Cardiff University is running a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on the FutureLearn platform from Monday 7 September. It’s called The Informed Health Consumer: Making Sense of Evidence. [*see note below]
This free course is aimed at a lay audience and will be useful for people who want to find out more about a medical condition or those considering studying a health-related subject at university. It will also interest those who want to improve their knowledge of a health-related issue.
Over four weeks, the course will:
· Look at the factors that affect the reliability of evidence;
· Provide practical help on how to find the best evidence;
· Improve understanding of the terminology of health research;
· Provide some simple tools to help judge whether it’s reliable.
