Innovation and Technology Transfer


The goal of this assessment is to demonstrate your understanding of research principles and methods. The workbook consists of 2 parts Part A, the Research Presentations and Part B, the research critique.

Workbook Part A: Research Presentations

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement of all registered health practitioners (AHPRA 2014). The CPD requirements of each National Board are detailed in the Registration Standards for each profession, these detail the number of credits/points/hours practitioners must spend each year on learning activities For example, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) states “CPD is the means by which members of the professions maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities needed throughout their professional lives” (NMBA, 2016, p 1). An example of a CPD activity is attending “conferences, forums, seminars and symposia” (NMBA, 2016, p 2)

In NUR131 you are required to view 8 research presentations as an illustrative example of a CPD activity. In Part A of the workbook you are required complete a workbook entry for each of the 8 Research Presentations. The research presentations for this activity are located in the Research Presentations folder in the course BlackBoard. Each presentation entry should be approximately 100 words and must address the following criteria:
• Date you listened to the presentation
• Name of the presenter
• Title of the presentation
• Description of topics covered during research presentation
• Reflection on presentation and its application to your future practice

Workbook Part B: Research Critique

Part B of the workbook requires you to critically appraise a research article. The workbook template (included on BlackBoard) includes the question areas that MUST be answered for this assessment task. You are required to analyse and critique the journal article. Simple yes/no answers are not adequate responses. Do not use quotations as this demonstrates that you can find information but does not demonstrate that you understand a concept. Your course textbook provides detailed instruction on how to undertake a critique of a journal article.
You are required to retrieve the following assessment article using the USC library databases:

Article: Cooke M, Ullman AJ, Ray-Barruel G, Wallis M, Corley A & Rickard CM 2018, ‘Not “just” an intravenous line: Consumer perspectives on peripheral intravenous cannulation (PIVC).
