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 synchronous live teaching sessions and asynchronous recordings. Attending the live sessions is strongly encouraged as it 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 with support for expert facilitators and using specialist software in a supported environment. Our recorded sessions enable you to personalise your experience and learn at your own pace. Engaging with the blend of live sessions and recordings within each teaching week allows you to synthesise your learning as you go to get the most from this module.
The module will take place during the following weeks (exact timetable to be confirmed):
- Teaching & guided learning: 04/11/22-09/02/23
- Self-directed learning: 04/11/22-15/02/23
