    Syllabus

    Healthcare systems are demanding that health professionals practice from a research base and this unit supports the student to develop an evidence-based healthcare approach to their practice. This unit explores how research and theory contribute to knowledge development in a professional discipline, and explores the relevance of linking research, theory, and practice in nursing. Sources of evidence for nursing practice, barriers and strategies to adopting an evidence-based approach will be explored and strategies identified to move research findings into clinical decision-making.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Evaluate the rigour of research reports using a systematic process of critique;

    2. Explain how research can be used as a basis for advocacy and clinical decisions and to inform decision-making;

    3. Understand a range of paradigms, frameworks and research designs applied in nursing and health; and

    4. Identify current trends in research for clinical practice including guidelines and research dissemination strategies.
