I observed that nurse researchers are held in high esteem by the younger nurses and student nurses who are mentored by the nurses. In clinical areas, I educate my patients based or recent findings that will improve nursing care. I have realized that a major barrier to evidence best practice in our profession is lack of research reports and articles because of the difficulties involved in accessing such reports and articles. 6.2 SOCIAL CONTEXT The body of knowledge underlying nursing needs to be extended and nurses must learn to make decisions which have a research base. Research is costly in terms of money, time, energy and expertise.
The relationship between the actual study and the researchers’ preconceptions is well explained and proven in support of their argument. Although the sample size chosen was appropriate enough on the basis of age, gender and culture, it would have provided a better result to generalize if participants from some other cultures like Asia or Middle East would have been included. The selection of participants on the basis of the criteria of minimum of one year of suffering was good, showing validity of results. The guideline of grounding in examples is explained very well by the authors as they provided the process of interviewing and put in an appropriate amount of information relating to the responses received. The article also provides in-depth details of the responses by providing examples and explanations and the data was very well interpreted and represented.
In the process of conducting research, they are exposed to many threats which include physical threat. This form of threat is evident in violent research settings (Lee, 1993). This could be presentational where the researcher’s presence incites hostility towards the research, the research participant and any other person or anonymous where the research is in a dangerous environment to conduct research. An ethical approach to circumventing or dealing with this threat is to withdraw from the research setting and resort to secondary data for the research and none reactive sources. This however has an impact on originality of research since researchers may not be able to obtain primary data which is rich in content and detail for a research.
So that, it is not enough time to study the past research journal to done this research. 4. Lack of available or reliable data The limit of available or reliable data can make the research become conflict. The research maybe not accurate with the real situation that happen. To conduct a research, the researcher need access to all source as many as possible to get an accurate
In most cases, descriptive research is directed by the experiences and expectations of the author (Saunders et al, 2009). Justification of Research Design While selecting the research design, the researcher prioritised explanatory research as the most compatible design for this research due to the argument made by Blaikie (2009) that theories, which are not justified as existing theory, can gain stability and logical satisfaction through explanation. This argument best matches the objective of this research to develop new idea and policy framework for the policy makers in Bangladesh based on the existing human capital theory and triple helix model of university-industry-government relations. Another justification for choosing explanatory research design is that it establishes relationships among different facts (Blaikie, 2009); and one of the basic tasks of this research is to
3.0 Introduction Research in common parlance refers to a search for knowledge. It is the process of collecting, analyzing and interpreting information to answer questions. The research process must have certain characteristics: it must, as far as possible, be controlled, rigorous, systematic, valid, verifiable and critical (Panneerselvam, 2004). This chapter will deal with how the research is going to be carried out, that is the survey methods, the communication approach and the sampling methods that are going to be used. A research correctly designed and undertaken, builds knowledge because it represents an objective investigation of facts about a certain subject.
Although during the early and mid-1900s few nurses contributed to this foundation initiated by Nightingale, the nursing profession has more recently provided major leadership for improving care through application of research findings in practice. The plea that each nurse must care enough about her own practice ensure it is based on the best possible information is not new. Recognition of importance of use of evidence from research in order to rationalize nursing interventions cannot be over emphases. Nursing research encompasses a holistic approach and views the treatment of patient, family members and caregivers as a whole. By utilizing this holistic approach, quality of care is enhanced and the patient will receive the best care at minimum cost.
A good research methodology will not only ensure that the research objective is realised but will also generate fresh ideas for future studies. This chapter focuses on research methods and instruments used in studying the migration of medical doctors from the public sector to the private sector and the research questions were addressed accordingly. 4.2 RESEARCH PHILOSOPHY The accomplishment of a research study based on definite techniques can validate it as a good study (Salmon, 2003). The direction of research
2.3 Reflection on the value of research Introduction Salkind (2012, p. 64) defines research as “an intensive activity that is based on the work of others and generates new ideas to pursue and questions to answer.” Research is all about gathering necessary information, to find the truth, to bring about change, improve standards of living and to explore the specific area of study. Galpin, Hazelhurst, Mueller, and Sanders (1999) pointed out that “the ability to do research is an extremely important attribute for any academic and can be of great value to any professional person”. As stated in Iloveindia (2015), research is not just a process that is confined to the study of scientific discipline. It can as well as cater to whatever other discipline,
