If one is not able to understand the argument, the credibility of the argument is compromised as the reader may not trust the argument if the author fails to make the information clear. Another weak point of the argument is the lack of total sources used. It is understandable that an argument in the form of a research paper is not effective, but more sources are needed to better qualify his claims. Including himself, Caplan used only three credible sources throughout the essay that provided one source supporting steroid usage, and one source against it. The information found in paragraphs seven through thirteen do not add to the total source count, as there is no mention of where the information was
The major premise does not have an exact number; instead it is suppressing relevant evidence. The minor premise is guilty of appealing to authority, where there is limited information about the “scientists”. The reader is left with no knowledge about their expertise or how closely related the “scientists” are to this topic. The premises are relevant as they are connected directly to the conclusion but they are not adequate. For example, more specific evidence could have been used instead thus making the argument a hasty prediction.
Descriptive theories accounts for and thoroughly describe a phenomenon. The framework of the Chronic Care Model and elements of the socio-ecological Model guided the development of the interview guide. The purpose of the study was to explore patient perceptions of patient-provider communication in cervical cancer related care among low-income English-and Spanish speaking women. The research design used in this research article is ethnographic research. Ethnographic research is a type of qualitative research that studies cultures.
Also, the articles he uses were not peer-reviewed. This can be seen at the end of his piece where the sources listed were merely just websites and not actual scientists or scientific articles. One can conclude that these sources are not credible and therefore not helpful in constructing his
The quality of care on the basis of nursing care insufficiency was also explored and indicated that a important relationship presented between quality care and patient safety ratings . ( Schubert et al 2012 ) . However , Nursing clinical rounds lead nurses to interact with patients, respond to their interest , and adjust the unsatisfying conditions. regular nursing rounds provide an opportunity to recognize patient needs by progress nursing procedures. Although hospitals worker various methods of rounds for hospitalized patients, the main components of all rounds are pain preventing, bathing, changing position, and environmental comfortable .
The universe itself does not have a clear purpose. Paley’s idea that both the universe and the watch have purpose is flawed, because while the watch was made to tell time, Paley’s concept of a universal purpose came from the Bible, which was written on the assumption that God exists. Therefore, it cannot be used to prove Paley’s point about purpose. It also does not make sense for some things to be made part of the universe, such as the blind spot in an eye, or vestigial structures like a tailbone in humans or hip bones in whales. These things do not have a purpose, and can even be damaging to the individual.
Introduction Since Nightingale’s Notes on Nursing was published in 1859 (Polit & Beck, 2012), nursing research with a focus on evidence-based practice has driven patient care practices and policies within healthcare facilities. At my facility, practice changes are driven through the Practice Council of the Shared Governance Council with support from the Research Council. Within the Organization The concept of these councils is to empower the nurses to lead change within the facility. One barrier to the continued success of the council is some ideas within the council become stagnant and do not disseminate. Often times, the bureaucracy involved in implementing a change within the hospital slows the process, increases workload of the change agent which ultimately loses council member buy-in.
Jacob Gross et al give mention to the fact that it is not a common trend for missing data to be rectified; in fact they stated that social science researches often ignore the issues surrounding missing data. They stressed on the need for researchers to not only develop a deep knowledge of why data are missing but to also be made aware of how to deal with missing data issues (S1). The inevitability of missing data has been mentioned in that; unplanned missing data inevitably introduces ambiguity into the inferences that can be drawn from the study (IS4). There are ways to rectify such; however, it is important to know the types of missing data that the research design has encountered. There may be and probably are multiple reasons for missing data in a given data set and any type of missing data can threaten validity of analyses
Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the main cause of death and the most common disease worldwide. The aim of this review is to find the effectiveness of clinical pharmacist interventions with in the secondary prevention of CHD, using studies conducted on patients with heart failure and coronary heart disease. The study is based on electronic search results. Studies included were reported direct care from a clinical pharmacist in CHD or CHD-related therapeutic areas in collaboration with other health care workers with the following outcomes: CHD control or mortality, CHD risk factor control, patient-related outcomes (knowledge, adherence, or quality of life), and cost related to health care systems. The 2 studies says by providing
Locate a study that is a secondary analysis. Why was this study conducted as a secondary analysis rather than a primary analysis? What were the sources of the data? How did this study contribute to nursing science? The study chosen discussed patients’ needs during the year after a suicide attempt.
In this article it does not seem to be very biased. The author is not really persuading the reader of anything, mostly informing and giving facts. In this article the thesis statement is kind of unclear. To my understanding it is how texting and driving seems to be getting worse. The author never really states exactly what he will be talking about.
Agustin not call anymore for his marital problems because it is obvious the department can’t do anything to help. However, in the interviews of both Mr. Agustin and Mrs. Vazquez, they could not shed any light on the incident and could not remember what was said or what took place. Aguiar’s recollections of the events were clear, concise and had intricate details that matched the facts which were in-line with routine patrol practices. Flores’ interviews were unclear and at times argumentative or confusing while lacking facts and clarity. Nonetheless, the lack of an audio recording or other supporting evidence to determine disrespectful conduct by Flores towards Aguiar, or Mr. Agustin, relies on two different accounts of the events.
However, many remain divided over whether or not this scan was constitutional, as there was no warrant at the time of the scan. The government’s actions were not constitutional, because they did not follow the precedent case, used technology that exceeded human senses, and violated DLK’s right to privacy in his home.
According to the letter from the clothing company Ms. Smith was diagnosed while hospitalized with code 295.10. This code indicates Ms. Smith has Disorganized Type Schizophrenia (4th ed., text rev. ; DSM–IV–TR; American Psychiatric Association, 2000) and is being treated with Risperidone an antipsychotic drug for schizophrenia symptoms (U.S. National Library of Medicine, 2012).
