Entry requirements

This research module is undertaken as part of a named programme award from the SSPRD framework at the Faculty of Health Studies. Entry requirements will therefore vary, dependant on the programme studied.

Learning and assessment

  • A one hour computer-based examination with short answer questions related to systematic reviews, research methods and analysis.
  • A 3000 word systematic review protocol for a chosen scenario

These will assess the student's understanding and utilisation of the elements of a systematic review. This includes the skill of critiquing research, understanding different research approaches, statistical tests, meta-analysis and the application of  findings in practice.
