With the increased emphasis on research-based practice over the last decade, our module ensures that established practitioners who wish to undertake further educational programmes are conversant with research methodology and the application of theory to practice in their field.
The ability to be analytical and insightful regarding research reports is an invaluable skill for anyone who wishes to provide effective and appropriate care in their individual sphere of practice. Today's practitioner works in an expanding field of multi-professional, multi-agency collaboration, and so requires insight into the efficacy of research in these disciplines, too.
This module will explore your existing knowledge of the research process,. You'll also develop your critical analysis skills further, and have the opportunity to appraise the ethical dimensions of research studies. Assessment will be a research report.
Established healthcare practitioners who'd like to explore research methodology, and the application of theory to practice, in more depth.
