Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject builds on students' knowledge of evidence based practice theory and skills in searching for and critiquing research evidence and then applies this knowledge to different kinds of evidence and practice contexts. Students will learn how to collaborate and effectively communicate within teams to prioritise actions and manage risks. They will learn how to search and critically evaluate the best available research evidence presented in clinical practice guidelines. They will also synthesise knowledge resources to determine the best available evidence. They will generate ideas and develop new resources that address complex problems in practice settings. This subject addresses La Trobe's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Essential. Innovation and Entrepreneurship entails developing the ability to tackle problems creatively, generating new ideas, taking calculated risks and creating change to achieve ambitions - now and in the future.
