Students will demonstrate understanding of scientific inquiry, including research design, methodologies, ethical issues, informed consent, minimizing bias, and statistical analyses. To measure outcomes of programs and therapeutic interventions, students will select the most appropriate methods and systematically assess context’ influence on outcomes. This course will also delineate the processes of continuous quality improvement and associated metrics.
