Running head: METHODOLOGY: ADULT OBESITY Methodology: Adult Obesity Arturo Irvine South University Submission Date 1 METHODOLOGY: ADULT OBESITY 2 Introduction The methodology section of any research study depicts the method of reasoning for the utilization of meticulous systems or procedures used to recognize, select, and dissect data connected to the comprehension of a research issue, in this manner, permitting the reader to fundamentally assess a study’s general legitimacy and unwavering quality. The main reason for the methodology section of a research study is ultimately to answer two fundamental inquiries. One being that of how was the information gathered or constructed and how was it analyzed (Troy, Miller, Olson, & Institute of Medicine (U.S.), 2011)? Nursing Research Proposal
Conversely, obesity has been a target of discrimination and stigmatized between the obese patient and that of health care professionals. Therefore, the ideal research methodology for this study on obesity-related communication barriers of healthcare professionals will utilize the following sample/ setting, sampling strategy and research design. Sample/Setting The setting of the study was conducted in two settings, one being that of primary care facility and the second setting being that of community-based health care facilities (Moorhead et al., 2013). Nursing Research Proposal
The sample population would include FNPs and public health nurses, since they are the ones who seem to have the most face-to-face contact with obese patients. The inclusion criteria would be of participants that are currently employed (male or female) in a clinical area within one of the two target settings and are willing to participate in the study. All participants will be provided with informed consent. The exclusion criterion would be not being able to provide the informed consent (Moorhead et al., 2013). METHODOLOGY: ADULT OBESITY 3 Sampling Strategy The sample strategy utilized is a convenience sample of participants via online and printed advertisements, such as newsletters and bulletins, which would be posted through nursing professional organizations, social media sites and newspapers that would invite participants to be part of the study (Moorhead et al., 2013). Research Design The researcher of this study utilized a quantitative research design that consist of a survey, which was provided to participants via a hard copy or online. Surveys draw in social affair information from very huge gatherings of individuals through the utilization of calling, interviews, and questionnaires. Obviously, there are two sorts of a surveys: before and then after. One survey is provided to the participants prior to the actual experience or event and then again after the action or experience of the participants. The one shot survey is connected to an example of people at a specific time. Nursing Research Proposal
For this current research the utilization of surveys to assemble information is a perfect type of research methodology. Conclusion The methodology section of a research study consist of the means of collecting and analyzing data that the reader may understand and possibly duplicate. This research study has demonstrated the sample/ setting of the study being that of primary care and community based health facilities and the sample would be that of employed FNPs and public health nurses. The sample strategy utilized in this study was a convenience sample, which was the means of recruiting participants for the study. And last but not least, the research design used within this METHODOLOGY: ADULT OBESITY study consist of a quantitative survey, which would allow for the research to identify the before and after effects of the participants. 4 METHODOLOGY: ADULT OBESITY 5 References Moorhead, S.
