For this Discussion, you will evaluate quantitative research questions and hypotheses in assigned journal articles in your discipline and consider the alignment of theory, problem, purpose, research questions and hypotheses, and design. You will also identify the type of quantitative research design the authors used and explain how it was implemented. You will also complete online training in the protection of human research participants.With these thoughts in mind, refer to the Journal Articles document for your assigned articles for this Discussion. If your last name starts with A through I, use Article A. If your last name starts with J through R, use Article B. If your last name starts with S through Z, use Article C.Post a critique of the research study in which you:Evaluate the research questions and hypotheses using the Research Questions and Hypotheses Checklist as a guideIdentify the type of quantitative research design used and explain how the researchers implemented the designAnalyze alignment among the theory, problem, purpose, research questions and hypotheses, and designPrimary Care Utilization and Mental Health Diagnoses

BACKGROUND: Patients requiring interpreters may
utilize the health care system differently or more
frequently than patients not requiring interpreters;
those with mental health issues may be particularly
difficult to diagnose.
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether adult patients
requiring interpreters exhibit different health care
utilization patterns and rates of mental health diagnoses than their counterparts.
DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study examining patient
visits to primary care (PC), express care (EC), or the
emergency department (ED) of a large group practice
within 1 year.
PATIENTS: Adult outpatients (n=63,525) with at least
one visit within the study interval and information
regarding interpreter need.
MAIN MEASURES: Mean visit counts, counts of mental
disorders, and somatic symptom diagnoses between
patients requiring interpreters (IS patients) and not
requiring interpreters (non-IS patients).
KEY RESULTS: IS patients (n=1,566) had a higher
mean number of visits overall (3.10 vs. 2.52), in PC
(2.54 vs. 1.95), and in ED (0.53 vs. 0.44) than non-IS
patients (all p
