All I needed was what test to run with the stated hypotheses. Can you help. Thanks
While nurses share many risk factors with the general population there are specific and unique factors that may increase their risk of developing a substance use disorder. The ready availability of medications is an occupational hazard. Nurses may self-diagnose and self- medicate physical pain or stress in order to continue to work. Attitudes of believing drugs are a way of coping and promoting healing as well as feeling invulnerable to the harms of substance use may heighten the odds of developing a substance use disorder. Furthermore, a lack of education about the addictive process and how to recognize the signs and symptoms is one of the greatest risks. Awareness and prevention is needed among nurses. Self-awareness and management programs may have the potential to decrease substance use among nurses and encourage users to seek help. The purpose of this quality improvement project is to assess various aspects of a self-awareness/management program that is under development.
This study has of a sample of 73 nurses from one facility. A baseline questionnaire obtained work information (e.g., hours worked, specialty, and main duties), personal characteristics (e.g, age, gender, marital status) as well as information on their attitudes and knowledge about substance use disorders, and a few health indicators (e.g. physical pain/exhaustion, stress levels, and signs of substance misuse). Participants were encouraged to complete quarterly rating of their physical pain/exhaustion and stress levels to increase their awareness of changes in their health. Each of these concepts were assessed via short scales using likert type responses (Cronbach's alpha=.75 and .89 respectively).
Step 1: list the appropriate descriptive data of all the variables.
What are the statistical test to run for of the following hypotheses
1. There is an association between main duty and substance misuse.
2. There is a correlation and predictive relationship between the number of hours worked and physical pain/exhaustion score.
3. The mean physical pain/exhaustion score differs by specialty.
4. There is a predictive relationship between the number of hours worked and baseline stress score while also controlling for age and main duty.
5. An individual's follow-up stress scores will differ from baseline stress scores.
answer the following:
a) What is the statistical test you chose and why was this particular test chosen? Be sure to indicate which hypothesis was chosen and if the assumptions for the statistical test you choose are met.
b) State the null hypothesis and perform your analysis
c) Summarize your findings (OK to include excel summary output tables) and indicate if you found support for the null hypothesis or not.
Step 3: Step 3: How would I represent them. Ex. Logistic regression. Linear regression. Scatter plot, one way Anova etc
