In this paper, the definition and description of what a case study is, what are some reasons for using a case study, what are some disadvantages and advantages of this approach? Also included in this paper I will talk about what are some of the ways a researcher can acquire information that can is used for a case study. A case study can be defined as a descriptive account of the behavior, history, and other relevant factors concerning a particular individual (Cozby, Bates, 2012).
In the first article chosen, “Why are Nurses Leaving? Findings From an Initial Qualitative Study on Nursing Attrition,” the research method used was qualitative. The specific type of research design used was phenomenology. The participants were interviewed about their person experience of what it was like working as a registered nurse. The research question for this study was, “What is the experience of RNs who leave clinical nursing?” The sample is registered nurses (RN) with a minimum of 1 year of clinical practice and no clinical practice in the last 6 months. The sample size was ten, which were a majority of females (80%),
According to the CMSA (Case Management Society of America) and several others organizations that case management alone means that it is a collective system that helps the patient and their family needs through the communication, available resources of promoted quality, and cost-effective outcomes.
D: The client discussed interest in living in an Oxford house after his release from PWC ADC (6/19). The client stated that if he was released from PWC ADC today, he would not return or violate probation. The client discussed that being on probation is not an issue for him because he learned from his mistakes and is confident that he can remain sober long-term.
There are several types of methods that can be used for qualitative research. They include ethnographic, case study, phenomenological, ground theory, and critical study. The following will detail what the methods are and how they could be used in a classroom at Stephen Decatur Middle School. The research question being utilized for each example scenario is “will the use of audio books increase engagement for seventh grade special education students during independent reading sessions?”
There is such a difficulty for those that communicate through American Sign Language (ASL) to relate with the hearing, as a result deaf persons prefer to integrate into a deaf community (Comstock 2015). Those of hearing ability often see being deaf as a disability, whereas in a deaf community it is understood there is no disability (Comstock 2015). Often those that are fortunate enough to attend a school for the deaf develop bonds that are stronger than those with their own family members (Comstock 2015). The deaf
Following a critical overview of the literature, this chapter outlines the research methodology. It will provide a justification for a qualitative methodological approach and specification of methods employed. Highlighting the appropriateness of interviews and focus groups in relation to the methodology and overall research. It will also provide recognition of their relative strengths and limitations.
Participation in fitness and social activities are key determinants of successful aging and enables older adults to stay in their homes and be integrated into the community. Although meeting participation needs involves older adults, their caregivers and healthcare providers, little is known about their respective viewpoints. This study thus explored the perceived, met and unmet participation needs of older adults having disabilities as seen by the older adults themselves, their caregivers and healthcare providers. A qualitative multiple case study consisted of conducting 33 semi-structured interviews in eleven triads, each composed of an older adult, his/her caregiver and a healthcare provider recruited in community health settings
Under IDEA students apart of the “deaf” community can receive “amplification systems, sign language interpreter, preferred seating (for lip reading), a note taker and placing captioning on films. (IDEA)” Also the teachers can be given ASL
The article talks about why Deaf students’ teachers should be a C.O.D.A or be Deaf. A C.O.D.A or child of a Deaf adult is someone who grew up with one or both parents being Deaf and is a hearing person. Deaf/hard of hearing students being taught by a Deaf/C.O.D.A teacher is important because when teaching Deaf students, a language model is needed. Without a language model who would the students have to look up to for help not only with ASL but with
A case study is a specific instance that is frequently designed to illustrate a more general principle (Nisbet and Watt, 1984). Hitchock and Hughes (1995) further suggest that the case study approach is particularly valuable when the researcher has little control over evens. Case studies strives to portray ‘what it like’ to be a particular situation, to catch up reality and ‘thick description’ (Geertz, 1973) of participants’ lives experiences of, thoughts about and feelings for a situation. They involve looking at a case or phenomenon in its real-life context, usually employing many types of data (Robson, 2002). It is important in case studies for events and situations to be allowed to speak for themselves, rather than to be largely interpreted, evaluated or judged by the researcher. In this respect the case study is akin to the television documentary. Case studies can make theoretical statements, but, like other forms of research and human sciences, these must be supported by the evidence presented.
Peter Nicholson wishes to convert the factory in the north east to production of the electric taxi. Using data in Appendix C, Table 1, calculate payback period and the average rate of return.
Deaf children that are placed in a regular school setting often are accompanied by another individual known as an interpreter. The role of the interpreter breaks the language barrier between the “hearing” teacher and the “non-hearing” student. An interpreter’s role in the classroom is to
In reading the first article Coach Knight: The Will to Win, I found the article found Coach Knight to be very offensive and mean to his players. Coach Knight did not display good leadership skills. According to the article, Coach Knight’s drive and passion for excellence was not always received as well as his record of wins and losses Snook, Per low, Delacey, 2005).
