Key Concepts Covered
The following key concepts underpin all aspects of the Australian Health Workforce Strategy undertaken in this course:
Nursing Research Process
Nursing Research Process It explains how nurses collect data from patients/family/caregivers that can help them determine what changes need to occur within health care settings so patients/families/caregivers may receive high quality care . it also explains how nursing research can lead researchers towards evidence-based practice through utilising systematic approaches . Systematic approach involves collecting data from studies that have been systematically conducted across multiple studies, which therefore leads towards robust findings that can be replicated over time across various contexts . Nursing Research Process The term ‘systematic review’ has come into common usage recently as an umbrella term describing search strategies utilised through systematic reviews  . Systematic review is commonly referred as ‘search strategy’ describing a series strategies which guide searchers toward robust findings  . One example is Cochrane Review which describes searching strategy conducted through six steps involving selecting search terms, looking up references mentioned in studies reviewed previously + taking references into consideration  .
