Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Introduction and background notes (vocational context)
Consider yourself as a final year senior health and social care student. Your academic supervisor has instructed you to undertake a 4-part research project related to a specific issue of health and social care practice in your chosen health and social care setting. You are required to fulfil four tasks in a research report format and also make a brief presentation. The assignment requires you to identify a specific problem or issue in health and social care such as: poor quality care in residential homes and its impact on service users; safeguarding service users in health and social care, homelessness and its impact on health and social care; services for those recovering from disability; legislation and its impact on service users; social policy changes for elderly people in residential care, public perception of FGM and the stigma behind the way that these are dealt with; barriers in health and social care and ways forward for inter-professional collaboration; government strategies in health promotion; asylum seekers and its impact on health and social care. The Unit addresses the elements that make up formal research including the proposal, literature review, a variety of research methodologies, action planning, ethical consideration, carrying out the research itself and presenting the findings.
To successfully complete the unit, you will be required to identify a specific problem or issue related to your chosen health and social care topic and write a Research Proposal outlining the issues as a problem statement leading to identifying the Research Objectives (and/or hypotheses, if any) necessary to address your research question. Your research proposal will need to include review of relevant literature that supports and justifies your research objectives. The aim of the Research Project is to plan, collect and analyse relevant data related to the problem identified using appropriate sources (primary and secondary) before presenting the findings in a research report and brief presentation. Learners should seek approval from their tutors before starting their research project
