About this Unit
In 2012 this unit will be replaced by 400865 - Evidence Based Practice. Research should be an important component of all health professionals’ practice. This unit prepares students to graduate as evidence-based professionals and competent research consumers, by advancing skills learned in earlier research units. The early stages of the unit will build on students’ previous study of research methods. Searching for, appraising, and summarising research in a relevant clinical area will be used to illustrate the process of evidence-based practice, and will provide a context for the further study of the technical principles of research. Barriers to the implementation of research in practice, policy-making, and health care planning will be explored.
