March 21, 2018 Module 3 Assignment Through patient experiences and past studies, the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery has been beneficial in many obese patients. It has shown to improve self confidence and quality of life. After the gastric sleeve surgery has been done, and the patient typically experiences weight loss, and the majority of the time their overall health improves. Patients tend to have less joint pain and see improvements with their blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Improvements with their blood pressure can be seen as well as improvements with sleep apnea.

Therefore, data can be obtained through a written questionnaire or by a personal interview with the participant (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 114). For this study, a questionnaire will be developed for the participants who have had the gastric sleeve bypass surgery in the past. Next, a meeting with participant individually will take place for a personal interview in a private room to eliminate any surrounding distractions. I will personally take notes during these one on one sessions. In a phenomenological design, researchers may clarify patient responses received by the participant with both oral and written responses (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 114). After the participants’ information is collected, it is important to read the data collected to get a better understanding of the participant. The participants’ data is then organized and meanings are formulated. The data collected is then evaluated and themes are validated by each participant individually to verify the interpretations made by the researcher (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 114).

307). Fittingness, credibility, and auditability will be a better fit and more appropriate for qualitative studies (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 125). Fittingness gives a detailed description of the participants’ daily lives to prove the relevance of the research findings and can be used for relatable research and theory development (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 126). When adequate information is provided for the evaluation of data analysis, an accurate and in depth description of research findings are made which demonstrates fittingness. Credibility allows the researcher to verify their interpretations and accuracy of their perspective by returning for further interviews with the participants (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 126). Credibility also refers to how believable the research findings are or the true value of the study. The additional interviews following the examination of data analysis will broaden the study’s credibility. Auditability is the participant showing accountability of the information provided and the transfer of raw data into research findings (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2014, p. 126). During this study, a detailed description of the participants’ personal experience, environment, and circumstances will be given in a way that others can
