This module enables you to focus upon a significant piece of investigative enquiry from conceptualisation through to completion. Within this module, ?research? is interpreted as including empirical research involving qualitative and/or quantitative methods, service evaluation, clinical audit, systematic review or a negotiated investigative enquiry unique to your own field of specialism, for example historical/archival research. The subject chosen will reflect (and be directly relevant to) an identifiable area of the programmes curriculum content and will be negotiated and agreed with the course team.
