In connection with their mission to provide great care for their patients and families, they have developed, with the help of over 1,000 patients, families, caregivers and community partners, a Patient Declaration that depicts, in the patients’ words, what the patients value at a great hospital. I think this is a wonderful thing to have and it assists St. Michaels to better understand and meet the patients’ expectations. This declaration includes things like wanting clear communication, being treated with respect, having a clean environment, knowing the staff are highly skilled and having access to nutritious food. St. Michaels, as with most hospitals, surveys their patients on numerous topics concerning the care they received. St. Michael’s is required to report on some of the topics, including Patient Satisfaction.
The key factor in exploratory research is to give the researchers relevant information and help them form a hypotheses about the topic. On the other hand, descriptive research is done with a specific question already made up when the research was started. The question gives direct view of the subject. Exploratory and descriptive studies have their own strengths when it comes to forming a better understanding of a problem, researchers that can understand the difference between these two methods can make a study more effective. As for the study that was being conducted in the book, the study had to be exploratory not descriptive.
Task 1 Factual texts are that the thing we read is based on facts. The facts are true and reliable. Facts cannot come out of nothing, so they are based on research and studies. Reading texts will to teach us more about the real life, it can be especially the thing you are interested in. Unlike fictional texts, the factual texts are based on facts, and not things that amazes our brain and imagination.A important rules before you writing a factual texts is the text should be based on recent studies,and it must be written in an interesting way so the reader can easily read and understand the text.
Summary (min 200 words) Using standardized terminologies in nursing practice has a wide array of advantages to the patients, the organization involved, the nursing profession and even the country using the standards. These terminologies aid the healthcare organization (both the care team and administrators) in deciding which nursing terminology or a combination of several that suits their needs. With these terminologies: Patients benefit from improved communication between members of the care team Or... ... middle of paper ... ... to ensure that it meets their individual organizational needs, be it acute care, hospice care, general practice or even subspecialty care.

The problem that comes from specific informed consent cannot be addressed solely by demanding more rigorous standard for research (Truog et al. 1999). The treatments should not involve more risks compared to any of the alternatives (Truog et al. 1999). This means that if a treatment has more negative outcomes compared to an alternative treatment then you must obtain informed consent.
A thorough pre assessment as well as follow up was also completed. As a result of a dedication of this team, Lehigh Valley also had results that mimicked the results of the national study. These results give merit to the original study and as a result more and more organizations are incorporating hourly rounding into their daily practice.

The data obtained during the the research does not have any meaning if it is not processed, analyzed and presented in a systematic manner. Data analysis in qualitative research is inductive and sustainable. Qualitative data analysis is the process of systematically search for and compile the data obtained from questionnaires, interviews, field notes , and other materials so it is easy to understand in order to be informed as result of study (Sahid, 2011). Qualitative data is very subjective, therefore, a researcher who uses qualitative data must actually be tried wherever possible to avoid subjective attitude which may blurs the objectivity of the
(C. Merriam, 1941, pg890) In other words, something should be considered research when it adds to what we already know, especially if it does so through adding facts to out structure of knowledge. Obviously, this is but one definition of research, there being much contention over what research actually is, or what should constitute research, however, as a simple definition, this should suffice. This being the cases, what is the purpose of research and what do we gain from it? Wilson Gee writes in “The Research Spirit” that he believes the purpose of research is to advance the human cause, “it is not strange that the world appraises so highly the research spirit which has led it through the darkness of a past into the light of a present and will still guide it on beyond a golden dawn of a future” (Wilson Gee, 1915, pg 95-98). He believed the primary purpose of research itself was to search for the truth bringing to light new facts as well as reinterpreting old ones.
To learn how to research could open the way to the discovery of the craft of research, which will be always relevant and never complicated. With this concept in mind people could explore their ability to create and develop a coherent research question in order to identify the truth: “Experienced researchers know that they must do more than convince us that their answer is sound. They must also show us why their question was worth asking, how its answer, help us understand some bigger issue in a new way.” This concept could reveal the real strong philosophy on research and its
Researcher would not be required to give up one for the other when faced with the selection of research paradigms or methodologies. || The advantages of the mixed method would eventually provide stronger evidences for the conclusion of the research through the corroboration of the findings.
