Steps of Research Process:
Identify the Problem: The first task in the planning stage is to identify and stage the problem, as you have already learnt in the earlier sub-section of this unit. This is the most difficult part of research. The researchers begin with the question - such as "what is the problem"? can I prevent bedsore? "What alternative method can I use that would be more effective?
These questions help the researcher to identify the problem area which is very broad hazy at first and gradually focuses on the more pertinent aspect of this question, that problem to be studied.
The process that the researcher uses to arrive at the research problem is called form the problem. This helps in defining the problem and the research objectives clearly, problem statement should cover what is being studied in order to implicitly indicate what is not studied. Therefore, research problem are questions posed for solutions. The researchable not verifiable, that is, the researcher can collect observable data and verify statistic. One also looks in whether the problem is practical, that is, "is it needed?"% it important?" Is the study feasible?" Will it add to nursing knowledge?"
Another characteristic that the researcher looks for is the cost in terms of energy, and time. The researcher also should ask herselfhimself whether helshe is interested the subject of study as well as qualified to do the study. A researcher does not work someone else's vested interests. The justification is based on the researcher's own experiences, the experiences of others and the societies, benefit, the accumulated data already existing in the literature.
