Week 8 main discussion post Introduction The first step in any research is to develop the research question and then choose the design type. Once this has been done you must decide how you are going to obtain the information that you need. The method that is chosen could be a face-face, interviews, pencil and paper, electronic surveys that are e-mail or web-based, telephone surveys or windshield survey (Keough & Tanabe, 2011). The method you choose will depend on how much time you want to invest in obtaining the information, how fast you need the information, the population size, the demographic size, and finally resources to conduct the survey. In this scenario of a primary care clinic located in a suburban neighborhood experiences about 10,000 patients annually to be seen. The clinic is interested in the patient’s point of view of what they like, what they do not care for, and what improvements could be made to make their visit more enjoyable. To do this, we need to create questions that will give us feedback in the shortest amount of time without much effort on behalf of the patient. The questions are: 1.) What was the reason for your appointment today? (Multiple Choice) o Lab/X-ray/CT/MRI o Nurse practitioner o Doctor o Physical Therapy 2.) When you arrived were you greeted promptly with a warm and friendly greeting? (Dichotomous) o Yes o No 3.) After checking in how many minutes did you wait after your appointment time to be called back to the exam room? (Multiple Choice)

    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.
