This course provides an introduction to a range of methodologies used in health research. An emphasis is placed on a broad appreciation of the methodologies rather than a focus on the philosophical perspectives that underpin the approaches. Key terms in research are emphasised and a beginner introduction to health statistics is given. With direction and using a structured template students are encouraged to begin critique of a range of research articles. The place of ethics in research will be complimented with discussion of research in nursing practice. The bulk of the course material will be delivered online although students will also have the opportunity for either a face to face workshop or a virtual equivalent to discuss content with peers.
