Research subject



This subject offers students the opportunity to undertake a research activity to identify and evaluate a nurse practitioner's scope of practice, target patient group or service delivery model within their chosen specialty. It allows students to address relevant issues facing clinical nursing leaders in health care service design and delivery. This subject is designed to assist and guide students to develop skills of service analysis, clinical audits, behaviour change, communication, writing for publication and business proposals. Research skills are extended on those developed in 92790 Evidence for Informing Practice and 92612 Research in Health or equivalent practice. This subject supports the research skill capacity and capability building of students undertaking the Nurse Practitioner master's program.

Students are supported to translate research and evidence into work-integrated and practice-orientated learning by the engagement of stakeholders relevant to their clinical field/facility. On completion of this subject, students are enabled to explore and evaluate practice, monitor clinical performance, and plan for the translation of evidence into care practices as clinical leaders.
