Synopsis

This unit is designed to allow students to implement the research protocol developed in the context of the prerequisite unit MAP5000 Research in Advanced Health Care Practice'. Students will develop skills in gathering data, interrogating it using acceptable analytical processes and develop an informed and defensible conclusion. Through an iterative and collaborative intellectual process with their supervisor, students will create a research report, which they will communicate in written format to a wider professional audience.

Successful completion of MAP5000 and MAP5010 with an overall grade of 70 Distinction or above may permit a student to apply for a graduate research program including the PhD at Monash University.

Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. Complete the collection of data in accordance with the norms of research informed investigation and the boundaries of any ethics approval.
  2. Organise, analyse and interpret data meaningfully and according to research norms.
  3. Synthesise critical arguments in relation to the existing literature about the topic.
  4. Demonstrate writing skills that meet the academic standards associated with a research informed investigation.
