Research Critique Name: Institution: Quantitative Study Sears, K., Goldsworthy, S., & Goodman, W. (2010). The relationship between simulation in nursing education and medication safety. Journal of Nursing Education, 49(1), 52-55. DOI: 10.3928/01484834-20090918-12 1.
in 2010. The research appeared in the first issue of the 49th volume of the Journal of Nursing Education. The research objective was to determine whether clinical simulations in teaching nursing could help in reducing cases of medication error. The research design adopted for this research was a randomized control group, post-test-only design, which is a purely experimental design (Sears, Goldsworthy & Goodman, 2010, p. 53). The design is generally categorized under the major class of quantitative approaches to research. The major category of the design was experimental design. The random assignment of sampled subjects into a treatment and control group are identifiers characteristic of an experimental design (Sears et al., 2010, p. 53). 2. What are the independent and dependent variables? An independent variable is a variable that the researcher has control over. In this case, the independent variable in the research was the mode of training adopted for nursing education. The manipulation of this variable was attained by assigning differing models of nursing education delivery, which included clinical simulation-based education and actual clinical placement. The dependent variable is the measured element of interest, which is affected in the research, and in this research the dependent variable was the medication errors (Sears et al., 2010, p. 52). 3. Describe one instrument that was used to collect data. ...
