Evidence-based Healthcare - PHTY804

This unit introduces students to the principles underpinning and practice of evidence-based health care, whereby research evidence is integrated with clinical expertise and patients’ values. Specifically, students will learn how to formulate clinical questions about diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, and locate and critically appraise relevant high-quality evidence to answer those questions. This unit provides an evidence-based framework for concurrent and future units of study and is embedded in the curriculum to enhance life-long learning skills. By integration with a clinical component, students will develop foundational skills in how to implement evidence-based health care in clinical practice.
