This subject gives students skills for research and/or professional practice through learning and designing quality improvement and translational research. Students extend their understanding of the practicalities of conducting a project, including approval processes, applying for funding, ethical approval and collecting and managing data.

Students analyse local service-level data and apply quality improvement tools to identify and justify a problem in current care delivery that presents an opportunity for improving person-centred palliative care; search for, synthesise and appraise evidence for potential solutions; and devise an aim and methods for evaluation.

This subject supports students to develop both written and oral presentations to use in their workplace to build support for undertaking quality improvement and research projects within a local service setting.
