Essay from the year 2010 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: A, Trident University, language: English, abstract: In this assignment I select an article from the Health Science literature that is written by Paul Ciechanowski and colleagues titled 'Relationship Styles and Mortality in Patients with Diabetes'. In this article data were collected and analyzed and I discussed whether the author discussed the theoretical framework upon which the research questions were formulated. I also answered whether the research questions were theory-based or instead derived from a specific problem statement. I also discussed if the researcher explicitly state assumptions that were drawn from the theoretical framework. To what extent was the methodology linked to a theoretical framework was also addressed. Finally, I discussed if the authors state whether their conclusions were consistent with existing theory and whether the authors discuss the development of new theory.
