Title: NRS 445 Topic 2 DQ 2

Selected Article:

Friganović, A., Kurtović, B., & Selič, P. (2020). A cross-sectional multicenter qualitative study exploring attitudes and burnout knowledge in intensive care nurses with burnout. Slovenian Journal of Public Health60(1), 46–54. https://doi.org/10.2478/sjph-2021-0008

‌Study design:

The study used a qualitative phenomenological methodology, using semi-structured interviews as the major means of data gathering. The researchers used a bottom-up approach and utilized the inductive methodology to develop a thematic framework that arose from the collected data. Furthermore, a semantic methodology was used to examine the experiences, beliefs, and viewpoints of the individuals.

Critical Appraisal:

The present study employs the qualitative checklist the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) provided to critically evaluate the research paper (Long et al., 2020). The study by Friganović et al. (2020) presented a concise articulation of the research objectives, which aimed to investigate the attitudes and perception of knowledge on burnout among nurses experiencing burnout. The qualitative technique was deemed suitable for this study due to the researchers’ objective of constructing a theme framework derived from the collected data.

Furthermore, a semantic approach was necessary to delve into the participants’ experiences, beliefs, and perspectives. The chosen research design, namely a qualitative phenomenological design, was deemed suitable for addressing the study inquiry. The recruiting technique used in this study was deemed suitable due to a convenience sampling method.

The data collecting method used by Friganović et al. (2020) was semi-structured interviews, deemed suitable for acquiring firsthand participant responses. Sufficient attention has been given to the examination of the researcher-participant relationship. The ethics committees of the several teaching hospitals where the study was conducted approved the research procedures, following the guidelines in the Declaration of Helsinki.

The data analysis conducted in this study was deemed adequate, resulting in the generation of accurate and trustworthy results. Therefore, this study is valuable to healthcare professionals, nurses working in critical care units, and other pertinent stakeholders (Sapeni & Said, 2020). Additionally, it encompasses a well-defined purpose statement, results, and recommendations.
