Subject outline

In this subject you learn to systematically review literature on health care practices and beliefs. The classes are particularly beneficial for you commencing postgraduate research degrees. Students learn to refine a research question, comprehensively search for relevant scientific literature and other information, evaluate research validity using scientifically endorsed and standardised methods, identify and quantify intervention effects, pool data in meta-analysis and summarise findings. Review outcomes can be applied to inform clinical practices or be integrated into introductory arguments in a research thesis.
