Aims/Description: This module aims to develop your skills of research critique to enable you to critically discuss research findings and lessons from data and reports. This will enable you to develop the skills and confidence to promote and inform best midwifery practice, and to advocate and support women when making informed decisions. This module will introduce you to key principles behind evidence-based practice, including its relevance, the role that research plays within it, how to determine which methods are suitable for different problems and the outcome measures you will encounter. You will also develop your ability to examine, interpret and present real-world midwifery and health care data to explain the robustness of the approach taken

Restrictions on availability: This module is only available to those students who are registered on the Pre-registration Masters in Midwifery programme.
