The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) is launching the fourth Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) after thousands signed up to learn about research since the MOOC first began in November 2015. The 'Improving Healthcare Through Clinical Research' MOOC is open for registration and will start on 22 May.
The NIHR CRN teamed up with the University of Leeds and FutureLearn in November 2015 to develop the MOOC, which to date has seen over 18 thousand registrations from people wanting to learn more about how research can improve healthcare, from all over the world.
The MOOC is a four week online course and is free of charge. Over four weeks the course includes;
- Learning about the roles of different members of a research team
- Hearing from people who have taken part in clinical research studies
- The ethical and scientific principles that underpin the research process
- Getting a better understanding of the challenges of conducting clinical research and the benefits to modern healthcare
You can sign up now to register for the MOOC or go to the NIHR MOOC pages for further information.
