This subject is designed to develop students’ research knowledge and skills on how to plan and conduct original, culturally and ethically appropriate research from concept to completion. Based on their understanding of the literature and issues relevant to their practice, students will develop an original research question and critically analyse a range of research designs and methods, and identify the most appropriate design and methods to answer the question. With an ethical lens, students justify the potential risks and benefits of their proposed research to the study population, healthcare practice and policy as they develop and refine a feasible design that reflects methodological quality and rigor.
