Assignment: Please write a research question and problem with supporting literature. The question should contain independent variable and dependent variable. The question should state what type of study will be performed (quantitative study or qualitative study).
1.My topic statement is psychological distress in post-acute myocardial infraction (MI) patients. The problem is that many times this patient population is being under diagnosis for psychological distress disorders like depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The problem is there is no specific nursing assessment tool that have been developed to help nurses working with this patient population assess and pick up on signs and symptoms of psychological distress disorder in order for this post-acute MI patients can get psychological distress disorder treatment early.
Is there a difference in detecting psychological distress disorders like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder early in post-acute (MI) patients who complete a psychological questionnaire with a nurse before discharge and those who do not complete psychological questionnaire with a nurse before discharge?
The independent variable is psychological discharge questionnaire by nurse before discharge. The dependent variable is detecting psychological distress disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder early in post-acute (MI) patients. Post-acute MI patients are times psychological distress disorders are under diagnosed in this patient population.
