- CRN MOOC: Improving Healthcare through Clinical Research
7 Nov 2016 -
The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) has teamed up with the University of Leeds and FutureLearn to develop a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) available free of charge to anyone wanting to understand more about clinical research.
The course is entitled “Improving Healthcare through Clinical Research’ and was first launched across the NIHR CRN in November 2015. The course attracted over 8,000 people who all signed up to undertake the course to learn more about the importance of research from across the world, and within this number included NIHR staff.
The course is online and runs over a four week period. Learners can choose how and when to use the MOOC, which makes it perfect for learning alongside your work commitments.
