Week 10: Dayana De Leon
Chapters 16 and 17 of the book by Tappen (2016) cover data collection in nursing research and interventions mechanisms in care delivery practices respectively. The two topics are equally relevant in the nursing practice, and offer critical perspectives on how caregivers can improve their work as professionals and make significant contributions in the nursing field.
Chapter 16 covers the implications of using different data collection techniques in nursing research. Specifically, the segment encompasses historical, Internet-based, and secondary research techniques, as applicable in the care delivery field (Tappen, 2016). A major takeaway was that all these strategies have their set of advantages and disadvantages. Thus, researchers must determine the appropriate data collection protocols guided by such aspects as population sample and significance of the sought research. When a researcher faces budget constraints, for example, the individual can opt for the online-based research as the most appropriate data collection strategy.
While chapter 16 covers data collection techniques, chapter 17 elucidates on nursing interventions protocols and ways to implement them. This section is particularly relevant in care delivery because of the prominence of such issues as incompatible care delivery strategies in the care delivery field (Urden, Stacy, & Lough, 2019). The segment lists types of intervention protocols, which include educational, lifestyle, and self-care interventions. Essentially, based on the evaluation, when working with patients, nurses should choose appropriate methods that increase patient outcomes. Overall, the implication of the chapter is that the successful execution of intervention plans requires close monitoring, planning, and adjustments. The use of existing models by researchers to implement interventions aimed at making the process effective and easier is one such example.
In summary, chapter 16 and 17 readings appeal to the considerations of evidence-based practice and improvement of care delivery. Whether collecting data or selecting intervention plans, nurses should determine the best protocols that can generate the best results. Ultimately, through information and evidence-based practice, caregivers can improve the nursing field.

Kasandra Adras-Childs: Week 10
Within this week’s readings of Chapter 16 and 17, many topics were covered that ties into our current day to day lives with technology. Nowadays the growing interest in electronics, technology based learned and the Internet are a an all time high. Providers as well as patients now are able to surf the web for certain symptoms or general questions that they might have in regards to almost anything that one can think of. Chapter 16 discuses the use of internet- based practices and its promises to grow exponentially (Tappen, 2011). Within this chapter, methods are described on how the internet can and will be used to help support and conduct research such as collecting data on undesirable and sensitive topics, recruitment of participants, finding access to resources as well as tracking outbreaks such as diseases or other health concerns (Tappen, 2013). Masters Essential V: Informatics and Healthcare Technologies helps to explain how healthcare providers uses technology to deliver and also enhance care and the best possible health care results by communicating through and with the aid of technology (AACN,2013).
Although the Internet and online sources has plentiful of advantages especially during this era of increasing usage of technology, there are disadvantages as well. For example it has been explained that data are often times not the ideal form for a planned analysis and can also be more difficult to find a database containing desirable information (Tappen, 2013).
Chapter 17, goes into detail to provide ample of information on interventions within a study as well as the dimensions of interventions in relation to care such as the complexity, intensity, and the focus of care (Tappen, 2013). All in all, these chapters were very informative as well as interesting to read as they relate to nowadays practice with technology and the use of the Internet that we as healthcare providers are becoming all too familiar with.
