You will continue with the example in Module One Discussion Board.
For example (this is just an example), the researcher decides to include temperature as a dependent variable (to support CAUTI) and needs to identify a measurement method for temperature. The researcher decides to use Bard Foley Catheters (Series 400 Temperature Sensing). The author would Include a description of Bard Temperature Sensing Foley Catheters (400 Series) from literature.
The researcher is also interested in anxiety and will include anxiety in their study as a secondary research question. What is the strength of the relationship between the length of foley catheter insertion and anxiety in patients cared for in the critical care environment? The researcher will measure anxiety using the Beck Anxiety Inventory. The tool is a 21-question multiple-choice
self-report inventory Links to an external site.that is used for measuring the severity of anxiety Links to an external site. in children and adults. The tool has shown high internal consistency (α = .92) and test-retest reliability over 1 week, r(81) = .75. The BAI discriminated anxious diagnostic groups (panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, etc.) from non-anxious diagnostic groups (major depression, dysthymic disorder, etc.). In addition, the BAI was moderately correlated with the revised Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale, r(150) = .51, and was only mildly correlated with the revised Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, r(153) = .25. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016). The author would also note the reliability and validity of the instruments used in the study.
Physiological tool: Bard Temperature Sensing Foley Catheter (400 Series)
Psychosocial tool: Beck Anxiety Inventory
For this Discussion, you will identify both a psychosocial AND a physiological measurement tool that could be used to measure a concept in your area of interest. Post a brief description of the two types of measurement tools in your group discussion forum (one paragraph each). Identify support in the literature (can be from your articles you are using for this DB post) for the reliability and validity of the two types of tools and post a summary of the support (one paragraph) in your group discussion forum.
