Schenita Randolph, Tanya Coakley, Jeffrey Shears
BACKGROUND: Improving the health of black and minority ethnic (BME) men in the US continues to be a public health priority. Compared with men of other races and ethnicities, African-American men have higher rates of mortality and morbidity from chronic illness and diseases including cancer, heart disease, prostate cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS. One way to address these disparities is to include African-American men in health research, to elicit their perspectives on health risks and protective factors...

#6
Catherine Delves-Yates, Andrea Stockl, Jenny Moore
BACKGROUND: Concept analysis is frequently the first step novice nurse researchers take when beginning their work. However, the value of concept analysis in generating theory is debated, and although there are many models researchers can use, few provide guidance for applying them or overviews of their philosophical underpinnings. AIM: To share learning about challenges encountered when undertaking concept analysis and to present an adaptation of Rodgers ( 1989 ) model created to overcome these...

Lisa Wirihana, Anthony Welch, Moira Williamson, Martin Christensen, Shannon Bakon, Judy Craft
BACKGROUND: Phenomenology is a useful methodological approach in qualitative nursing research. It enables researchers to put aside their perceptions of a phenomenon and give meaning to a participant's experiences. Exploring the experiences of others enables previously unavailable insights to be discovered. AIM: To delineate the implementation of Colaizzi's ( 1978 ) method of data analysis in descriptive phenomenological nursing research. DISCUSSION: The use of Colaizzi's method of data analysis enabled new knowledge to be revealed and provided insights into the experiences of nurse academics teaching on satellite campuses...

#10
Kate O'Reilly, Kath Peters, Nathan Wilson, Cannas Kwok
BACKGROUND: Although more men than women sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), approximately one quarter of people with TBIs are women. The experiences of TBI reported in the literature are informed from the masculine perspective and do not adequately represent women's experiences. Pragmatism provides an overarching methodological framework to explore and critique a broader perspective of health, including psychosocial, cultural, spiritual, political and environmental factors, while attempting to address gender inequity...

https://www.readbyqxmd.com/read/29546962/introduction-to-positivism-interpretivism-and-critical-theory
#11
Gemma Ryan
BACKGROUND: There are three commonly known philosophical research paradigms used to guide research methods and analysis: positivism, interpretivism and critical theory. Being able to justify the decision to adopt or reject a philosophy should be part of the basis of research. It is therefore important to understand these paradigms, their origins and principles, and to decide which is appropriate for a study and inform its design, methodology and analysis. AIM: To help those new to research philosophy by explaining positivism, interpretivism and critical theory...

Marcella Kelly, Maura Dowling, Michelle Millar
BACKGROUND: Kuhn's ( 1962 ) acknowledgement of a paradigm as a way that scientists make sense of their world and its reality gave recognition to the idea of 'paradigm shift'. This shift exposes the transience of paradigm development shaped by societal and scientific evolution. This ongoing evolutionary development provides the researcher with many paradigms to consider regarding how research is undertaken and the search for understanding achieved. AIM: An understanding of paradigm development is necessary when planning a study and can shape the search for understanding...

#14
Helen Sisson
BACKGROUND: The formulation of a research question is a vital first step in the research process and the significance of this is well reported in the literature; a well-structured question increases the outcome of useable findings. To aid the development of a research question, a number of frameworks in the form of mnemonics have been identified. It is suggested that the application of these mnemonics may result in confusion rather than provide helpful guidance. AIM: To present an overview of some of the mnemonically identified frameworks and consider how they may support the development of a research question...

#15
Rhonda Lynne Wilson, Kim Usher
BACKGROUND: The development of a recruitment strategy requires nurse researchers to consider the avenues available to them to fully investigate a phenomenon. In many cases, this will mean that they invite members of the public to be participants in their research. Successfully advertising the research project to potential participants requires a targeted approach, so that the participants will contribute to a data set that is sufficiently representative and analysis will elicit answers to the research questions...

#17
Julia Petty
BACKGROUND: 'Emotion work' is a term used to describe the emotional responses that may arise in qualitative research exploring difficult experiences. Parents' experiences of neonatal care can raise sensitive issues during interviews, which may lead to emotional responses. AIM: To reflect on an interpretive study involving narrative interviews with parents of preterm neonates, to inform researchers about the potential emotive issues that may arise in such work. DISCUSSION: Reflection on interviews with parents of preterm neonates revealed areas for discussion relating to emotion work, the role of the researcher, emotional connections and empathic interviewing...

Anna Green, Tim Luckett, Penelope Abbott, Michelle DiGiacomo, John Delaney, Patricia Delaney, Patricia Mary Davidson
BACKGROUND: Asset-informed approaches are increasingly emphasised in public health, but transferring this approach to planning health services requires prospective systematic methods. Asset-informed approaches to service-mapping have started to develop, but there are no standardised guidelines. These methods are becoming of particular interest, as nurses engage in population health activities. AIM: To identify methods of asset-informed mapping for addressing health problems and develop a framework to support the methodological rigour of service-mapping...

#19
Caroline Jane Picton, Lorna Moxham, Christopher Patterson
BACKGROUND: Historically, mental health research has been strongly influenced by the underlying positivism of the quantitative paradigm. Quantitative research dominates scientific enquiry and contributes significantly to understanding our natural world. It has also greatly benefitted the medical model of healthcare. However, the more literary, silent, qualitative approach is gaining prominence in human sciences research, particularly mental healthcare research. AIM: To examine the qualitative methodological assumptions of phenomenology to illustrate the benefits to mental health research of studying the experiences of people with mental illness...
