Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evidence of support [ Time Frame: one time ]
    Identify significant patterns. Documents, interview, surveys and the quantitative instrument will be analyzed with an inductive cross-case analysis. Inductive analysis means that the patterns, themes, and categories emerged out of the data rather than being imposed on them prior to data collection and analysis. A cross-case analysis means that the information will be grouped together according to answers from different people, themes, perspectives or issues. Then, a content analysis will be conducted which includes the process of identifying, coding, and categorizing the primary patterns in the data. In the final step, the data will be interpreted. Interpretation, by definition, goes beyond description. Interpretation means attaching significance to what was found offering explanations, drawing conclusions, making inferences, building linkages, attaching meaning, imposing order and dealing with rival explanations
