This module is aimed at enabling persons working within the health sector to gain knowledge of research and critical appraisal skills, including confidence as critical readers of health related research and literature and its application to practice. The module has been developed to meet the needs of practitioners who are expected to deliver evidence based practice. Health care practitioners have a duty to ensure that the care and services delivered are both efficient and effective. To fulfil this expectation, they need to develop a range of skills associated with evidence-based care. Firstly, they must be able to find the evidence. This involves accessing library resources and developing a range of IT skills to search the literature effectively. Secondly, once the evidence is located, they must be able to make sense of it and critically appraise it. Competence in these activities requires understanding of research methods and the critiquing process. The module also aims to improve and develop writing and referencing skills.
This module aims to equip student nurses to work with individuals, service users, carers and the multi disciplinary team when planning and providing appropriate evidence based care. The concepts of Clinical Governance and clinical assessment and decision making will be explored. The module will build on previous knowledge to facilitate the development of theoretical and practical knowledge so that the individual can recognise and act when there is a risk to the client/service user of physical or mental health problems across the lifespan.
