Evaluating treatment interventions or improvements in patient care and any related financial implications is becoming increasingly important in the healthcare field. For many healthcare professionals tasked with this evaluation, it's the first time they have been exposed to clinical audit and research methods. This course covers the principles of clinical audit, and will help you build the skills needed to successfully undertake research and audit in a clinical setting. Bringing together experts from the University of Dundee, Dundee Teaching Hospitals Trust, and industry, course leaders provide clinical and statistical expertise in audit of process, project planning, data processing and trial control mechanisms. This has allowed us to develop a course specifically tailored to teach the skills needed by the healthcare profession to successfully undertake research and audit. You'll begin by exploring the need for research and audit in a clinical setting, then learn more about the implications of research involving human subjects. You'll then develop your information gathering and review skills, and learn how to draw conclusions from statistics and how to report on or present these. Other areas of study involve funding, ethical issues and how to successfully implement clinical audit.
