Researchability and Feasibility: The proposed research problem is clearly defined. By using Bonnie Rogers article “Resarchability and Feasibility Issues in Conducting Research (1996)” I was able examine the researchability and feasibility of the proposed study effectively. Ifeel committed in conducting this research, as patient safety is a nurse’s responsibility. A mentor will be required, as I am a novice researcher. I have avoided making a complex design, and have a sampling plan that is easy to access. Approval from the health care regions authority, to access the safety learning reports will be obtained. Because nursing staff remains anonymous, there is no need to contact the nurses involved. The proposed study will benefit the nursing staff, nursingmanagement and most importantly, the patients. The time devoted for this research study will be six months in total, working on this research outside of hours worked as a staff nurse. The study will be conducted at the Alberta Children’s Hospital – and permission to do so will be obtained. The costs will be minimum – as computers will be supplied to us from the hospital. There are no safety or health concerns related to conducting this type of research. Patient identification will be
RESEARCH PROPOSAL7in the form of a number – not related to their health care number. Like mentioned previously, nursing staff will remain anonymous – the only information researchers will be able to see is the time the incident occurred, which unit/department, the name of the medication and if there were any adverse outcomes for the patient. After evaluating the researchability and feasibility of the research study, I am confident that this study will promote patient safety, and build on a stronger nursing practice. Throughout the planning of the proposed research study, I have gained further knowledgeof the challenges nursing researchers face. Deciphering between a quantitative or qualitative study has become clearer to me throughout this process. I altered my research question quite a few times, to make sure that it was strong – and that research would be accessible for my question. I imagine, that once a researcher has an idea to study, the question may evolve as the researchers gain more information from current literature. It was difficult for me to find current, related research articles for this study. I used the University’s library to obtain the two pieces of literature I cited in this paper. Even when I went outside of the Universities library to research, it was still difficult, and minimal information was available. This proves, that more research must be done on this topic. Conclusion:In this paper I discussed the relationship between night shift nurses, and the risk of their patients. Night shift nurses are at risk of making medication errors, due to fatigue, staffing issues and being overworked. This quantitative study examined submissions made by
