The interpretation of research in health care is essential to decision making. By understanding research, health care providers can identify risk factors,
trends, outcomes for treatment, health care costs and best practices. To be effective in evaluating and interpreting research, the reader must first understand
how to interpret the findings.
For this assignment:
Search the GCU Library and find three different health care articles that use quantitative research. Do not use articles that appear in the topic Resources or
textbook. Complete an article analysis for each using the “Article Analysis 1” template.
Refer to the “Patient Preference and Satisfaction in Hospital-at-Home and Usual Hospital Care for COPD Exacerbations: Results of a Randomised Controlled
Trial,” in conjunction with the “Article Analysis Example 1,” for an example of an article analysis.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using
APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
