Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: School of Nursing, Midwifery & Nutrition (pre 2015)

Practice development is a process that can include both discovering new evidence for practice as well as translating existing evidence into practice. Students will explore contemporary theories of knowledge translation and practice development. There is a strong focus on the application of student's previously acquired knowledge and skills in research through the implementation of a service-learning project that will either investigate an aspect of clinical practice, or the development of a practice development plan based on existing evidence for practice.

  • implement a service learning project or develop a practice development plan for implementation;
  • discuss the concepts of practice development and knowledge translation;
  • identify each of the components of the PARIHS framework;
