This subject will assist the student in developing a base of knowledge fundamental to nursing and midwifery practice through the development and application of research. The subject builds on knowledge commonly taught in undergraduate research programs. Common research designs used in the disciplines of nursing and midwifery will be examined, with a focus on both methodology and methods. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills to write a research question, develop aims and a hypothesis, and describe the process of constructing a systematic search strategy and an integrative review of the literature. The principles of ethical research will be discussed and the methods of data collection/generation and analysis will be identified and applied. Finally, avenues for the dissemination of research results will be explored.
Passing requirements: complete and submit all assessment items; achieve a cumulative score of at least 50% after the application of any penalties such as late penalties.
