About this Unit
This unit will introduce skills for finding and using the best available evidence in health. This begins with understanding thinking systems, biases and why we often don’t accept, or respond, to facts, science and evidence. Students will learn the evidence-based practice process to formulate questions and find appropriate and relevant evidence from the unending amount of information available. The unit covers key concepts in how to read and understand a research paper. Students will develop skills for communicating evidence to strengthen arguments in academic writing and professional practice.
