Identify Research Study Components

Review chapter on components of research study and the Johnston et al article for this assignment (attached).

1.      Analyze this passage to identify the research topic, problem statement, significance of the problem, and purpose of the study.


o    In the United States, over a million people are living with HIV infection. Another half million have died from AIDS since the beginning of the HIV epidemic. The prevalence of HIV has increased among women, but especially among minority women. A larger proportion of minority women are uninsured when compared with nonminority women.

o    Treatment of HIV has increased the life expectancy of patients. Viral suppression, however, requires greater than 90% adherence to expensive medications for life. Treatment fatigue has been linked to patients dropping out of care. No studies have been published that explore the experience of treatment fatigue from the perspectives of uninsured, minority women with HIV infection. This phenomenological study seeks to explore the lived experience of treatment fatigue in HIV infection among uninsured, minority women.

a)         The research topic,

b)          Problem Statement,

c)         Significance of the Problem,

d)         The Purpose of the study.
