This course will develop students' abilities to be critical consumers of research. Studies will focus on extending students' knowledge about the purpose of research, research design and various methodologies and approaches including quantitative, qualitative and critical and post-modern influences.

They will learn about evidence based practice and write a critical literature review for their own area of practice.
