A. The selected patients’ dependable variable will be measured before the introduction of the treatment.
B. The treatment will be then introduced and the dependable variable will be measured again after the treatment introduces.
X. On this simple method the effect of treatment will be equal to the level of the phenomenon after the treatment (B) minus the level of the phenomenon before the treatment (A) i.e.
X = B - A = result.
This is general and informal research modality and everybody can see the result.
In the second phase of the program two groups of patients will be selected. The patients will be divided into two groups. One group will be called tested patient to whom treatment will be introduced (B) and second group will be called control group of patient (C) to whom not introducing the treatment. The dependable variable is then measured in both the groups at the same time. The treatment impact is assessed by subtracting the value of the dependent variable in the control group from its value in the tested patient i.e.
Level of phenomenon after treatment (B) and Level of phenomenon without treatment (C)
Treatment effect (X) = B – C = Result.
This assumption of study will be the superior to see the impact of the treatment.
