Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit focuses on the techniques and rigour involved in developing a research proposal and preparing an associated research ethics application. Students will be guided to develop a scholarly, coherent, and cogent research proposal, building on the question development, literature searching and critical appraisal skills developed in HLSC621 with tangible, specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound objectives. It also focuses on research ethics examining the national code and ACU processes. The research proposal will form the basis for the human research ethics committee application as well as a peer review process in the Faculty of Health Sciences.
