Description

This module aims to introduce healthcare practitioners to the research process, as relevant to their evidence-based practice and to enable students to develop their ability to appraise research evidence, to explore how this underpins clinical practice and to identify how the existing evidence base could be developed.

Participants will develop their understanding of a variety of research methods, to competently critique contemporary research evidence and to identify research questions that will enable the development of their own clinical practice.

Mode of Delivery
Online learning and self-study - NOTE: In the autumn term, due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, face-to-face teaching will be limited to clinically focused modules incorporating practical skills teaching. This will remain the case throughout the 2020/21 academic year, until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow a greater proportion of on-site teaching. At the time of writing, it is not known when this will be.
