What are the results?

For QUANTITATIVE studies these should include both a numerical statement of the results (actual value, odds ratio, relative risk, etc.) and a statement of the statistical significance of the result (p-value or confidence interval).

Are the results statistically significant (p-values)? Why?

What is the conclusion? Do the results support the hypothesis?

 Research questions

  1. Propose two quantitative research questions that test interventions to address your problem. For each question list each PICO element and then write out your research question. Consider the evidence-based practice (EBP) strategies you discussed in assignment 3 and what you learned from these research studies as you develop your research questions. Research questions should include the PICO elements and include innovative strategies that haven’t been thoroughly researched. For example, don’t propose researching exercise as a strategy to reduce weight. Consider the various personal and public factors that contribute to your health problem as you develop your intervention. Research questions and interventions can be focused at the individual or community level.
