Nursing Research Using Participatory Action Research

“PAR is the ultimate in social justice practice. I suggest that PAR should be the basis for all nursing research. This book will provide you with the basics for getting started.” óPatricia J. Kelly, PhD, MPH, APRN University of MissouriñKansas City (From the Foreword) Participatory action research is a qualitative research method conducted in collaboration with a community of people in order to effect changes in the community that are relevant to the residents. This is a practical, “how-to” resource for conducting participatory action research that guides readers, step by step, through planning, conducting, and disseminating nursing research using this qualitative design. It is part of a unique series of seven books devoted to nursing research using qualitative designs and methods. Examples from actual research along with author commentary illustrate potential pitfalls and challenges that may occur during the process and how to resolve them. Written by a leading scholar of nursing research and nurse experts in participatory action research, the book describes its philosophical underpinnings and state-of-the-art techniques, and provides a concrete road map for planning and conducting studies. It considers why this particular research method is best suited for a particular study, ethical considerations, and potential obstacles. The book also discusses how to ensure rigor during a study, providing examples from scholarly literature and the authorsí own work. Each case example features a description of the study, including why the investigator decided to use participatory action rather than another research design, how he or she solved gatekeeper and access-to-sample issues, and institutional review board concerns. Also included is a discussion of how to collect and analyze data and how to disseminate findings to both the scientific community and research participants. With a focus on practical problem solving throughout, the book will be of value to novice and experienced nurse researchers, graduate teachers, in-service educators, students, and nursing research staff at health care institutions. Key Features: Describes, step by step, how to plan, conduct, and disseminate participatory action research Delivers new designs and methods Focuses on solving practical problems related to the conduct of research Features rich nursing exemplars in a variety of health/mental health clinical conditions in the United States and internationally

Black box recovered as investigators in UK probe cause of Vichai crash

Black box recovered as investigators in UK probe cause of Vichai crash

AIR ACCIDENT investigators yesterday began the slow process of ascertaining the cause of the helicopter crash which took the lives of King Power chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four other people at the weekend.
The sombre inquiry coincided with the opening of a book of condolences at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium, where fans flocked to leave tributes to the man who transformed their club, their city and left them with possibly the greatest fairytale success story in the history of English football.
Investigators have already ruled out the presence of a police drone as the cause of the horrific accident in the club’s car park.
Leicestershire Police have handed over responsibility for the inquiry to the Department of Transport’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), which investigates all civil aircraft accidents in Britain.
Police did, however, move to dispel talk that one of their drones had been involved.
They said on their Twitter page that their drone had not been in flight when the helicopter left the stadium.
“We have recovered the digital flight data recorder [voice and data] … and one of our inspectors travelled back to Farnborough with it the same evening,” said the AAIB.
“Our inspectors … will today start working on the recorder, which was subject to intense heat as a result of the post-accident fire.
“Our inspectors are continuing to work with the police on site. We expect to be here until the end of the week, at which point we will transport the wreckage to our specialist facilities in Farnborough for more detailed examination. In the meantime, we are still gathering evidence as part of our investigation.”
The helicopter came down in a car park outside the ground about an hour after the end of a Premier League match. Police have named the other deceased as passengers Izabela Roza Lechowiczas, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, plus pilot Eric Swaffer.
The Italian maker of the helicopter, Leonardo SpA, has already announced it is ready to assist the investigation.
Thousands of Leicester fans, as well as the club’s players and members of Vichai’s family, have already been to the ground to lay toys, scarves and wreaths in tribute to the beloved owner, who took over the club in 2010 and oversaw their incredible rise from the second tier to Premier League title winners in 2016.
Leicester had been due to play a Cup match overnight but it was postponed and it is not yet certain that Sunday’s Premier League game away to Cardiff will go ahead.
