Module description

About this module

Topic and type of study will be specific to each individual, enabling identification of a chosen area relevant to their profession and area of practice.

With the guidance of an advisory team, learning will be individualised to the topic students wish to investigate and the way in which they chose to carry out this work. 

The module will consolidate knowledge of the research process and methodology, and enable the student to transfer these skills to investigate, critically evaluate and reflect on aspects of practice within their chosen speciality. In additional, students will also develop a critical awareness of the relevant practical and ethical issues when carrying out the chosen type of investigation and reporting and presentation of all stages of this process.
