The source of the data collection includes identifying the colleges, universities, and education centers that offered nursing education.

Step 3

Method of data collection

The data was collected by analyzing the required courses that were either exclusively about chronic wounds or included information about chronic wounds. The information used in this study also had this information available online to the public by publishing the course description.

Step 4

Data collection

Data was collected by gathering the course descriptions online that were available from June and July of 2012 from the 114 centers in Spain that offer a nursing degree.

Step 5

Findings

Of the 114 centers with nursing degree programs, 95 post course content online which make it possible to analyze 2,258 courses. In 60 of these centers none of the courses included the concept of pressure ulcer prevention, and the course content posted by 36 centers made no mention of their treatment. None of these course descriptions contained any information related to pain management due to chronic wounds. Of 728 elective courses, only one was related to chronic wounds. (Romero-Collado, Raurell-Torreda, Zabaleta-Del-Olmo, Homs-Romero, & Bertran-Noguer, 2015).

Conclusion:

In conclusion, this study evaluated information made available to the public online by various educational centers offering nursing degrees in Spain. The findings of this study determined that there was not one course that discussed pain management in patients with chronic wounds. Additionally, this study found that treating pressure ulcers were addressed more than preventing pressure ulcers. In all, this study found that there is a theory-practice gap in the field of nursing in Spain.

Step 6

Researchers developed different variables:- number of years of the 4 years undergraduate degree in nursing for which online access to courses was available.- Total number of required courses, basic courses, guided practice and final project.- Number of required courses with a title explicitly containing the word chronic wound. And number of required courses, basic courses that included any of the following content: pain  and chronic wounds, pain control or management, prevention of pressure ulcer (p.53)

Step 7

Develop a plan to manage data and transfer them to analytic software

Univariate descriptive method were used to analize the data. IBM SPSS statistic 19  was used for analysis (p.54).

Conclusion: 

In all research it is necessary to carry out a data collection, in this way this is a fundamental step to be successful in our results. Data collection is a component of research in all fields of study. The goal for all data collection is to capture quality evidence that allows analysis to lead to the formulation of convincing and credible answers to the questions that have been posed. The most widely used data collection method is the survey, which is used to gather information directly from respondents about their experiences, behaviors, attitudes, or perceptions. Other data collection methods include paper-and-pencil tools, online means, computer-based technologies, social media, handheld devices, audio-delivery devices, and mining of “big data.” Each has specific advantages and disadvantages related  with the goals of the research study.
