It will include an appreciation of descriptive statistics and will introduce students to simple multivariate/regression analysis using computer software (SPSS).
This module seeks to enable students to become critical users and readers of health related research. It further aims to provide the basic tools to enable students to carry out simple statistical analysis on data of varying types.
The current and future challenges in health and social care make it essential for front line practitioners to have leadership skills and be able to influence and manage change to improve the care and outcomes for service users and contribute to drive forward service improvement. This module will provide students with the theory underpinning leadership and the management of change and the opportunity to explore and discuss their application in the context of clinical practice.
The purpose of this module is to provide a critical understanding of the research process and methodological approaches to sound applied research. The module will be delivered in a systematic approach facilitating individual and group learning, and will stimulate the development of research skills that will enable learners to apply them in their work environment and contribute to strengthening the notion and implementation of evidence based practice.
