Presenting the results and summarizing and discussing the results

Chapter 19 discussed the ideal or thought process in regards to presenting the results. The results section of a research paper describes, defines and expresses to the reader the outcome, conclusion or findings of the research project. Utilizing some simple and clear-cut techniques, methods or procedures in the preparation of this section produces a clear and comprehensible presentation of results of the research. The goal of research is not just to discover something but to communicate that discovery to a larger audience other social scientists, government officials, teachers, the general public, perhaps several of these audiences. Subsequently there are many research reports that are very incomplete or poorly written or that speak to only one of several interested audiences. The failure may not be complete, but the project’s full potential is not achieved. The stage of reporting research results is also the point at which the need for new research is identified.

In chapter 20 the focus was on summarizing and discussing the results. As a result the initial task will be to provide a verbal summary of the research findings. Therefore there is no need to repeat the findings and the findings should be in simple terms. In addition the need for figures is not a good ideal based on the fact that the results are generally or purely summary. Subsequently taking into account the brief, concise and short summary in relation to the findings should ultimately be related to other research findings and speculative or theoretical models in an attempt to put in plain words, enlighten, describe or explain the results. In addition we should annotate whether or not there s a difference between what others have researched in regards to what we’ve researched and concluded as a result of the survey. Do our findings…...

...CONCLUSION The Samsung Galaxy S II is a worthy heir of the best-selling smartphone with the Android OS, and it will surely have similar market success due to its impressive features, excellent display, modern and elegant performance, advanced and up-to-date user interface with an abundance of functions. There's no question this is going to be Samsung's best smartphone, and it will surely satisfy the needs of even the most demanding of users. All the top U.S. wireless carriers offer a version of the original Galaxy S, and it seems likely they will be picking up its newest version later this year. Pros: • Very good display • Elegant design • TouchWiz 4.0 user interface • High-quality full HD video recordings • Great performance Cons: • No dedicated key for turning the camera on • Poor photo quality in low lighting • Marketing Genius of Samsung • Samsung has unarguably made the greatest marketing ploy with the Samsung Galaxy S3 imitating in several aspects the marketing strategies of Apple and their products. The company as such has been highly secretive about the Samsung Galaxy S3, often denying the rumors that come out or actively concealing any information that usually is given. The genius of it all remains not in the secrecy, but rather in the “leaks” that actually occur. Photographs taken with the 12MP camera that’s supposed to grace the camera, blurred images of the body of the phone, even invoices of pre orders from various channel partners bearing the name....

...4. Conclusion and Recommendations The qualitative findings give findings give reason for optimism about market interest in the new product because there are many specific attributes that the consumers desire in a tool bag. There are common characteristics that tool bag users are looking for, and Veto Pro can use this information to tailor their product to these specific needs. For example, both Matt and Joe emphasize durability. This allows the tool bags to last longer and eliminate the need to buy a new one. Organization also seems to be an important characteristic of the ideal tool bag. The damage of tools seems to be an important issue, so keeping the tools out of harms way while in the bag is crucial. With the information obtained through the interviews, Veto Pro has a great opportunity to offer a product that satisfies a large target market. Veto Pro should look to exploit the weaknesses of their competition. It is important for Veto Pro to keep their prices reasonable. We found in the interview that tool bag users are only willing to stretch their budget so far in terms of purchasing a tool bag. In terms of brand awareness, neither of our interviewees had heard of Veto Pro. This strikes as a big problem. We recommend that you focus on advertising and getting your product known in the market place. Although the product may offer everything that the consumer needs, if they are not aware of it they cannot purchase it. Word of mouth seems to be an effective marketing...

...existence, operations and public image. They can create goodwill for any business in the market boosting its revenue promising a bright future. While on the other hand breaching or ignoring the same business ethics can do more harm and may lead to a market failure and company closure. Ethics play an important role not only while initiating a business but also when it faces issues like that of defective products. The following report will highlight the role of ethical behavior in management of defective product by taking a real example of Breast Implant manufacturing company which had to dissolve following the product failure in the market. This report will discuss the chain of issues that led to the defects and will draw a contrast and a conclusion based upon how PIP behaved ethically in order to deal with such burning issues. Background of the Company Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) A French company started in 1991 that produced breast implants. 2000: Implant sales in USA halted by an FDA launched moratorium on silicone implants. 2001: PIP began to use unapproved in-house manufactured industrial-grade instead of medical grade silicon in the majority of its implants. 2003: the first signs of legal problems and financial losses can be traced by regulatory filings. 2009: Concerns surfaced in France first in 2009 when surgeons started reporting an abnormally high rupture rates. Resulting in a flood of legal complaints and hence bankruptcy. 2011: French officials say that an......

Hcs 465 Problems in Healthcare Results and Conclusion

...Introduction “Gastric bypass is the operation recommended by the National Institute of Health for treatment of morbid obesity because of its low morbidity and mortality rates and excellent long-term results regarding weight loss” (Tian, 2011). The laparoscopic surgical procedure for obesity is generally referred to as the Lap-band procedure and is known for the smaller and less invasive incisions. The goal of the chosen study was to determine the effects of the laparoscopic surgery and the gastric bypass based on hospitalization time, surgical duration, rate of mortality, and the surgeries that are repeated. The patients used for the study were each morbidly obese and had tried and failed at other diet and exercise methods however gender, age, race, weight, and height did not factor in when randomly selecting the test patients for participation in this meta-analysis. Some exclusions were made due to previous surgeries for weight control, respiratory and cardiac issues, and certain diseases that would be complicated by participating in the study and alter the results obtained. Data Collection Methods The data collection procedures used in the study were appropriate and in the form of a meta-analysis. The information was gathered from studies during 2001, 2004, and 2006 consisting of 422 patients randomly selected with some similar circumstances from the locations of United States, Spain, and Sweden. 208 of the patients were in the open gastric bypass and 214 of the patients...

Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health

...Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health Sandra Green April 3, 2013 Rhett Stover HCS/465 Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health The method of data collection should link the objectives to the research questions. Data collection procedures are very important for this study. The procedures of the collection will provide validity based on the type of survey taken on the age group surveyed for pertinent information involving the research process.  In the comparative study described in the article Breaking the Repeat Teen Pregnancy Cycle, the nurtured trait of resilience is the ability to recover from a setback. The data for this study was collected through chart audits of medical records and by tracing these young girls over a period of at least two years. Data is collected in the medical records by a series of verbal questions asked by a medical professional through personal interviews. Face-to-face interviews are an excellent technique to observe behaviors of the individual. This behavior could be verbal or nonverbal such as body language. One disadvantage of this is that there may be a lack of standardization in the questions. The findings suggest that a teen mother with one infant is 500 times more likely to have another child with two years. Young girls sometimes believe that getting pregnant a second child might bring her and her significant other closer together and enhance the......

Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process

...Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health Care Ijuanaya Woods HCS/465 April 22, 2013 Kerrie Kelly o Results In the world of healthcare, there are many advantages to improving the quality of healthcare while keeping the costs of healthcare down. One system is known as the “Pay for performance” system. This system is aimed at improving healthcare by offering a financial reward. This type of program usually pays a bonus if the providers or hospital meet on an agreed upon performance measure, for example, reducing the hemoglobin A1c in diabetic patients. Hemoglobin A1c is a test that shows the average level of blood sugar in a patient within the past 2-3 months. This is important for diabetic patients to see whether their blood sugar levels have been on target or not. These incentives can be paid directly to physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare providers to ensure that their facility carries out such improvements and to achieve the most optimal quality of care for their patients. Another system is called “pay for performance”, where paying providers for resulting in better outcomes for patients, who in return will improve these outcomes. While both of these programs are a great way to improve the quality of healthcare by giving providers some type of motivation to improve their services, it can also come with some penalties. Hospitals and nursing homes can face financial penalties...

Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health Care

...Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Problems in Health Care HCS/465 October 3, 2013 Results The procedure of collecting data was appropriate because the data was collected in the most efficient and logical way of collecting data for obtaining the desired outcome. The data for this study was collected by a web-enabled database for error reporting system in a hospital setting. Nurses, physicians, and pharmacists had access to the system at any time to report any type of medication error. The rights of the subjects were protected because the patients information was never used on the error reporting database and the error reports made by the staff were anonymous, other than tracking what job title the error reporter held. Reporting any error was completely voluntary to the staff and staff was fully aware of what the system was for. The data collection tool in this instance was a web-enabled database for error reporting. This system supports the reliability of the study by keeping accurate percentage tallies of the types of errors, who is reporting the errors, and the suggestions to prevent the errors. Data Analysis Procedures The data analysis procedures in this study were appropriate for the data collected because the procedures used to analyze the data were as follows: two experts, the investigator, and the pharmacist worked together to analyze the material. The two experts agreed on the categories of errors and the one year time limit...

...Conclusion MAS, has been suffering from an economic downfall, with the value of the RM fluctuating against the dollar and bad business decisions still costing the organization money. The management team at MAS is large and MAS has been rapidly expanding into new business ventures within the travel business, so at least they are sticking to what they know. To still be operating in the next5 years, MAS is going to need to change what is currently happening and play catch up with their rivals. Fortunately air travel in Asia is expected to increase when the downturn is over, but that still leaves the European and American markets. By creating strategic alliances with other firms such as KLM, MAS has a chance of getting an increase in travel to European and America. While all these changes take place it is important that MAS respects the culture and structure that have been built up over the history of MAS and to try and not change these aspects of the company too fast. Once re-structured the poorly performing operations can be sold off and MAS can concentrate on the operational activities that prove profitable. It is then up to MAS to market these properly and let their customers know what is available to them and at what price. The major changes include restructuring the organization and implementing a low cost no frill airline that will allow MAS to service local customers wishing to fly within Asia. Brand name is all important so through all the changes it is important that......

...Conclusion In the starting of the experiment, we construct a body of the water rocket, which is made out of unwanted bottles. Other than that, we used wood plank, PVC tube, wire holder and bicycle tire to build the water rocket launcher After conduct this experiment, we found that heat will affect the temperature change. The time taken for the water rocket launched into the air and drop to the ground is longer. Hence, the hypothesis is accepted. As what we did in the experiment, we prepared 8 different temperature of water and insert into the body of the water rocket. After we conduct the experiment, we realized that there are some mistakes which made our results less reliable. The temperature recorded for all specimens were too close because they were measured by a lab thermometer. In future, when we repeat this experiment, we will use a digital thermometer which has a high sensitivity to get a more accurate reading. Besides that, we found that there is some error occurs when we pour water into the bottle (body of water rocket). There is heat loss during the pouring process. The temperature of water may drop since there is evaporation occurs. But fortunately, we quickly measured the water temperature as long as we pour the water into the bottle to ensure that the error occurs won’t be different with our expectation. Finally, it is......

Wk 3 Results & Conclusion Hcs 465

...Results The data collection procedures for this research is by observation of 118 health care professionals preparing medication preparation of intravenous narcotic preparation. Researchers were focusing on 2 potential approaches to reducing medication error, individual error focus and systematic error focus. Observing the health care professionals with different procedural changes, process design, to see if it reduces the possibility of error is the appropriate data collection. This research did not directly involve patient identifiable health information. This study was based off of the data from the original study that used some patient protected health information. This research studied the two possible approaches that would possibly effect the reduction in medication errors. The principles of validity and reliability are essential bases of the scientific method. Validity of research must have been randomization of the sample groups and appropriate care and diligence shown in the allocation of controls (Shuttle, 2008). The research is validated since the sample group is randomized with professionals within their field such as RN’s that are licensed to prepare IV mediations along with hospital pharmacists. Also controls were allocated with diligence. For example, the group in the research were randomly selected and the controls, such as the same medications and stations, were kept the same for each participation as much as possible. The reliability of the research......

... Team Assignment Conclusion Joseph A Campbell BCOM/275 12/20/2014 MARK BARNHART When looking Back When looking back on this past course and wondering what this course may have in relations to my career plan. This course has a lot to do with my future not only does this relate directly to what I'm looking to do with the rest of my life but this also has helped me understand entirely how and what ways I should speak to people. For example this came in big help just today when at work I had a situation with an employee who was taking medication that was prescribed to him now when taking this medication it altered his being he was a different person in the way he reacted was different in which I did not care for. Now when looking back on this course and thinking about things that were presented to us throughout all the readings that we have done I realize that I needed to sit back and think about what I was going to say before I set it so that everything that had come out of my mouth was entirely professional and legal before I had said anything. Through the Readings This is not only the way that this course has helped me this is also help me it drastically with my public speaking when speaking two groups of people larger than one or two this is help me understand exactly how I should present it and what type of materials I should be presenting to these people as well. I have found that everything that we have read has correlated with everything that I have intended on in......

...Understanding Graduate-Level Writing September 14, 2015 Understanding Graduate-Level Writing To understand graduate-level writing, you must look at the characteristics that make this type of writing different from other types of writing. One of these characteristics is to communicate a specific idea or intended message that is precise and elegantly worded, so the reader will not misunderstand (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). Being misunderstood in any type of writing can be one of the biggest factors in how credible you are and if the message you are conveying will have the impact that is intended to make. As a graduate level writer, your technical vocabulary and phrases will play a vital role for difficult or intricate ideas, which should be conveyed in a short and concise manner (Beins & Beins, 2012, para. 9). That being said graduate-level writing generally follows a specific format that can be understood universally (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). This specific and technical format displays one of the differences between the other forms of writing. Other styles of writing that are less formal usually accommodate the content as well as the artistic style of the text (Beins & Beins, 2012, p. 3). Taking the artistic less formal route for writing will allow the reader to understand the message in a less confusing method for virtually any level of understanding. The technical jargon that graduate-level writings entail seem to be one of the important distinctions...
