An important outcome of Masters level study is that learners should be able to design and execute independent projects that consolidate, build upon and/or apply the capabilities developed through their program of study in their workplace. This course, taken at, or towards the end of the program, is part of a 'capstone experience' that enables students to synthesise the knowledge and skills developed in earlier courses of their program into an approved project focused on a key aspect of their interest or specialisation.
This course is aimed at students who want to practically apply research into a healthcare situation. With guidance from a member of academic staff as supervisor, the student will plan and undertake a project that will implement research into the healthcare situation. Topics such as processes to implement research, planning a project and report writing will be covered in online tutorials to support you in achieving the required objectives. Students will use knowledge from previous subjects within the Master's program to search for and evaluate research literature and apply and evaluate it in their context.
