Research and Evidence in Practice - REHB5933

The unit prepares the student for the Masters' capstone project. Content focuses on the fundamentals of evidence and research as it applies to the field of Rehabilitation Counselling. Students will explore quantitative research models and concomitant statistical designs; qualitative research and protocol; and the integrative thinking behind mixed methods. Action research will be a focus of discussion and activities in-class. Students will learn and model the scientist/practitioner as critical consumers of research and advocates for evidence-based practice. Students will prepare for their capstone project by engaging the field and placement site in topic development, and through an initial, supporting literature review.
