Q3. What are the mean value and standard deviation (SD) for baseline weight (kg) for the DMPA group? What was the mean value and standard deviation (SD) for weight (kg) at 12 months for the DMPA group? What is the mean value and standard deviation (SD) for change weight gain (kg) for the DMPA group?
Answers may vary. Clinical implications may include patient education on the potential risk of weight gain for DMPA users or the potential benefit of exercise in maintaining weight for TCu 380A users. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has contraception information for consumers and healthcare providers at http://www.cdc.gov/reproductivehealth/UnintendedPregnancy/Contraception.html and obesity, weight, and healthy lifestyle information at http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/index.html. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a healthy weight resource that contains family and provider information including BMI calculator at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/education/lose_wt/index.htm.
Q10. Moore, Finch, Mac Arthur, and Ward (2018) implemented a clinical simulation intervention to cross-train staff and enhance perceptions of teamwork when hospital units are merged for budget reasons. The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test result was p = 0.012 for the perceptions of teamwork. Discuss the meaning of this result. This article can be found in the Resource Library for this text.
The Moore et al. (2018) study result of p = 0.012 for perceptions of teamwork indicated that the clinical simulation intervention was significantly effective in promoting the nursing staff’s perceptions of teamwork. The result was significant because p = 0.012 is less than alpha set a 0.05 for this study.
