Overview

This Evidence Based Practice module can be studied as part of a full-time or part-time programme.

It aims to explore and critique theories, models and strategies for evidence-based practice, with application to the health and social care setting. We will examine the purposes, uses and limitations of various approaches to evidence-based practice, with consideration of political and economic dimensions.

We'll consider the concepts of decision-making from the practitioner, purchaser, provider and consumer perspectives. We will also explore some available tools for critical-appraisal and the transfer of evidence to professional knowledge.

The module will include sharing the work of experts, researchers and the student group for discussion and critique.

You will be assessed 100% through coursework.  This module can be taken as a standalone module with 200 hours of study over 12 weeks or it can be part of a programme of study.
