Despite the massive contribution that has been made to the healthcare setup, there is still a wide range of challenges coming along. Increased cases of healthcare-related errors have continued to be noted. This is a major threat to sustainable healthcare delivery, and measures should be set to ensure that this challenge has been managed (Laroche et al., 2020). According to the journal of patient safety report, more than 210,000 deaths are barely caused by medical error-related cases in the world. In a breakdown, there are about 1200 deaths caused by medical errors, which is s worrying trend.

Hypothetically, measures and doctrines should be adopted to ensure that this global challenge has been managed and controlled. Error omission cases that are recorded have added up to 444,000. Medicare patients have outlined that one in four charges of experiencing injuries, harm, and death when patients have been admitted to the hospital. There are various forms of healthcare errors that are like to occur in a normal setup. The error of commission is caused by receiving too little or too much of the treatment processes (Antunez et al., 2019). An adverse omission of the procedure causes an error of omission due to inadequate treatment. Over the period, the error of communication between the involved parties has been caused by limited communication and sharing of ideas. In this regard, error in content and diagnostic that is either wrong, missed, or delayed have led to increased death rates.

Therefore, the research framework will outline these challenges and the baseline that has caused this error. It will outline meaningful measures that can be set to manage these issues. It will outline the role of the stakeholder and measures that should be put in place to ensure that services are offered professionally (Anderson, 2021). Besides that, it will outline the role of the government policy in managing this challenge.

Analyze and interpret research to frame a current healthcare-related problem using multiple sources.

Research is considered to be the creation of the new knowledge by having the use of the existing knowledge thus helping on creating a more creative way of having the generation of methodologies, concepts, and even way of understanding the concepts which are existing and the newly developed. In any research being conducted, there is the research topic that acts as the focal point for the activities that will be carried out and thus is confined within the activities being carried out (Merviö, 2022). The research proposal gives the light on having genuine research that is being developed and thus having the go-ahead of continuing with the research and also having the general idea on how the proposals which have been made would be improved on their general content. The research problem is the general topic that has been identified as the area of concern which would be needing some improvements to be done on it so that the research processes would be based on solving the issues identified in the recommendations (Walshe & Smith, 2017).

The current healthcare problem which I have identified on this research topic is the cost and the transparency issues in the profession of the healthcare environments whereby they have been noted to be having a major impact on the access to the healthcare services due to high cost and also having issues of transparency (Merviö, 2022). The research will be much focused on understanding the contributing factor to have a higher cost of healthcare services and also having the issues of transparency in the healthcare environments and thus giving some recommendations which will be applied and implemented on helping to solve the issue. In this research, the population will involve will be all ages of people and las having the patients and those that have heard the experiences before such as the elderly so that they can give their side of the reasoning other issues thus helping in developing a better solution based on recommendations given (Holloway & Galvin, 2016).
