What advantages or disadvantages do you see in using both types of methods in a nursing study?.
Answer the following questions and provide a minimum of 1 reference article quoted for each question. Qualitative data has been described as voluminous and sometimes overwhelming to the researcher. Discuss two strategies that would help a researcher manage and organize the data. The three types of qualitative research are phenomenological, grounded theory, and ethnographic research. Compare the differences and similarities between two of the three types of qualitative studies and give an example of each. Describe sampling theory and provide examples to illustrate your definition. Discuss generalizability as it applies to nursing research. Provide examples of experimental and nonexperimental research design. Contrast the levels of control applied to each. Compare independent variables, dependent variables, and extraneous variables. Describe two ways that researchers attempt to control extraneous variables. Support your answer with peer-reviewed articles. Describe the “levels of evidence” and provide an example of the type of practice change that could result from each. The theoretical foundations of qualitative and quantitative methods are very different, but many researchers believe both methods should be used in the research study to increase validity and reliability. Support your answer with current evidence-based literature. According to the textbook, nurses in various settings are adopting a research-based (or evidence-based) practice that incorporates research findings into their decisions and interactions with clients. How do you see this being applied in rehabilitation nursing environment?
