6cp; 2hpw (lecture), 2hpw (tutorial)
Requisite(s): 99647 Clinic Level 6


This subject provides the essential research methodology foundation for progressing into Evaluating TCM: Theory, Practice and Research 2 (91615). The subject is designed to enable students to develop a solid grasp of the research process in acupuncture, Chinese medicine and the health sciences. It also further develops the students' critical thinking skills and their ability to apply them to clinical practice environments. Together, both this subject and 91615 provide an important foundation for students considering further development of their critical thinking skills through formalised learning pathways in honours, master's (by research) or doctorate research programs. Equally, the subjects provide students with the knowledge, skills and capabilities to engage in evidence-based approaches and evaluations of their own clinical practice and inquiry-oriented approach to clinical assessment and evaluation.

This subject also meets the different standards of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) certification.
