SDDM5314: Research 5

In Year 3, students will continue their research project activities. At the completion of this unit of study, students present a preliminary report on their individual/group research projects. An important aim of this unit of study is to foster an evidence­based approach to clinical practice and strong inquisitive approach to learning throughout the course. Students will continue to apply skills gained in DMD 1 and DMD 2 in identifying different study types, critically appraising clinical research literature and assigning levels of evidence to published research. Students may be required to attend classes at multiple locations.
