Overview

This Applied Research Methods module primarily aims to prepare advanced health and social care practitioners for practice-based research. It enables you to explore the variety of research methods that are used in health service and practice research.

We will examine both primary and secondary research approaches including qualitative and quantitative methods, clinical audit and service evaluation.

You will be expected to identify a practice or professional dilemma consistent with your programme of study that may be investigated using one of these means. You will take this forward should you continue to the dissertation module.

The module aims to equip you with the understanding and skills to take forward a realistic, small-scale research project of your own using one of the methods studied.

You will be assessed 100% through coursework.
