Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit is the capstone of the Allied Health 2 year embedded Honours program. Honours programs provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to learn how to conduct research, to develop more advanced professional knowledge and skills, and to enter higher degrees by research at Masters and PhD levels. Research skills are critical for the development of evidence based practice and policy that ensures quality care of individuals, families and communities requiring allied health and social services.


This unit focuses on completion of the research project and requires interpretation and dissemination of the findings with consideration of implications for practice. The overall aim of this unit is to build on the work students have undertaken in the previous Honours units including appraisal of the literature, design and implementation of a research project. Students are supported to continue their analysis and interpretation, then to discuss and disseminate the findings.  To complete the thesis, students are expected to write a research study report in the form of a journal manuscript. Students will also present their research outcomes at a student conference at the end of the semester. During this semester, students work with their supervisors to complete their projects. In summary, this unit aims to support students to complete data analysis and a final research report.
