I’m trying to study for my Nursing course and I need some help to understand this question.

All questions must be answered in bullet format with rationale provided.

Sample and setting

  1. Was the group or population of interest adequately described? Were the setting and sample described in sufficient detail?
  2. Was the best possible method of sampling used to enhance information richness?
  3. Was the sample size adequate? Was saturation achieved?

Summary assessment

  1. Do the study findings appear to be trustworthy- do you have confidence in the truth values of the result?
  1. Does the study contribute any meaningful evidence that can be used in nursing practice or that is useful to the nursing discipline?
