Running head: QUALITATIVE STUDY1Qualitative StudyAspen UniversityN494: Essential of Nursing ResearchDr. MarcuccilliDate of Submission April 20th, 2020
QUALITATIVE STUDYQualitative StudyQualitative research is defined as a type of research that provides information and insight about a subject[ CITATION ANA15 \l 1033 ]. It has the potential to give useful understandings and to improve the experience of healthcare[ CITATION Ten19 \l 1033 ]. Through qualitative research, new evidence for nursing practice can be generated and eventually contribute to knowledge development[ CITATION ANA15 \l 1033 ]. In module one, we had identified that hourly rounding could help prevent falls in hospitalized patients. For the assignment this week, the qualitative study article chosen is by Francis et al. (2019). We will discuss what type of qualitative study, the validity and credibility of the study, the implications, the effect on the readers (plausible, believable information), the results of the study, the design and significance ofthe study, the data collection and analysis. We will also review how the results can be applied in practice to improve patient care and outcome. LiteratureFrancis et al. (2019) in the International Archives of Nursing and Health Care discussed the nurses’ experiences and perceptions on the hourly rounding in a private acute care hospital in Australia. In the article, the authors lay out the methodology of the study and the results findings. The journal is a peer reviewed journal that publishes articles focusing on all aspects of nursing that promote quality of care and life. The article discussed the important effect of structured nursing rounds on patient outcome[ CITATION Bro46 \l 1033 ] (Francis, et al., 2019) The results from the study suggested the positive effect on reducing patient’s fall, but also discovered that there were barriers to implementing effective rounding. This article is a qualitative case study. Nurses were interviewed and data was collected and analyzed to generate the study results.
