Research Problems and Purpose Statements for Hospital Aquired Infections

Description

Select a hospital-acquired condition (HAC) that is relevant to a health care context with which you are familiar. Create a 2- to 3-page report that includes the research-based explanation of the background of a problem associated with your chosen HAC, as well as develop appropriate research problem and purpose statements.

This assessment has three distinct parts.

Part 1: Background and Evidence

Relevant Scoring Guide Criteria:

  • Explain the background of a given research problem based on information in the literature.
  • Apply evidence-based information to support the development of a given research problem.
  • Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.

For this section you will need to select one or more hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) from the list of Hospital-Acquired Conditions created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). From your readings and independent research you will compose a background explanation of the HAC and how it is manifesting as an issue in a health care setting of your choice. You will also be creating an evidence-based rationale for why it is important to further study this particular HAC.

This first section should be one to two pages, with support from the literature for the background of the issue, the importance of the problem within the context of your chosen health care setting, and support for your purpose in pursuing your research project.

Part 2: Problem Statement

Relevant Scoring Guide Criteria:

  • Develop a problem statement based on relevant literature.
  • Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.

For this part you will create a problem statement that developed out of your review of the literature related to the HAC(s). This problem statement will help to inform the research questions; you will develop these further in Assessments 2 and 3 and include them in your work for Assessment 4.

A well-written problem statement should be one or two sentences.

Problem Statement Checklist:

Identify the problem that led to the research.

  • Is it easy to determine?
  • Were there identifying words that justify the problem?
  • Was the rationale or justification of the problem clearly stated?
  • Do the words in the problem statement indicate the kind of study performed? What words in particular?
  • Was the evidence for the problem provided in the literature?
Part 3: Purpose Statement

Relevant Scoring Guide Criteria:

  • Formulate a purpose statement supported by a review of the literature.
  • Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others and is consistent with expectations for health care professionals.

For this part, you will develop your purpose statement, which will clearly lay out what you would hope to accomplish as you work towards addressing the problem you have identified. Purpose statements should be grounded in the evidence and indicate the kind of study that will be performed. This purpose will help to inform the research questions you will develop in Assessments 2 and 3 and include in your work for Assessment 4.

A well-written purpose statement should be one or two sentences in length.

Purpose Statement Checklist:

Identify the purpose that led to the research study.

  • What does the study hope to accomplish? What are the desired outcomes?
  • Was the rationale or justification of the purpose clearly stated?
  • Do the words in the purpose statement indicate the kind of study performed? What words in particular?
  • Was the item cited as evidence for the purpose published within the last five years?
