Evidence-Based Practice

This course gives you the opportunity to study the central aspects of evidence-based practice and to focus these on your specific area of health or social-care practice. The emphasis is on the integration of theory and practice within a multi-professional working and learning environment and intends to develop a lifelong ability to understand how evidence is generated, retrieved, critically appraised and employed in practice. Such a focus ensures you are equipped with the necessary foundations to develop an evidence-based approach to practice throughout your career. The course enables you to: develop the skills and attitudes necessary to perform detailed evidence-based practice and research in your area of interest; develop your understanding of the necessary research methodologies to locate and appraise research relevant to your health or social care practice; and develop a lifelong-learning attitude and an inquisitive approach to practice. There is a flexible approach to course delivery. Home students can choose to study either by attending taught sessions at the University or through distance or blended delivery methods. International students can choose to study either by attending taught sessions at the University or through distance learning only.
