Research & Evidence-Based Practice II
This course provides students with the opportunity to develop the methods section (Chapter 3) of their research project with the guidance of the research advisors. Relevant contents like sampling methods and participants selection, reliability, validity, and threats to research will be discussed. In this course, students will also be introduced to the process of paper appraisal/research critique, ethical issues in clinical research and human subject protection, components of consent form, and Institutional Review Board process. Students are required to complete Institutional Review Board training modules, and ultimately submit completed research methods and the proposal (combining Chapters 1 and 3) to the Institutional Review Board.
