This course aims to prepare students to examine the place of research in the work environment and its interactions with that environment.
|Course director||Dr Sheila Rodgers|
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.
The organisational culture has been argued to be the most important factor in determining the level of integration of research in the work place.
This course sets out to enable students to examine the application and use of research in the work setting and the inherent issues.
This course enables those who have an interest in research to develop a critical awareness of its application in practice. This will be achieved by providing students with the opportunity to conduct a project in an appropriate work based/related setting.
At the heart of the course is the work based/related learning contract drawn up between the personal academic advisor and the student. The learning contract will be designed to enable the student to develop a critical understanding of specified areas of research. Guidance for the development of a learning contract will be provided.
