Utilize Pubmed or other research tools for your literature search
Using the above:
Write a brief Background and Significance statement related to your research question
Formulate a research question and explain how it meets the FINER and PICOT criteria
Develop a hypothesis and explain how it is testable and falsifiable. Specify the independent and dependent variables.
add references and avoid plagiarism when answering this: Using the study protocol content listed in Richesson & Andrews Chapter 10 (Table 10.2), create a protocol for your non-experimental study. Include the following topics in your protocol:
Hypothesis (from the previous prompt)
Patient eligibility: include your inclusion/exclusion criteria and describe the type and source of data you will need to identify the patients
Study design: specify the type of study (refer to Module 1), provide rationale for selection and details
Recruitment: describe the informatics approach you will use to recruit participants
Having written the protocol with and without an informatics tool, reflect on your experience. You can use the following questions as guidelines but do not need to restrict your response to them.
