Module overview

Understanding research, the appropriate use of qualitative and quantitative methods and how to interpret results is fundamental to being able to critique an evidence base. The Clinical Research Skills module teaches you how to apply qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches when carrying out research or evaluating a service and to understand them when considering the results reported by others.

Our online module is delivered using a blend of live teaching and pre-recorded sessions. You are expected to attend all live sessions which allows you to engage with our expert teachers and your fellow students and benefit from rich discussions. Practical workshops in our live sessions will allow you to work through data analysis techniques and use specialist software in a supported environment. Our recorded sessions allow you to learn at your convenience within each teaching week. Engaging with our blended learning each teaching week allows you to build on and synthesise your learning as you go.

This module is taught once a year and typically involves approximately 10 hours of student engagement per week. The module will take place during the following weeks:

  • Teaching & guided learning: 01/11/24-13/02/25
  • Self-directed learning: 01/11/24-27/02/25
