This subject is the first of two subjects focusing on evidence-based practice and health research that lays the foundation for developing professionally-relevant competencies in nutrition research and evidence-based practice. It includes the study of research and evaluation methods applicable to the interpretation, application and conduct of nutrition research in nutrition and dietetic practice settings, using systematic and critical analysis approaches enshrined in the evidence-based practice approach. It uses problem-based and interactive learning to engage students in learning about the principles and applications of evidence-based practice, nutrition epidemiology, research paradigms, quantitative and qualitative research designs, data analysis, scientific writing and research ethics. This subject serves as a pre-requisite subject for further studies in health research design and planning and research implementation that follow in the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program.
