Describe the relationship between the variables in your dataset by interpreting the Scatter Plot that you have created. You will describe this relationship by answering the following questions:

1. Insert the Scatter Plot you have created into your post.

2. Describe the following characteristics of the correlation result as interpreted from the Scatter Plot you created:

– strength

– direction

3. Is this a Pearson r Scatter Plot or a Spearman Rho Scatter Plot? Justify your answer.

4. Based on your interpretation of the Scatter Plot you have created, formulate a null hypothesis consistent with these results.

5. Are there outliers in this data set? How do you assess for these when interpreting a Scatter Plot?

6. What additional information do you need to determine if this correlation is statistically significant? Does the Scatter Plot provide this information? If the correlation is statistically significant, does that mean you reject or fail to reject H0?

Psychosis and schizophrenia greatly impact the brain’s normal processes, which interfere with the ability to think clearly.

Psychosis and schizophrenia greatly impact the brain’s normal processes, which interfere with the ability to think clearly. When symptoms of these disorders are uncontrolled, patients may struggle to function in daily life. However, patients often thrive when properly diagnosed and treated under the close supervision of a psychiatric mental health practitioner. For this Assignment, as you examine the patient case study in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat patients presenting with psychosis and schizophrenia.

To prepare for this Assignment:
Review this week’s Learning Resources, including the Medication Resources indicated for this week.
Reflect on the psychopharmacologic treatments you might recommend for the assessment and treatment of patients with schizophrenia-related psychoses.
The Assignment: 5 pages

Obtaining the validity of the research study is key while ensuring research-based interventions are implemented.

Professor and class,

Cancer research is so abundant and vast that it is important for the potential research participant to understand all the risk and benefits to give proper informed consent. When thinking of potential benefits and harm related to cancer research 1) understanding the process, 2) understanding all or the risk and benefits of the study and 3) being able to articulate all this information to the study participants is important. Outside of signs and symptoms other risk benefits includes beliefs, age education, capacity, and treatment options. If these risk and benefits are not assessed prior to the patient giving consent it negates essential information for informed consent (Kim, Bruinooge, Roberts, Ison, Lin, Gore, & Schilsky, 2017).

The VA conducts a lot of research, in our infusion units we are often asked to treat patients who have opted into certain pharmaceutical cancer research therapies. I also ensure that the nursing and pharmacy staff is briefed before signing on to administer any medications. The researcher will normally go over portions of the protocol with staff. There has been competing views, normally ethical. But more often those issues and uncertainty subside after knowing the patients have received proper informed consent and all questions have been answered. I have learned that educating the nursing staff giving the therapies to empower them to also be able to answer any questions has helped. Obtaining the validity of the research study is key while ensuring research-based interventions are implemented.

Reference
When implementing research-based interventions there may be objections and concerns. Palliative research interventions from what I have seen have been the most difficult to obtain buy in. Patients, families, nursing staff, and other medical staff need to understand the side effects of research chemotherapies to not increase the pain and suffering in someone who is transitioning into death (Enzinger, Wind, Frank, McCleary, Porter, Cushing, & Schrag). Explaining decisions made to stakeholders will include prioritizing the research and how implementation of the interventions, identifying conflicts & barriers, addressing needs & concerns of stakeholders, and making recommendations towards adjustments of the intervention as needed. Engaging stakeholders and ensuring there are open lines of communication will ensure success and compliance in objections to research interventions.

What parts of the lawmaking process does a nurse have an opportunity to influence the final bill passage?

Nurse’s Role in Influencing the Legislative Process

In a Microsoft Word document of 2-3 pages formatted in APA 7 style, you will answer three questions related to your opportunity as a nurse and an advocate. The first two questions relate to influencing a bill that is traveling through the legislative process. The third question refers you to the social determinants of health and asks you to think specifically on your role as a nurse in influencing social determinants of health.

Answer the following questions:

• What parts of the lawmaking process does a nurse have an opportunity to influence the final bill passage?

• List at least two ways that this influence can take place. In your opinion, would one way be preferable over the other?

• Reviewing the social determinants of health, select one to respond to this question:

o What role can nurses play in promoting health status through policy changes directly affecting this social determinant?

***Write each question as a new topic area and then follow with a paragraph or two to answer the question. You may find it necessary to search for answers to the questions outside of the assigned reading.
