Evidence: Recognising the good, the bad and the ugly



Full course description

This course is designed to give you a taste of evidence-based practice. We will explore different sources of evidence and think about how we appraise evidence. This will help you understand the quality of new evidence you come across.
The course is online and self-paced; you can start at any time and it will take you approximately 3 hours to complete. You will be encouraged to use self-reflection to help you think about the ideas discussed and take part in the quizzes to test your own understanding of the subject material. At the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to take a final quiz. If you score over 80% in the quiz, you will get a certificate of completion for the course.
All professionals need to be able to confidently and competently access, appraise and apply different types of evidence to inform the decision making process. This short open access course will provide an introduction to the practical skills and theoretical understanding to help you do this.
