CLINICALLY APPLIED RESEARCH IN PROSTHETICS AND ORTHOTICS
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students develop foundation skills necessary to plan simple research projects in prosthetics and orthotics clinical practice. Discrete project parts are emphasised including: justification, aims, method, data presentation, interpretation and ethics. Through both independent and facilitated learning, students have the opportunity to develop their ability to: write well evidenced arguments, consider a range of basic research designs common to prosthetics and orthotics, understand different data types and measurement scales, select basic statistical tests, present data and draw logical interpretations. These skills are designed to establish a strong foundation for future subjects and independent work in future practice.
