Evidence Applied to Professional Practice

Module code: NU4004 (double module)

In this module you will critically reflect on clinical practice, and construct a systematic review/service improvement project to address and review clinical/education/research focused areas of inquiry of your choosing.

You will demonstrate the ability to produce a systematic review/service improvement project throughout the conduct of this project, identifying and synthesising the current best practice and applying these to your improvement project. You will critically analyse the context of services and the potential challenges and solutions identified in your systematic review system from the perspective of a leader in the profession, and you will critically analyse the findings of your study and draw conclusions for practice, future research and personal learning.

This module will be taught through a varied selection of lectures, seminars and workshops, problem based, case studies, online activities and flipped learning.
