Course Description

This course is the second of the two courses on research process and evidence based practice (EBP). The two courses will explore the principles of human subject research, the necessity for research in knowledge development, and breadth of research methodologies. In this second course of the series, students will move beyond being knowledgeable consumers of research to becoming interprofessional team members who 1) participate in the design of qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, 2) understand the selection of data analysis tools for qualitative and quantitative research, 3) develop skills in writing about research methodology for both proposals and research papers, 4) become adept at displaying findings from research, and 5) demonstrate the ability to summarize and interpret research findings.
