Students will be challenged to integrate critical analysis of multiple types of available evidence and knowledge of research design to analyse problems affecting their practice as a nurse practitioner. They will also be challenged to explore opportunities to contribute to evidence to inform clinical decision making by the nurse practitioner to promote best possible health care outcomes for the patient/client, as well as outcomes for the clinician and the service. It is expected that students will have the capacity to identify variances in their own clinical practice for investigation and strategies to contribute to new knowledge and improved health care delivery through collaboration in research and research ethics. The application of research and the role of nurse practitioner is supported by reflective practice encompassing critical analysis, interpretation, evaluation and synthesis.
