Synopsis

This is the second unit in the formal requirement for the completion of either a project or minor thesis, as part of a Masters degree in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. . Students will be required to complete an ethics application and to finalise specific issues surrounding their choice of research design, data collection methods and participant recruitment procedures. Students will work closely with a research supervisor to decide upon an appropriate site and source of data and to secure appropriate approvals from any relevant organisation (e.g., multiple ethics applications may be required). Satisfactory progress in relation to the research is a prerequisite for enrolment in the next unit in the research thesis sequence.

Objectives

On completion of this unit students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate their awareness of ethical and privacy issues as they apply to their research proposal;
  2. Work collaboratively with a research supervisor to achieve research milestones (e.g., submission of ethics proposal);
  3. Write to an appropriate academic standard by incorporating existing research findings and supervisor feedback;
  4. Respond appropriately to the realities of research project issues including identification of a research site (or sites) and recruitment of participants.

Assessment
