This subject is designed to support health professionals and those working in the health field to find, appraise, and apply evidence relevant to population, community and individual health needs. In this subject you will develop essential skills in evidence-based practice and policy, including framing relevant practice questions and searching to find research evidence addressing these questions. You will then be able to critically appraise research evidence based on an understanding of research study designs; and applying the results of those studies to individuals, communities and populations. This includes a foundational understanding of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics. These skills will enable you to independently evaluate the worth of newly proposed health policy and clinical management options.
