Health Research in Practice

10 credits at Level 7

Module leaders - Professor Jim McCambridge and Dr Duncan Stewart


This module aims to facilitate learning for students who engage with research data or with the research process, developing skills in the critical analysis of research. The learning content addresses engagement with existing research produced by others, and application of such findings to practice.

The module will also prepare you for the conduct of the early stages of the research process, so that you will be able to use research, informed by insights gained through your own experience of starting to do research. The module assumes no detailed prior knowledge of the research process, but does require you to come with an open and enquiring mind.
