The interpretation of research in health care is essential to decision making. By understanding research,
health care providers can identify risk factors, trends, outcomes for treatment, health care costs and best
practices. To be effective in evaluating and interpreting research, the reader must first understand how to
interpret the findings. You will practice article analysis in Topics 2, 3, and 5.
For this assignment:
Search the GCU Library and find three different health care articles that use quantitative research. Do not
use articles that appear in the Topic Materials or textbook. Complete an article analysis for each using the
"Article Analysis 1" template.
Refer to the "Patient Preference and Satisfaction in Hospital-at-Home and Usual Hospital Care for COPD
Exacerbations: Results of a Randomised Controlled Trial," in conjunction with the "Article Analysis
Example 1," for an example of an article analysis.
