2Rough Draft Qualitative Research Critique and Ethical ConsiderationsQualitative Research Critique Article OneBackground of the StudyThe author of this research used a pilot execution method to study the program whichwas implemented for Healthier Families and also to study the recreational sites within citiesin Georgia, Nevada and Michigan which are mainly frequented by people of different culturalorigins. The overall success outcome of the implementation of this study for healthierfamilies has been difficult to determine despite the use of evidenced based intervention,geared towards behavioral manipulations to promote health for members within thesecommunities. Among the 300 randomizes controlled trials used to help in health promotionand prevention of childhood obesity, a few trials were successful in enhancing the body massindex (BMI) of children but the general or overall outcome of the children sustaining to theprograms and interventions, proves difficult to evaluate. Unfortunately, the attempts made byhealthcare facilities to implement the proposed program and interventions were futile. Due tothe fall through of interventions, future studies must include in them, more rigorous methodsof ending childhood obesity by merging effective research with real world context and ensurehealth promotion continuity while assessing the effect of interventions. Methods of the StudyThe researchers used the acronym “RE-AIM” which stands for Reach, Effectiveness,Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance as a method of study for this researchframework. The goal of RE-AIM is to “encourage program planners, evaluators, readers ofjournal articles, founders, and policy-makers to pay more attention to essential programelements including external validity that can improve the sustainable adoption andimplementation of effective, generalizable, evidence-based interventions” (Re-aim.org).
