The Council of Deans of Health highlights how universities are developing research skills in pre-registration healthcare students in order to ensure they are able to deliver safe, effective and person-centred practice.
The report, Becoming research confident, is based on a survey of UK universities. It demonstrates how modules on research methods and evidence-informed practice, research-informed teaching, dissertations and interdisciplinary research projects are among the approaches being used to expose students to research. Other examples include universities working closely with healthcare providers to create research placements and projects in practice to apply their research skills.
CAHPR contributed to the report by providing background materials.
