NURS 406: Quantitative Research Response Instructions ASSIGNMENT: Chapters 6 & 7 discuss the types of Quantitative (QN) research designs. This assignment is designed to assess your knowledge of QN research designs and your ability to apply your knowledge to discuss QN research with your classmates. BOOK NAME: Evidence-Based Practice for Nurses Topic Read chapter 6 & 7 of your textbook on Quantitative research designs. Scenario: The standard care for diabetic patients with stage 2 or 3 pressure ulcers includes the use of antibiotic creams and daily dressing changes. Healing times can be weeks to months. It has been theorized that low-pressure pulsatile lavage may decrease the healing time for diabetic patients with stage 2 and 3 pressure ulcers in addition to the standard treatment.
