|Rose’s article 1||O’Halloran et al. (2017) used Kaplan–Meier survival analysis to estimate the 2012-213 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data to evaluate the state and national influenza vaccination coverage within a representative adult population with high-risk conditions.||The survey includes respondents with cardiovascular diseases, asthma, emphysema, or diabetes, and cancer. The focus of the survey is to capture data that will be used to ascertain the within and between group differences||The use of inferential statistics supported the justification and linkages between predictors and outcome variables.||The investigators relied on the participants’ self-reported vaccination and chronic illness status, which could be erroneous. The response rates were low.||The findings support the administration of influenza vaccines to people with high-risk healthcare conditions.|
|Rose’s article 2||The study involved a systematic literature review of randomized controlled trials.||The researchers’ inclusion criteria included randomized controlled trials that involved primary care physicians and evaluated strategies for enhancing vaccination rate among the chronically ill.||They used the Cochrane risk-of-bias tool to assess the risk of bias.
Findings from the reviewed presented evidence-based conclusions from multiple studies.
|The authors overlooked pertinent publications that were not based on randomized controlled trials.
Studies had very small samples
Highly heterogeneous studies.
|The findings raised concerns about the fewer population of chronically ill patients who are vaccinated.
The study recommended reminder systems for physicians.
