Review
Review

  • Research Philosophies and Paradigms

    • Positivist

    • Naturalistic

    • Postpositivist

    • Critical Theory

    • Other perspectives (feminist)


Aims of research paradigms
Aims of research paradigms

  • Positivist

    • Understanding underlying cause

    • One reality

    • Scientific methodology – deductive – theory proven by data

    • Empirical evidence (rooted in objective reality, not hunches)

    • Systematic

    • Numeric data

    • Generalizable

    • Problematic when trying to answer questions of moral or ethical perspective

    • Humans are not just facts and figures, but are complex.

    • Too narrow, too rigid at times.

    • Measurement is problematic for some concepts


  • Naturalistic

    • Explore the ‘humanist’ perspective

    • Not reductionist, but expansive, flexible

    • Multiple realities

    • Focuses on understanding human experience, not necessarily answering all questions about it

    • Takes time

    • Occurs in the ‘natural setting’ – or “field”

    • Inductive (observation or data to theory) – framework which helps explain process

    • Humans are the collection instrument

    • Personal and subjective – can be problematic

    • Typically smaller groups – generalizability not seen


Component 1
COMPONENT 1

  • Consists of :

    • Area of interest

    • Background to the problem you have identified

    • Reason this should be researched (link to practice)

    • Problem statement (s)

    • Research Question(s)

    • References

      2 – 3 pages


  • Area of Interest

    Why do you want or why should this area be explored ?

    • new problem you encountered in practice, or in reading

    • Something you saw which has you thinking why? Or who? Or what?

    • Needs to be something which can be impacted by nursing (clinical, education, or administration)


Background to problem
BACKGROUND TO PROBLEM

  • What is known

  • Current practices

  • Will require some reading of literature


Reason this should be researched
REASON THIS SHOULD BE RESEARCHED

  • ? Practice implications

  • Ethical implications

  • Knowledge development in nursing


Problem statement s
PROBLEM STATEMENT(S)

  • Addresses the issue

  • Takes into account the background

  • Addresses a gap seen

  • Is specific but not focused


Research question s
RESEARCH QUESTION(S)

  • Focused

  • Specific

  • Address what is being researched

  • Variables


References
REFERENCES

  • APA 6TH ED

  • If you used any references, and YOU should b/c we are not just going by hunches here.


Apa game
Apa game

  • Groups of 3 – 4

  • Each group has 1 reference.

  • Reassemble and write out on board
