Discussion: Study Question Proposal.
I don’t understand this Management question and need help to study.
Throughout this course, you will identify the steps in developing a research study. You will not be conducting the research or writing a full proposal; however, you will become familiar with the research process itself.
The research process contains many steps; the first is to identify a study question. Normally, a researcher will find a topic through personal or professional interest and direct it toward solving a problem. For the purpose of this course, you will select one of the topics presented below.
- Childhood diabetes
- Alcohol use in adolescents
- Skin cancer in young women
- Cardiovascular disease in the minority population
- Long-term care for patients with Alzheimer’s disease
- Cultural impact of posttraumatic stress disorder
- Opioid crisis
- Prescription drugs
- Climate change
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Select a topic to address from the list provided
- Read Chapter 2 of your textbook on developing a study question
- Read Chapter 1 of your textbook that deals with health research purposes
- Navigate the AHRQ, CCPH, and RAND corporation websites in the Learning Resources to learn more about research and information specific to your chosen topic
- Consider how you might develop a study question and move forward with the research process
