Week 7 main discussion post Qualitative Research design Qualitative research investigates phenomenon from a holistic approach through flexible narrative designs. Qualitative data is information in a narrative form like interviews, and it aims to find patterns, themes, and categories of relationships (Polit & Beck, 2017). Post an APA citation for the article that you selected and provide a summary of the content The article I chose is “I Gotta Go With Modern Technology, So I’m Gonna Give ’em the Narcan”: The Diffusion of Innovations and an Opioid Overdose Prevention Program (Bowles & Lankenau, 2018). The article discusses opioid overdoses, and the importance of Narcan use to reverse opioid overdoses preventing death. The goal of the program was to disperse Narcan to addicts and non-addicts to carry with them so that in the even an overdose is witnessed they would have the capability of assisting. The Narcan kits were given freely with education on how to utilize them in the case of an emergency. Barriers to the disbursement of the kits were noted by addicts because they didn't want to stay for the training and lack of knowledge as to what Narcan was and its purpose. However, word of mouth traveled fast, and addicts started realizing that their fear of police and arrest during an overdose prevented them from calling 911 and providing help for the victim. Narcan provided them a way to intervene without calling the police and enabling them to save other addicts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
