UNIT LEARNING OUTCOMES

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to have attained or demonstrated:


  1. a critical awareness of the necessity for the development and implementation of evidence based emergency practice;

  2. a systematic understanding of the process of obtaining and synthesising best evidence for practice;

  3. the skills required to formulate answerable questions;

  4. the skills required to critically appraise evidence surrounding practice.
14
CURRICULUM OUTLINE

This unit covers the basics of evidence-based emergency practice. Starting with the formulation of answerable questions and the management and exploitation of databases, it then covers the use of appraisal checklists and the fundamentals of statistical analysis. Evidence synthesis is covered, as is the formulation and implementation of guidelines.
15
LEARNING & TEACHING ACTIVITIES

This is an online supported unit (blended learning). Core competencies will be taught in small groups in a face to face environment. The BestBETs process is taught using a scaffolding framework through which the learners will develop and work toward their assessments. Group learning and tutor support will add to the learning through the online discussion of in-course assignments. A combination of directed cases, reflective tasks and group exercises will be used to achieve this.
16
ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES

Students must either submit a 4,500 word project proposal (100%) or two BestBETs with extended methodology (50% each).
17
