Massive Open Online Courses

'Improving Healthcare Through Clinical Research'

The ‘Improving Healthcare through Clinical Research’ Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is a four week online course that is available free of charge to anyone wanting to understand more about clinical research. 

'What Is Health Research?'

Have you ever wondered how doctors and nurses know what treatment or care to give?

It’s only through health research that healthcare professionals find new and better ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating disease. Today’s research is tomorrow’s treatment.

On this course, you will learn how health research happens, why it matters and what to expect if you take part. You will also hear stories from people who have taken part in research; why they volunteered and the difference it made. Sign up here.
