Discussion Board week 6
Citing scholarly resources in your work is required throughout your program. Follow the instructions in the bullets below to direct you where to find resources on effective search strategies. This week, you will support your organizational ethics presentation using at least two sources. Share your chosen topic and the key words and search strategies you used with your peers so that you can review each other’s work and provide peer-to-peer feedback. Also, describe what you think are the most important search features when narrowing down topics in the databases and why.

Betty, the chief nursing officer, had to make a decision about buying 120 new hospital beds for patient rooms. After she interviewed nurse mangers at the units where the beds were going to be placed, Betty compiled her findings and decided to contact a well-known equipment company to obtain prices and contracts. The equipment company’s executive salesperson, Jim, discussed options at length with her and invited her and her significant other to an upcoming all-expenses-paid lavish retreat at a five-star hotel in Hawaii to see demonstrations of the beds and to hear a comprehensive sales pitch. Betty thought to herself, “We badly need some relaxation and stress relief. Hawaii would be so much fun. Would it be wrong for us to go?”
· If you were Betty, what would you do? Give your rationale. Justify your answer with an ethical framework—a theory, approach, or principle.
· Do you consider this situation a conflict of interest? Why or why not? Give your rationale.
· What policies, if any, should be in place regarding a scenario such as this one? Do you have any such policies in place at work for similar situations? Do such policies impact day-to-day activities in any way? Explain.

Ethics in Healthcare
The topic I chose to research is: Exhibiting Poor Quality in Performance and Apathy in Goal Attainment. According to Grewal, Kataria, and Dhawan (2016), conducting a literature review is important when undertaking a research study. Literature review informs the direction the study is to take, and establishes known knowledge on a specific subject matter. The authors indicate that a good literature review is informed by the search strategies that are adopted by the researcher.
My research strategy included conducting a literature review and searching the library databases for peer reviewed journals. It also helps formulate the search strategy by identifying the essential concepts that can answer the question (Hastings, C., & Fisher, C. A. (2014). A poorly prepared research question poses numerous risks or threats such as : researchers are tending to assume an erroneous design; it can create mistakes and hinder the thought process, including obstruction of the development of a clear protocol; it can jeopardize publication efforts; it is difficult for the reader to determine whether the answer is significant when the question is not clear; an unclear question can make it difficult to interpret the results of the study; an unclear research question makes it difficult to determine whether or not a study achieves inclusion criteria for systematic review and meta-analysis; and finally, when the research question is not clearly stated, people reading the study may fail to understand the objective of the study, and this could negatively influence the possibility of the study being cited by other investigators (Thabane, L., Thomas, T., Ye, C., & Paul, 2012).
Initially I had some difficulties in identifying each of the parts of my research questions, but after the research I conducted, I think that I was able to find the right components for my presentation. According to Thabane, L., Thomas, T., Ye, C., & Paul, J. (2012). “The success of any research process relies, in part, on how well investigators are able to translate a clinical problem into a research question—a task that is not so simple for novice investigators” (p. 1).
