QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH METHODS EVALUATION AND STATISTICALAPPLICATIONS2IntroductionAfter overviewing the entire topic some of the search engines such as Google Scholarwill be used for gathering at least 4 contemporary peer-reviewed articles of thesis researchstudies that are mixed-methods or qualitative nature as suggested in the assignment.Furthermore, the articles will be completely related to the quality improvement in the publichealthcare settings. Firstly, the study will highlight the phenomenon of interest and summarizethe entire study. Secondly, the study will also discuss whether the population and sample thatwas used for the study were correct or not. Lastly, applications, limitations, conclusion, andresults will be summarized. However, a comparison will also be provided between theconclusions, results, and application of the four studies that are selected with regards to asummary paragraph. Additionally, the entire study will be accompanied by the PowerPointpresentation.DiscussionThe type of studyFour articles have been taken into account for performing the entire study with regards tothe quantitative methods used in these studies. Quantitative research is a method where themeasurable data is used for formulating some facts and uncovering patterns with regards to theresearch. However, the quantitative method that is used for the 4 studies mainly includes face toface interviews, online surveys, telephone interviews, systematic observations and the onlinepolls. It can be also said that the quantitative methods are largely used in the healthcare settings
QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH METHODS EVALUATION AND STATISTICALAPPLICATIONS3because the data collection method in the quantitative method is much more structured than thequalitative methods (Stellefson, Dipnarine, and Stopka, 2013).Sample population used correctly or notThe sample population that was used in the four studies was correct. It was observed thatthe studies combined the sampling strategies as it is correct for aiming the implementationresearch and more consistent with the current developments with regards to the quantitativemethods (Ozcan, 2014). Different type of people was chosen for conducting the studies. In oneof the study, it has been observed that the sampling according to the age group made it quiteeasier for the researchers to understand which age group has diabetes and chronic disease themost.Comparing results, applications, and conclusions among the four studiesThe results were quite different in the four studies even after using the same methodnamely the quantitative method. In one of the research, it has been observed that the order-entrysystem results decreased the costs of the pharmacy when it was introduced. In another researchresult, it has been witnessed that the Chronic Care Model is one of the most effective methodsfor managing diabetes when it was surveyed among the different age group of people (Brett andet al, 2014). Throwing light on the above-mentioned statement it can be said that both of theresults are quite different.Statistical method used in the studiesThe statistical methods that are used in the studies are as follows: The One-GroupPretest-Posttest Design, The One-Group Posttest-Only Design, The One-Group Pretest-Posttest
