A requirement of this course is to complete a critique of Qualitative Research. The purpose of this paper is to critique one qualitative research article in terms of the design elements and study trustworthiness.
Use the attached template to complete the assignment – please type answers directly in the document under each question(s) that has a point assigned (Please leave grade and total columns blank; instructor will use this area to assess):
For the qualitative critique, please use attached article which is :
Leung, D., Esplen, M. J., Peter, E., Howell, D., Rodin G., & Fitch M. (2012) How haematological cancer nurses experience the threat of patients’ mortality. Journal of Advanced Nursing 68(10), 2175–2184. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2648.2011.05902.x Click here to download article.
To complete the assignment, follow the pages in your text book in box 5.3 (pp. 112-117). Text book is : Polit, D. F., & Beck, C. T. (2012). Nursing research: Generating and assessing evidence for nursing practice (9th ed.). Philadelphia, PA: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins
Be sure to spend some time addressing strategies to enhance trustworthiness including credibility, dependability, transferability, and confirmability.
Some of the responses will require a one sentence answer, while some may require a longer answer and the need to support your answers with content from the study or from your text. Credit will not be given for one answer replies such as yes or no. Try to be direct and concise and avoid excessive wordiness. Offer your response and support it with a reference when appropriate. If a question does not apply write n/a and describe why i.e. if asked a question re: grounded theory and the content does not apply to a grounded theory you would write: n/a this is a phenomenological study.
When referencing material, either in the form of a direct quote or paraphrasing the content from the article or you text, please follow APA format for in text citations. Include your references in APA format at the end of your critique.
For this assignment, you will use the Leung, et al. study and your Polit and beck text book.
Remember the questions are asking if the researchers addressed the content rather than what you believe was included – the critique is from the perspective of the content presented in the study.
Although APA requires all work to be double-spaced, for this assignment, you may single space your answers.
Please leave a line or two between each question in the assignment as this will prevent crowding and missing content (help you answer each question that has a point assigned) and facilitate grading.
