A Correlational Study Regarding Healthcare Delivery
Reflect on a particular topic of interest that may benefit from a correlational study.
Focus on the types of research questions that can be answered using correlational statistics. Brainstorm several healthcare delivery or nursing practice problems that could be explored using correlational statistics. Then, select one problem on which to focus for this answer. Formulate a research question to address the problem that would lead you to employ correlational statistics. Explain your prediction for the expected relationship (positive or negative) between the variables that you identified. Why do you think that sort of relationship will exist? What other factors might affect the outcome?
