A Brief Introduction to Epidemiology - VI (Basics of Research & Epidemiological Research Methodologies) Betty C. Jung, RN, MPH, CHES

Slide 2

Learning Objectives To comprehend: The best possible techniques for leading examination What makes for good research outline The pitfalls of poor research plan The fundamentals of epidemiological research outline

Slide 3

Performance Objectives Basic comprehension of : The Scientific Method Different sorts of research Patton\'s Research Typology Research plans utilized as a part of Epidemologic Research Common measures utilized as a part of Epidemiologic Research

Slide 4

Introduction The main role of research is to direct a logical, or, insightful examination concerning a wonder, or to answer a smoldering inquiry. Research is characterized as an efficient way to deal with critical thinking.

Slide 5

What is Research? Customarily, the Scientific Method implies: Control of factors and inclinations Use of experimental confirmation to create learning Generalizable outcomes

Slide 6

The Scientific Method Describe marvels Explore connections among wonders Explain marvels and increment understanding Predict reasons for and connections among wonders Control wonders

Slide 7

Assumptions for Scientific Method Objective reality exists free from individuals\' recognitions Nature has request, normality, and consistency All wonders have causes that can be found

Slide 8

Steps in Performing Research Problem Literature Review Conceptual & Theoretical Frameworks Variables & Hypotheses Research Design Population & test Data Collection Data Analysis Results and discoveries

Slide 9

What is a Pilot Study? Done before a noteworthy review starts Minimizes the likelihood of having huge challenges happening in amid the real review Obtain information for enhancing the real review Make modifications before starting the real review

Slide 10

Limitations of Research Based on the Scientific Method Every exploration contemplate has imperfections No single review demonstrates or negates a theory Ethical issues can oblige analysts Adequate control is difficult to keep up in a review

Slide 11

Categorizing Research Qualitative & Quantitative Research Basic & Applied Research Patton\'s Research Typology

Slide 12

Words or Numbers Qualitative Research - information from words, pictures, and so on. Quantitative Research - information from numbers

Slide 13

Basic & Applied Basic Research - embraced to propel learning in a given territory - understanding connections among marvels Applied Research - attempted to cure a specific issue or alter a circumstance - to settle on choices or assess procedures

Slide 14

The Continuum of Research A Typology (Patton) Basic Research Applied Research Summative Evaluation Formative Evaluation Action Research

Slide 15

Basic Research Goal: To comprehend & clarify Discipline-particular Contribution: A hypothesis to clarify the wonder under scrutiny Question: How did the West Nile Virus spread to the U.S.?

Slide 16

Applied Research Goal: To comprehend societal issues and recognize potential arrangement Takes a clarification and apply it to certifiable issues & encounters Inter-disciplinary Contribution: Solutions to true issues Question: How can disease transmission specialists track the spread of the West Nile Virus in the U.S.?

Slide 17

Summative Evaluation Goal: To assess the viability of particular intercessions for particular issues under particular conditions Question: In 2000, did mosquito splashing contain the spread of the West Nile Virus in the U.S.?

Slide 18

Formative Evaluation Goal: To enhance the adequacy of particular projects with the setting these projects were created for Question: Was State A\'s mosquito showering program similarly powerful in the towns that led splashing?

Slide 19

Action Research Goal: To concentrate a particular issue inside a program, or, association, or, group Question: Was State A\'s Community Z\'s splashing plan compelling in decreasing the quantity of occupants tainted with the West Nile Virus?

Slide 20

Epidemiological Study Designs Observational Studies - inspect relationship between hazard variables and results (Analytical - determinants and danger of infection, and elucidating - examples and recurrence of malady) Intervention Studies - investigate the relationship amongst mediations and results. (Test considers or clinical trials)

Slide 21

Research Designs in Analytic Epidemiology Cohort Study Case-Control Study Data from Entire Population Ecologic Designs

Slide 22

Epidemiologic View of Best Estimates Selection Bias - over-portrayal of the individuals who are accessible to give it Survivor Bias - getting information just from the individuals who have made due to give it Measurement predispositions Recall inclination Reporting inclination

Slide 23

Measures of Association & Hypothesis Testing Test Statistic = Observed Association - Expected Association Standard Error of the Association Type I Error: Concluding there is an affiliation when one doesn\'t exist Type II Error: Concluding there is no affiliation when one exists

Slide 24

Measures of Association Two Main Types of Measures Difference Measures (Two Independent Means, Two Independent Proportions, The Attributable Risk) Ratio Measures (Relative Risk, Relative Prevalence, Odds Ratio )

Slide 25

Measures of Association: Difference Measures Two Independent Means Two Independent Proportions The Attributable Risk

Slide 26

Attributable Risk (AR) The distinction between 2 extents Quantifies the quantity of events of a wellbeing result that is expected to, or can be credited to, the presentation or hazard figure Used to survey the effect of taking out a hazard calculate

Slide 27

Measures of Association: Ratio Measures Relative Risk (RR) Relative Prevalence (RP) Odds Ratio (OR)

Slide 28

Strength of Association Relative Risk;(Prevalence); Odds Ratio Strength of Association 0.83-1.00 1.0-1.2 None 0.67-0.83 1.2-1.5 Weak 0.33-0.67 1.5-3.0 Moderate 0.10-0.33 3.0-10.00 Strong <0.01 >10.0 Approaching Infinity Source: Handler,A, Rosenberg,D., Monahan, C., Kennelly, J.

Slide 29

The Preventive Fraction The 2x2 table does not generally need to be sorted out as far as a hazard figure and antagonistic result. Can be sorted out to concentrate on a defensive impact. Valuable for program assessment, where a program has been intended to have a positive effect and measuring the extent of this effect is coveted. A measure of program adequacy . Unfavorable Outcome Y N Program Y N
