The quality of clinical care depends on a foundation of knowledge called as evidence or experience that is interpreted in the appropriate context and continuously evaluated for clinical care to progress in the right directions. Every healthcare practitioner generates and evaluates knowledge when they interact with the recipients of care in diverse settings. Medical knowledge can be updated only through regular evaluation of these individual findings in a systematic, replicable, transparent process often called as research.
The process of research that is hidden behind several technical and confusing jargon is often intimidating and demotivating to a busy practitioner, either in clinical practice, a resident, or an undergraduate healthcare student. In this course, we aim to demystify the process of research integrating it with the routine clinical care that healthcare practitioners provide in diverse settings.
