Health research has high value to society. It can provide important information about disease trends and risk factors, outcomes of treatment, care or public health interventions, functional abilities, patterns of care, and healthcare costs and use.
The different approaches to research provide complementary insights. Different approaches to health research have led to significant discoveries, the development of new therapies, and a remarkable improvement in healthcare and public health.
The majority of health professionals engaged in patient care will be consumers of research; implementing evidence-based practice is crucial to provide optimal care. For others, the thought of being on the other side and participating in research is exciting.
This course is designed to help health professionals develop research skills to enable them to participate in research teams in the healthcare system.
This course contains three modules:
- Module A: An introduction to research methods
- Module B: Grant writing and analysing research data
- Module C: How to write a paper
Upon purchase of the course, you will have four weeks of online access to complete the three modules. The four week period begins from the time of purchase and you can return to the course at any time within the period you are subscribed.
