An understanding of the research process and how critically evaluate research literature is essential in evidence-based health practice.

You will analyse and critique research methods and evidence with reference to real world experiences and develop the skills to design a viable and ethical research proposal that investigates a particular area of practice relevant to your specialisation and/or professional interest.
Course themes emphasised in this unit are ethical and responsible practice, and clinical informatics, eHealth and digital literacy.
