Module overview

Healthcare professionals should be able to engage with different forms of inquiry (such as research, audit and service evaluation) and understand how these can help inform practice. This module begins by focusing on the reasons we carry out research and other forms of inquiry, how questions arise from practice, and how we attempt to answer them. You will then be supported through the decision-making processes involved in developing a plan to answer a question that is relevant to your profession. The plan you develop will be what you carry out in the Research Project module in your third year.
