To scrutinise the knowledge that informs evidence based practice, health and social care professionals need to be critical thinkers who are research-literate.
This module explores the different ways that health and social research is carried out, with a focus on critical appraisal, research design, data collection and analysis. The module covers qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research. This learning enables students to embark more confidently and creatively on their own dissertations, as well as helping them to engage more critically with the research of others.
