Research critique paper

Research Critique Part II
Critique the same preapproved research study you used for Research Critique Part I. Do not paraphrase the actual elements of the study. Write them exactly the way the author did. You should, however paraphrase terms you are asked to define. Use the Polit and Beck (2018) textbook to critique and explain/define the terms for each aspect of the study. The last paragraph of each chapter (beginning with chapter 4) discusses how to critique a specific aspect of the study. It is followed by a green box with critiquing guidelines. Appendix D presents a study and then a sample critique of that study.

Write in narrative form (full sentences). Use six level one headings to organize the paper. APA format required.

When doing a research critique, it is acceptable to put the reference for the article on the bottom of the title page. Do not cite the article within the body of the paper. All other resources (such as the Polit and Beck textbook) must be cited and referenced as usual.

I. Research Design    
Identify and define the overall type of research design that was used in your study (quantitative or qualitative). If qualitative, identify the specific type of research design (phenomenological, ethnography, grounded theory, etc.) and provide a brief description of it. If quantitative, identify the specific type of research design (true experimental, quasi-experimental, or non-experimental) and provide a brief description of it.
 II. Sample and Setting
Who is the target population? 
What are the inclusion (eligibility) and/or exclusion criteria?
How was the sample selected? Was it a probability (random) sample or a non-probability (non-random) sample? Define the terms. 
What is the setting and is it appropriate for the study?
III. Ethical Considerations
Was the study approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) or Ethics Committee?
 What is the purpose of an IRB?
Was informed consent obtained in this study?
Discuss four of the major elements of informed consent. (This info will not be found in the study. Use the textbook).
IV. Data Collection 
What tools/instruments were used to collect the data (surveys, questionnaires, interviews, etc.)? Are the tools clearly described? 
Were reliability and validity of the research instruments addressed in the study? Define reliability and validity as it pertains to research instruments.
V. Results
Identify and briefly discuss one of the inferential statistical tests used to analyze the data (not the descriptive statistics used to describe the characteristics of the sample). Was the result statistically significant?
VI. Discussion/Conclusions
Did the researcher discuss the important study findings? What were they?
Are the current findings compared to the findings of previous research?
Did the researcher identify any study limitations? What were they?
What recommendations for future research studies were made? 
What implications for nursing practice, education, or health care policy did the researcher identify?
