Unit of study_

Research and Evidence - NURS6030

Year - 2018

This unit of study builds on foundational research and inquiry methods introduced within the context of the pre-requisite units to prepare students to recognise the quality and appropriateness of research for translation into nursing knowledge and practice. The process of inquiry is reviewed in relation to clinical questioning, selection of appropriate study designs and literature, consideration of patient and family values and the organisational, ethical and policy environment. Research methods are examined within the context of judging the quality and appropriateness of published research findings for application to practice. Students will be introduced to evidence implementation frameworks that are inclusive of evaluation research techniques.
