NURS 6003 Part 4 Research Analysis Sample Assignment
I have identified one topic of interest for further study. I have researched and identified one peer-reviewed research article focused on this topic and have analyzed this article. The results of these efforts are shared below.
Directions: Complete Step 1 by using the table and subsequent space below identify and analyze the research article you have selected. Complete Step 2 by summarizing in 2-3 paragraphs the results of your analysis using the space identified.
Step 1: Research Analysis
Complete the table below
|Topic of Interest:||Health Literacy|
|Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI)||Farmanova, E., Bonneville, L., & Bouchard, L. (January 01, 2018). Organizational health literacy: Review of theories, frameworks, guides, and implementation issues. Inquiry (United States), 55. https://doi.org/10.1177/0046958018757848|
|Professional Practice Use:
One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article
|Integrated care seeking to integrate cultural competence and health literacy using Rawls’s theory of justice.
Kurt Lewin’s theory has been suggested to identify and eliminate barriers to services, information, and care to improve health literacy.
|Research Analysis Matrix
Add more rows if necessary
|Strengths of the Research||Limitations of the Research||Relevancy to Topic of Interest||Notes|
|Coherent and logical rationales for conducting the study.
|The study limited to a specific library type of studies, that is, in specialty or in the area of interest.||The rationale for the research question gives the purpose of the study to generate evidence and answer research question related to health literacy.||The rationales reflect on the addition of knowledge by filling a gap in the understanding and resolution of controversies to remedy some particular problem.|
|Concrete description of design, procedures, methods, analyses and accurate reports of findings.
|Limited evidence about the efficacy of health literacy guides.||Plausible interpretations and conclusion based on findings related to health literacy guides.||Organizational health literacy need a clear and robust connection between vision, operationalization, and implementation strategy to patient care.|
Step 2: Summary of Analysis
Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following:
- Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research
- Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research
- Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research
I would recommend the article by Farmanova, Bonneville, and Bouchard (2018) to inform practice based on two rationales. First, grounded on the foundation of the research question. The question reflects an addition of knowledge concerning health literacy by persuading the reader that the selection of the research question is non-trivial and follows an existing literature on the topic. The other rationale is based on the methods used to justify the intended suitability for producing reliable and valid evidence to answer the research question. In addition, the authors typically present the Method section, where the process of conducting the study is given clearly. Moreover, results and analyses provide consistent responses to the study question and data collected. Hence, the study is reliable and valid for a scientific research.

Step 2: Summary of Analysis
My approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research involves activities such as identification, understanding,
recording, meaning-making, and information transmission of articles to a topic of interest. The search starts by seeking and examining peer-reviewed publications with information from the course readings. Most scholarly research articles are found in journals (Simmons et al., 2020). Then it would proceeds looking for clues to indicate that the author(s) is a researcher or scholar. I pay closer attention to authors’ credential written behind their names. Next is to check whether the original purpose of the article is for the original research or to further the readers’ understanding about a given topic. Another proper strategy is locating the methods section by paying attention to key words like peer-reviewed, qualitative, and quantitative.
Strategies that I find effective in locating peer-reviewed research is to use a specific database that is particular to an area of study. Consequently, it is essential to plan the research while highlighting key words pulled from the research question. As there are a number of articles, it becomes helpful to make use of filters to narrow down the searches for the previous five years and to provide full-text articles. One important thing about using Walden University Library is the separation of databases based on one’s academic year of study. I choose to use CINAHL Plus since it has journals tailored for nursing and other health professionals. For that reason, I intend to use CINAHL as it is user-friendly and allows one to choose only peer-reviewed articles. The site also has an excellent webinar transcript to show how to navigate by using main and subtopics for narrowing down the search. NURS 6003 Part 4 Research Analysis
