Week 8 Discussion Post Data is used to evaluate outcomes by analyzing whether a certain intervention is effective in giving the desired outcome. According to the dictionary, an outcome is “the way a thing turns out; a consequence”.

Our desired outcome is to have his hypertension lower, we put that patient on a beta blocker, we tell that patient to take the beta blocker every day for a month and we ask that patient to come back to the clinic to be re-evaluated.

    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.
