Qualitative Data Analysis The aim of this Reusable Learning Object (RLO) is to give you an idea of how qualitative data analysis is done. It's aimed at students studying evidence based practice or research methods, with a basic understanding of what qualitative research is. Research, EBP, Evidence-Based Medicine, qualitative research View further information on this RLO.
What is Evidence Based Practice? This RLO introduces the concept of evidence based practice and explains, in outline, how evidence based practice is done. EBP, Research View further information on this RLO.
Asking the right question This RLO outlines why asking the right question can help in the search for evidence, and explains how to construct good questions using the PICO technique. EBP, Research, pico View further information on this RLO.
Types of qualitative research This RLO outlines the variety of types of qualitative research that there are. It's aimed primarily at students studying evidence based practice and research methods. EBP, Research, qualitative research View further information on this RLO.
What is a randomised controlled trial? This RLO outlines how Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) work. EBP, rct, clinical trial, Pharmacology, Research View further information on this RLO.
Cohort and case-controlled studies This RLO explains what are case-control and cohort studies, and outlines the difference between them. Research, EBP View further information on this RLO.
Determining the clinical importance of trial results This RLO demonstrates how to interpret and use clinical trial data (ARR, RRR, NNT, NNH, and confidence intervals) in practice. EBP View further information on this RLO.
Positive and negative predictive value of diagnostic tests This RLO explains how diagnostic test results are a combination of true and false positive, or true and false negative. EBP, PPV, NPV View further information on this RLO.
Relative risk reduction and absolute risk reduction This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using relative risk reduction (RRR) and absolute risk reduction (ARR). EBP, Risk, ARR, RRR, clinical trial View further information on this RLO.
Sensitivity and Specificity This RLO explains how diagnostic test accuracy is described by the terms sensitivity and specificity. Sensitivity describes the accuracy of the test in detecting disease. Specificity describes the accuracy of the test in detecting health. EBP, GEM View further information on this RLO.
SI Units and calculating unit changes To identify what SI units are, when they are used, and how to calculate unit changes. EBP, Numeracy View further information on this RLO.
Why critique research? Why published research needs to be appraised by readers. EBP, Research, Study skills View further information on this RLO.
Meta-analysis This RLO provides an introduction to the basic concepts of meta-analysis, which is an important and valuable tool for summarising data from multiple studies. EBP, Research, meta-analysis View further information on this RLO.
Presenting and interpreting meta-analyses How to present and interpret the results of a meta-analysis using forest plots. Research, meta-analysis, EBP, quantitative synthesis, forest plot View further information on this RLO.
Search strategy for locating Randomised Controlled Trials Introduction to search strategies for locating randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in online databases. EBP View further information on this RLO.
Advanced literature searching How to construct literature search enquiries using the thesaurus, focus or explode your search, use the search term taxonomy to refine your search and combine these methods into an advance search protocol. CINAHL, Evidence-Based Medicine, EBP View further information on this RLO.
Confidence intervals This RLO defines the term 'confidence intervals' and demonstrates how they can be used to determine the significance and range of possible sizes of a treatment effect. EBP View further information on this RLO.
Using databases to find journal articles An introduction to online databases of journals relevant to nurses (eg CINAHL, BNI). EBP, Study skills View further information on this RLO.
How to conduct a literature search Practical examples of searching databases of journal articles (eg CINAHL, BNI), including screen movies of actual searches. EBP, Study skills View further information on this RLO.
Numbers needed to treat and numbers needed to harm This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH). EBP, NNT, NNH, clinical trial View further information on this RLO.
Qualitative and quantitative research Outlining the distinction between qualitative and quantitative methods of doing research. EBP, Research, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Designing a Questionnaire This RLO introduces good practice in questionnaire design, step by step. EBP, Research View further information on this RLO.
Surrogate Outcomes This RLO considers the type of evidence which should be used when making decisions about patient care. EBP View further information on this RLO.
Steps in conducting a systematic review This RLO outlines the five fundamental steps to conducting a systematic review of health care research so as identify, select and critically appraise relevant research. EBP View further information on this RLO.
What are Journals? This learning object introduces educational journals and describes three types: Academic, Professional and Subject. The examples used are drawn from the area of nursing, but the concepts are cross-discipline. EBP, Study skills, Journals View further information on this RLO.
