore, attempts to investigate the correlation or association between the nurse skill mix and the nursing-sensitive patient outcomes in acute care settings.||The study’s main topic is the impacts of nursing care delivery models on the registered nurse outcomes in different healthcare settings. It has been theorized that nursing care delivery models improve efficiency, a scenario that leads to effective patient outcomes in the treatment process.|
|Identify Independent and Dependent Variables and Type of Data for the Variables||Independent variable: Level of hormonal contraceptives (continuous variable with a normal distribution) Dependent Variable: Rate of milk ingestion in infants (continuous and normally distributed variable)||Independent variable: Nurse skill mix (continuous and normally distributed variable) Dependent variable: Nursing sensitive patient outcome (continuous random variable)||Independent variable: Nursing care delivery model (categorical variable) Dependent variable: Registered nurse outcome (continuous variable with a normal distribution of data) The whole process of study involved determining the correlation between the independent and dependent variables.|
|The population of Interest for the Study||The population of interest in this study involves lactating mothers who are using hormonal contraceptives for birth control. The respondents are selected from various healthcare settings. Specifically, mothers attending clinics for their infants were used in the study process. Patients on postpartum day 42 were mainly considered in the research process.||The population of interest in the study involves patients and nurses operating in acute care settings. The study mainly involved nurses with different skills and experiences. Also, there were involvement other healthcare professionals such as doctors and physicians.||The population of interest in the study includes registered nurses from different healthcare settings. The respondents mainly involved registered nurses undertaking various treatments in healthcare settings.|
|Sample||The sample size used in the study was 40. In other words, 40 breastfeeding women were selected in the study. They were given hormonal control contraceptives and followed over a given period.||There were a total of 63 respondents selected for the study. These respondents included were selected from different healthcare settings. The selected participants confirmed their willingness to participate in the study through the signing of consent documentation.||A small sample size of 38 respondents was identified to take part in the study. All the respondents were presented with the questionnaires where they were able to fill the information required for the purposes of analysis.|
|Sampling Method||A simple random sampling technique was used to select study participants or respondents. Out of the population identified, the participants were picked randomly, and they were to sign the consent documentation to confirm their willingness to participate in the study.||A simple random sampling technique was used to select the study participants. The respondents were arbitrarily selected from the target population.||A simple random sampling method was used to identify the respondents. The study participants were selected randomly from the population. They were then provided with the consent documentation to confirm their willingness to participate in the study.|
|Descriptive Statistics (Mean, Median, Mode; Standard Deviation) Identify examples of descriptive statistics in the article.||Some of the descriptive statistics used in the study include: MeanMedianModeMaximumMinimumfrequencies||Some of the descriptive statistics used in the study include: Mean Median modeMaximum Minimum||There were descriptive statistics used in the study, which include: Mean MedianFrequenciesPercentages The descriptive statistics indicated the attributes of both the dependent and independent variables in the whole process of the study.|
|Inferential Statistics Identify examples of inferential statistics in the article.||Some of the inferential statistics used in the study include: t-testMann-Whitney testFisher exact test||Some of the inferential statistics used in the study include: pre‐test–posttestDescriptive correlations||The inferential statistics evident in the study include: hierarchical multiple regressionchi-square analysesAnalysis of variable (ANOVA)|
The interpretation of research in health care is essential to decision making. By understanding research, health care providers can identify risk factors, trends, outcomes for treatment, health care costs and best practices. To be effective in evaluating and interpreting research, the reader must first understand how to interpret the findings. You will practice article analysis in Topics 2, 3, and 5.
For this assignment:
Search the GCU Library and find three different health care articles that use quantitative research. Do not use articles that appear in the topic Resources or textbook. Complete an article analysis for each using the “Article Analysis 1” template.
Refer to the “Patient Preference and Satisfaction in Hospital-at-Home and Usual Hospital Care for COPD Exacerbations: Results of a Randomised Controlled Trial,” in conjunction with the “Article Analysis Example 1,” for an example of an article analysis.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
