Week 2 | Part 2: Strategies to Promote Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics

I have analyzed the relationship between academic integrity and writing, as well as the relationship between professional practices and scholarly ethics. I have also identified strategies I intend to pursue to maintain integrity and ethics of my academic work while a student of the MSN program, as well as my professional work as a nurse throughout my career. The results of these efforts are shared below.

Include a review of resources and approaches you propose to use as a student and a professional.

Week 3 | Part 3: Research Analysis

I have identified one topic of interest for further study. I have researched and identified one peer-reviewed research article focused on this topic and have analyzed this article. The results of these efforts are shared below.

Directions: Complete Step 1 by using the table and subsequent space below identify and analyze the research article you have selected. Complete Step 2 by summarizing in 2-3 paragraphs the results of your analysis using the space identified.

Step 1: Research Analysis

Complete the table below

Topic of Interest:

Telemedicine

Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI)

Ramaswamy, A., Yu, M., Drangsholt, S., Ng, E., Culligan, P. J., Schlegel, P. N., & Hu, J. C. (2020). Patient satisfaction with telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic: Retrospective cohort study. Journal of Medical Internet Research, 22(9), e20786. https://www.jmir.org/2020/9/e20786/

One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article

1) Remote follow-up visits: The use of telemedicine for patient follow-up visits can ease the burden on both patients and healthcare practitioners while enhancing the compliance with the treatment intervention.

Relevancy to Topic of Interest

Notes

The research is current and focuses on a technology that is gaining prominence in the healthcare industry.

___

Having current research is vital in understanding how telemedicine is perceived by both patients and healthcare practitioners in order to inform best practices in the future.

N/A

The results of the research are peer-reviewed, which enhances the credibility of the article.

___

It is vital to get credible and valid information regarding telemedicine to identify how best to leverage this technology for better healthcare outcomes in the future.

N/A

___

This is a retrospective study that prevents the researchers from establishing causality between increased patient satisfaction and video visits.

The research does not show if telemedicine directly leads to increased patient satisfaction or if there are other mitigating factors.

N/A

___

The sample used for the study was based on patients from only one healthcare institution.

It is not possible to reliably generalize the results of the study since other healthcare organizations may be experiencing poor patient satisfaction levels from the use of telemedicine.

N/A

Step 2: Summary of Analysis

Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following:

· Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research

· Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research

· Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research

In identifying peer-reviewed research, I opted to use Google Scholar to search for articles related to my topic of interest. Once I identified a few articles, I checked to see if they were written by scholars. I checked the authors’ academic credentials and their affiliations to professional associations. I then checked to see if the journals that hosted the articles were peer-reviewed sources or not. I also checked the general structure of the research studies and whether the language used was technical and formal. There are two strategies, which I found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research. First, there is the use of Google Scholar. This is a valuable resource for searching for scholarly articles from various databases. Second, there is the use of well-known databases such as PubMed and Elsevier, which only deal with scholarly peer-reviewed sources.

In analyzing the peer-reviewed research, I started by reviewing the logical reasons outlined for carrying out the study. I then evaluated the methodology description, which was applied in the research. Thereafter, I checked to see if there was a clear and concise report for the findings. Finally, I checked to see if there was a logical conclusion originating from the study results. Overall, one resource, which I intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research is Google Scholar. Although this is not a database, it is an effective search engine tools that directs one to articles from diverse databases.

Week 6 | Part 4: Finalizing the Plan

I have considered various options for my nursing specialty, including a close look at my selected (or currently preferred) specialty and second-preferred specialty. I have also developed a justification of my selected (or preferred) specialty. Lastly, I have examined one professional organization related to my selected or preferred specialty and considered how I can become a member of this organization.

The results of my efforts are below.

Directions: Complete Step 1 by writing 2-3 paragraphs in the space below comparing the nursing specialty you have selected – or the one you prefer if your choice is still under consideration – to your second preference. Identify each specialty and describe the focus and the role that graduates are prepared for. Identify any other differentiators you feel are significant, especially those that helped or may help you reach a decision.

Complete Step 2 by writing a paragraph identifying and justifying your reasons for choosing your MSN specialization. Be sure to incorporate any feedback you received from colleagues in this week’s Discussion Forum.

Complete Step 3 by examining and identifying one professional organization related to your selected or preferred specialty. Explain how you can become a member of this organization.
