Appropriate data collection is a critical component in obtaining useful data for your research. Using your proposed research topic and research questions, explain your plan for data collection. Discuss potential issues in your data collection plan and your plans to overcome these challenges. Then, respond to at least two or your classmates’ posts and analyze their plan for data collection. Are their plans appropriate for their research project? Do you have any suggestions for improvement?
My proposed research topic
In adult intensive care units (ICUs) (P), how does a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:1 (I) compared to a nurse-to-patient ratio of 1:2 or higher (C) affect patient mortality, healthcare-associated infections, and nurse job satisfaction (O) within a three-month timeframe (T)?
