Our Focus Areas
Action research is used for improving practice. It involves action, evaluation, and critical reflection and based on the evidence gathered, changes in practice are then implemented.
A pragmatic study focuses on actual real-world situation. The process of undertaking a pragmatic study is first to identify a problem and view it within its broadest context.
Qualitative research involves collecting and analyzing non-numerical data (e.g., text, video, or audio) to understand concepts, opinions, or experiences.
Quantitative research collecting and analyzing numerical data. It finds patterns and averages, make predictions, test causal relationships, and generalize results.
Mixed methods research collect and analyse both quantitative and qualitative data within the same study mostly used in nursing and healthcare.
Community based participatory research & integrated knowledge translation create partnerships between researchers and the people (“knowledge users”)
Practice Based Research
Practice-based Research is an original investigation undertaken in order to gain new knowledge partly by means of practice and the outcomes of that practice.
Community-Led Research (CLR) requires processes that support community participation, community prioritising, community decision-making and community action.
