About this Unit
This unit will introduce and develop the concepts and principles of evidence-based practice as applied to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and explore specific aspects of research development. Furthermore, this unit will focus on the clinical applications of such research- based evidence and highlight integrative methods combining TCM and biomedical diagnostics and disease management. Students will gain an understanding of the complexities, practicality, and applied methodologies used in research to establish the validity and reliability of TCM theories, diagnostics and interventional techniques in addition to the appropriateness of various outcome measures for research and clinical practice. This unit will provide students with a practical skillset designed to facilitate location, evaluation, integration, and application of scientific research evidence in clinical practice whilst also preparing students for development of research proposals in subsequent units such as Research Protocol Design & Practice.
