The goal of the unit is facilitate postgraduate students in their writing of their DPsych research proposal by helping them to 1) finalise their research thesis question, which they developed into a proposal for submission at the end of the semester; 2) develop an understanding and appreciation of ethics in research, focussing on research of clinical issues or in clinical populations, which they developed into a human research committee ethics application for their research study, for submission by the end of semester. The unit also aimed to assist students in refining the analysis strategy for their research thesis, and in conducting a risk assessment and developing strategies for managing risk, both in general in research and specific to their thesis study.
