HPER71-113: Generating Evidence Using Research Methods

Description

The “scientific” response to the Covid-19 pandemic has shown that most research does not advance science. In fact, it is estimated that 85% of research is avoidably wasted. Reasons include research that is not published, or that does not address an important research question, or is of poor quality. This subject is for students who wish to develop good research questions and design high-quality studies. It complements the Evidence Based Practice and Policy subject, giving you more in-depth knowledge about the different primary research study designs and their contribution to the strength of evidence in a field. This subject will guide you to be able to construct a high-quality research protocol to a publishable standard.
