Public Health Research Skills

Year 2 Semester 2

Credits 20 

By the end of this module you should have a greater understanding of the research process.  This is in preparation for the Dissertation module in Year 3. This will be achieved through progressing your understanding of study designs, advancing your ability to work with data and develop data collection tools, and teaching you the method and skills related to evidence based practice.  This module also prepares you for the Public Health Research in Practice module in year 3 where you will learn to apply the evidence (in other words how to translate research into actual interventions in the community).
