Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsSo, let’s have a look at what we’ve covered so far. All of this has been the basis for growing your full research project. We started with the background philosophy and the underlying assumptions about what we think about the world as a way of determining which way we do the research. We’ve also covered the ways that historically, research has been conducted in totally unethical ways. It’s important that we apply the ethical standards from our practice as healthcare professionals to the research that we do to advance that practice.

Remember that getting the groundwork done right is important for growing your question into a full project. In the coming weeks, we’ll look at different ways to answer your research question in order to get a meaningful answer that can help you to improve your practice within healthcare. We’ll cover in detail quantitative and qualitative methods and mixed methodologies as well as looking at how to analyse it and use the data you’ve produced to get meaningful answers.

Concluding the course

This course has formed a basis for growing your own full research project.

From the background philosophy and underlying assumptions we can determine which way we do research.

It has also emphasised the need for ethical standards in research as well as practice by looking at some historic examples of unethical research.

In the next course we will move on to how we actually conduct research: the design and methods of taking a question and developing it into a project that will answer that question and improve practice.

Getting the groundwork done is essential to answer a question in order to get meaningful answers that will improve practice.

We will look in detail at quantitative and qualitative methods as well as mixed methodologies in addition to how to analysis and use the data you produce.
