Applied Psychology:A large medical facility is experiencing too many missed appointments in its primary and specialty care clinics. The facility has noticed that not all patients respond well to reminder calls regarding follow-up appointments. Some patients do not answer calls and do not seem to respond to voice mail requesting they call the facility. The result is that many follow-up appointments are missed. Facility management have read articles that indicate people respond very well to text messages and would like to see which method provides the least amount of missed appointments. Missed appointments are tracked in the facility database on a monthly basis.
Write a 525- to 750-word paper that addresses the following for your chosen scenario: Format your paper according to APA guidelines. Example You have a hypothesis that two drugs have different effects on lowering anxiety. You would have anxiety scores for drug A and anxiety scores for drug B (all after 4 weeks of treatment) to run inferential analysis for after 4 weeks. Because you did not state a direction in your hypotheses (better than or worse than) this will be a two-tailed test. You are looking for differences in either direction. You would set your alpha level of .05 and have a sample for each group of 30 people that were volunteers for the study.
Requirements: 525-750 words | .doc file
Clearly define the problem or issue you are addressing. Provide a brief background of any research you have found that might affect your research hypothesis. Create a research hypothesis based on the information provided in each scenario. You have been given a data set (MicrosoftÂ® ExcelÂ® document) with two sets of interval data (just the numbers as you must decide what they represent such as method A results or method B results). This means you are going to test one thing against another such as which method works best (step 1 of the steps to hypothesis testing). State the null and research hypotheses. Explain whether these hypotheses require a one-tailed test or two-tailed test and explain your rationale. Describe the sample you will use. Sample size will be 30 for each group which are provided in your data set. Explain what type of sampling you selected. Do you think you would also collect some descriptive data such as gender age or shift? Why do you think it makes sense to collect descriptive data? Null hypothesis is H0: drug A = drug B Research hypothesis is H1: drug A â‰ drug B Dependent variable: anxiety score changed after treatment Independent variable: drug treatment
