Point Description Description Description
Broad Topic Area/Title The main topic of the study is: The effect of pre-gestational diabetes and risk of adverse maternal, perinatal and neonatal outcomes. There are always complications that arise as a result of diabetes among the expectant mothers. This study seeks to explore the impact of diabetes and the risk that it has among the expectant mothers. In other words, the study aims at examining the blood sugar level and the impact that it has to the maternal mothers. The main topic of the study is the Perception of Nursing Students on Effectiveness of Training-A Case Study on Red Cross Hospital, Silchar. Nurses often require effective training process to ensure that they are competent when it comes to the actual training process. In most cases, nursing student tend to gain experience after continuous clinical practices. However, in some cases, nurses still lack elaborate experiences after the clinical practice. The broad topic of the study is the quantitative analysis of nurse’s perceptions on evidence-based practices. The application of evidence-based practices in different healthcare settings requires the involvement of nurses and other healthcare professionals. However, in some cases, nurses often have different perceptions when it comes to the operational processes in different environment. The study therefore attempts to highlight the perception of nurses when it comes to the application of evidence-based practices.

 

Identify Independent and Dependent Variables and Type of Data for the Variables Independent variable: Blood glucose level (pre-gestational diabetes ) (Type: continuous variable with a normal distribution)

Dependent variable: perinatal and neonatal outcomes (Type: continuous variable)

Independent Variable:

Training Effectiveness (Type: Categorical variable)

Dependent variable:

Perception of nursing students (Type: continuous variable)

Independent variable: Level of evidence-based practices in the healthcare settings (continuous variable)

Dependent variable: Perception of nurses on the evidence-based intervention approaches used (categorical variable)

Population of Interest for the Study The population of interest in the study include expectant mothers who are diabetic. The respondents were identified from different health centers. Only diabetic participants were considered in the process of the study. The process of sampling was carefully done to ensure that only the relevant respondents were contacted. The population of interest in the study were the nursing students from their first year of bachelor programs. The selection of the participants was limited to students only, those taking different programs in the nursing. In most cases, nurses have different perceptions on the type of training that is being used. The population of interest in the study nurses and other healthcare professionals from different healthcare institutions. Only the healthcare professionals were involved in the study.

 

 

Sample The sample size used in the study was 100. In other words, a total of 100 participants were recruited to take part in the study. The study participants were expected to answer questions set in the questionnaires so as to enhance the collection and validation of data. The sample size was 56. In other words, a total of 56 study participants were recruited to take part in the entire process of study.

 

 

 

The sample size was 195. In other words, 195 nurses were recruited in the process of the study. The respondents were sampled from various healthcare settings.
Sampling Method Simple random sampling was used to identify the study participants. The respondents were randomly selected from the identified population of the expectant mothers from different healthcare institutions.

 

 

Simple random sampling technique was used to identify the study participants. The identified respondents were then presented with the questionnaires with set questions depicting variables in the study. Stratified sampling method was used to identify the study respondents. Also simple random sampling method was used.
