Mastering scientific thinking and working

In this module you will learn the intricacies of scientific thinking and working. Key aspects such as objectivity, use of reliable sources, gaining a comprehensive overview of the state of research, and mastering correct formulation and citation are central. The module will provide you with basic skills and guidance on how to use research literature correctly and successfully throughout your study. 
This three day course is held in English.

Practical application of evidence-based practices in healthcare

Healthcare that meets quality standards and is well organised requires research-based knowledge. In order to make valid statements about the necessity and effectiveness of various activities (diagnostics, therapy, intervention), health professionals at university level rely on scientifically collected data. In this context, the critical examination of scientifically generated knowledge is of central importance. The module enables students to independently research scientific literature and to analyse the results according to scientific quality criteria. The module is thus a central foundation of the module. The focus is on the application and transfer of the results to your own professional practice.
