This dissertation module is designed to support students in developing a research project, exploring a critical area of the students' own practice. It aims to allow students to demonstrate their ability to argue coherently, to gather evidence, to evaluate critically, and to synthesise various sources of data within an appropriate methodological framework.
The dissertation should build on students' past knowledge and experience, by evaluating changes in practice. It provides a vehicle through which students can define a health issue for in depth analysis. Students will normally be encouraged to explore secondary data through a literary review.
