Project & Scholarship 1 builds on the skills developed in evidence-based practice for osteopathy units, through the production of a written Critically Appraised Topic (CAT) on a clinically relevant topic of their choice. This resource will be peer reviewed, with the students further applying their EBP skills to critically appraise the work of other students and build their research translation skills. To further develop their health promotion and communication skills, students will produce the output from this CAT in various audience appropriate formats.
Students will further develop the necessary skills to perform evidence-based practice, while gaining a deeper understanding of the peer review process and contributing to a valuable evidence-based resource within the osteopathy discipline.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
The first assessment task provides students the opportunity to explore a clinically relevant topic area of their choice, conduct a brief literature review and produce a written piece of scholarly work. The following assessment tasks build upon that work and require the students to think about the audience and how they would disseminate that information to peers (3MT), clinicians and patients (infographic or brochure).
Required readings will be made available on VU Collaborate.
