Description

Research is overwhelming for many of us. We are unsure of how to begin, where to go for information and what qualifies as a 'good' source. We may not fully understand the different types of research or how to go about formulating a research question, never mind designing a research study. This course will give you the basics in terminology and an overview of concepts and theories behind the subject of research.

As a massage therapist, it is vital that we keep up to date with recent studies regarding the effects of massage or any other topic that affects our ability to assist clients. Unfortunately, research and how to search for it or how to assess and question the results of research studies is not consistently taught in massage school.

Through this course you will:

  • review the history of research.
  • discover the ethical considerations of research - working with human subjects and HIPAA issues.
  • differentiate types of research - compare and contrast qualitative vs. quantitative research.
  • examine the issues of research including researcher bias, questions of interpretation, and informed consent.
  • learn the steps in the research process:
    • formulating a research question.
    • performing a literature review: scholarly vs. popular periodicals.
    • choosing methodologies for research.
    • presenting findings: getting published and peer review.
  • evaluate research studies based on evidence presented.
  • recognize resources for research and locate primary sources.
