Epidemiology, biostatistics and scientific methods in Veterinary Nursing

Focusing on basic epidemiology and biostatistics, lectures include different types of study design and the application of basic statistical methods, including strengths and limitations for biological questions and interpretation of data. During the course, the students perform a minor, supervised project in the form of a literature study, which includes identifying a scientific question within veterinary nursing, followed by a literature search, analysis of chosen scientific articles, a written report and an oral presentation focused on critical thinking. During the project, great emphasis is placed on the students’ ability to oppose and discuss their own work and the work of others. The course also includes practical calculation exercises and mandatory literature seminars.
