Research is necessary to produce knowledge that allows us to reduce the impact of health problems, including better diagnosing and treating conditions.
Clinical research is the unavoidable filter where we test the hypotheses from basic research, technological innovation or health care practice itself. But for that applied-research activity to be sufficiently reliable and useful, we need to master essential concepts and methodologies. Making this possible is the goal of this course.
This course explains the most important concepts related to design, electronic search, critical appraisal and statistical analysis, required to answer therapeutic, prognostic, aetiologic and diagnostic clinical questions.
The course is structured in 21 topics grouped by modules according to their design or the type of clinical question they address.
The course is estimated to take around 35 hours to complete, including the recommended readings.
Each topic begins with a video of the module’s lecturer and is followed by the slides explained in the video, and it has a brief self-assessment.
