Increasing importance is being attached to evidence-based practice and policy in healthcare systems around the world.
This reflects a growing awareness of the necessity for health care and health services to make best use of science and technology in delivering high quality and cost-effective services and in systematically evaluating their outcomes, whether in terms of individual benefit, service attainment, consumer satisfaction or public health improvement.
All healthcare professionals are now expected to have a sophisticated understanding of how research methods and research findings can be exploited in the delivery, development and evaluation of services for the benefit of patients and clients.
This course assumes that students already possess at least some basic theoretical knowledge of the process and methods of research.
The aim of this course is to give students an extensive, detailed analytical and critical view of nursing and healthcare research. This course provides a firm basis from which research ideas can be developed.
