The researchers developed a systematic program of research, building on their own earlier findings making it more likely to make an important contribution (Polit & Beck, 2017). The authors paraphrased often, therefore not over relying on direct quotes from their original sources. •Does the review support the need for the study? The research review supported the study and strengthened the hypotheses. The data and additional quantitative and qualitative research articles supported the missed care results, limited bias, and predicted an existence of a relationship between the identified variables.
Qualitative research explores phenomena and relies heavily on extensive interviewing. Once its data is collected, its research is modified according to what is found (Mack et al., 2005). Quantitative research, however, attempts to prove or disprove existing hypotheses concerning phenomena (Mack et al., 2005). It employs very rigid surveys, observations, and questionnaires. Despite their differences, both qualitative and quantitative research are effective and evidence

Therefore, MFW odour management increase the challenges in providing good care for cancer patient. Purpose: To review and analyze a recent
For many years, quantitative methods for research have been used to test theories and hypotheses. Qualitative methods are still growing and in contrast to the quantitative methods, they provide a better understanding of meaning and experiences of participants. The emphasis is on the quality of experience, instead of causal relationships (Pietkiewicz & Smith, 2012). It is very important to follow a set of guidelines to provide the readers with adequate details of the research being performed and give an overview and understanding of the participants’ background lives. Elliott, Fischer, & Rennie (1999) constructed a set of guidelines to review qualitative research.
This research mainly aims at answering ‘why and how’. This type of research is generally used by doctors and psychologists. According to Mitchell & Jolley, 2012., In a descriptive research, a phenomena taken, is illustrated in such a detail, so as to fill in any missing parts , leading to expansion and better understanding of the topic . Probability vs Non-Probability sampling method Since most data assembling methods involve a choice of experimental subject. This choice can be through use of probability-based methods, where the selection is done by some "mechanical” procedure, involving lists of random numbers, or the equivalent.
Research Methodology This chapter will be based on the methodology used for carrying out this study. It will be answering the research questions in section 1. The research design will be presented as well as the research paradigm. The data collection tools will be studied and data analysis will be described. The reliability and validity of this study will also be described.
For this research, Quantitative study was used as it involved deduction. Hypotheses was formulated; the dependent and independent variables were identified which assisted in measurements of objectives. Data was collected by using close-ended questionnaires. 5.1 Research paradigm According to the requirements of research question, it was decided that it would be appropriate to choose the positivism approach as the philosophical assumption and research paradigm for the study. Besides this, the quantitative approach was used during this research.
Integrative Review: It is considered a type of research that, surveys; investigates; and combines agent writing on a subject in a coordinated way with the end goal that new systems and points of view on the theme are created. The assortment of writing incorporates all investigations that address related or indistinguishable speculations. A well-done integrative audit meets an indistinguishable guideline from essential research as to clearness, thoroughness, and replication. 4. Methodological Review: A review does not generally centre on what somebody stated, but rather how they said it.
Descriptive research concerned with specific predictions, with narration of facts and characteristics concerning individual, group or situation are all examples of descriptive research studies. Nature: Descriptive research is designed for the investigator to gather information about present existing conditions. Descriptive research involves collection of data in order to test the hypothesis or to answer questions concerning the current status of the subject of the study. This type of study determines and reports the way things are. It has no control over what is, and it can only measure what already exist.
Chapter 3 Research Methodology This chapter shall specify the method of research used. It is composed of research design, research locale, selection of the study, research instrument, data gathering procedure and the analysis of the data. Research design The purpose of the research design is to guarantee that the research problems will be answered clearly. (Monette et al. 2000, p.428) stated that the Qualitative research methods are interpretative and plan to make a depth of understanding.
