Research study knowledge development
Conceptual definition general meaning of a concept
Operational definition the measurements used to observe or measure a variable

Quantitative research numeric data; test hypotheses; describe/test relationships (cause-effect); p value "statistics"
Qualitative research data are words; seeks understanding about meaning of human experience; grounded study; phenomenonology = key words; context
Review of literature to develop strong knowledge base to carry out a research study or an EBP project
Review of literature contributes to most steps of the research process develop conceptual/theoretical framework (primary et secondary sources); problem statement et hypothesis refinement; methodology (design, sample, instruments, procedure); outcome et analysis
refereed journals peer-reviewed, blind review by external reviewer(s); judged c a set of criteria
Independent variable (IV) X; the variable that has the presumed effect on the dependent variable (DV); IT IS MANIPULATED (INTERVENTION) OR NOT MANIPULATED (PLACEBO)

casual hypothesis cause et effect vs. associative
simple hypothesis relationship b/w 2 variables
complex hypothesis relationship b/w 3+ variables
directional hypothesis states which way the relationship should exist
nondirectional hypothesis states the relationship exists, but no teh direction
null (H0) hypothesis statistical hypothesis
research (H1 or Hx) hypothesis directional or nondirectional; alternative hypothesis

wording the hypothesis variables to be tested; population to be studied; design to be used (may be implied); outcomes predicted
Steps of EBP ask clinical question; systematic search of literature; critical appraisal of the research et synthesis of findings; integrate evidence, clinical expertise et pt preference to implement a decision; evaluate the outcome
