Synthesis of the literature and creation a research proposal

For Part 3 of the research review paper, you will do a synthesis of the literature and create a research proposal

Using the knowledge gained from work on Parts 1(Breast Cancer: Introduction and 2: Literature Review), identify one research question that has not been investigated previously or that you would address in a different way than you’ve read about so far. This is sometimes known as gap analysis, in that you are looking for a gap in the existing body of knowledge where new research would contribute to an understanding of the issue in a way that could improve clinical practice for the nurse practitioner and improve patient outcomes.

1-Your research question must be clearly related to Parts 1 and 2. Be sure to state this clearly as a research question.

2-Explain why you think this is a gap in existing research (relate directly to published research), its clinical relevance (why you think your specific research question is an important area to explore), and your ideas about research design (how you would conduct research to investigate it).

3- Include a discussion of whether your question would lend itself to a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed design; why; and how you might be able to acquire participants for the study
