Course Summary

This MHealth Res focuses on the production of a substantial piece of work in a chosen specialist area of interest which is negotiated upon entry to the course. The programme will equip you with extensive knowledge and understanding of the research process, research methods and methodologies. You will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate a deep and advanced knowledge of your specialist topic of study and evidence-based practice while engaging in independent research practice to a high standard. This will ultimately translate into you designing, delivering and evaluating a research project from inception to successful completion, with the support and guidance of experts in healthcare practice.

The taught research modules are assessed by critiquing a health research paper (written and oral presentation) and by the development of a research proposal. This proposal can then feed into the dissertation which is assessed through completion of a 25,000-word thesis and a viva voce examination. The programme is delivered by a core team with specialist expertise in clinical research methods, research project development and the philosophy and ethics of clinical research. The programme has been developed in response to drivers that require professionals in health and social care to develop an evidence-based approach to practice. An MHealth Res qualification will significantly enhance your CV and improve your future employment prospects while also equipping you with an array of research skills to help develop your professional practice. The skills and experience acquired through the programme also provide essential preparation for progressing onto higher research qualifications, such as MPhil and PhD.
