ScHARR is running two free massive online open courses (MOOC):
Measuring and Valuing Health - from 12th February 2018
Health Technology Assessment - from 5th March 2018
If you missed them last time, come and join us. We have lots of great interactive learning and the chance to debate some of the key issues with experts in the field.
These free online courses will introduce you to health outcomes and explain how they can be measured and valued, in order to support decision-making. They also cover broader aspects of health technology assessment including how evidence is identified and synthesized in order to address questions of what to fund.
The time commitment is approximately 3 hours per week. The content is divided into small bite-sized pieces that can be done at your leisure to fit around other commitments.
