This generic programme is relevant to all healthcare professionals involved in research and audit. It introduces the learner to a variety of topics pertinent to clinical research and audit performed by the NHS and its academic partners. It is a joint project led by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and developed by the Royal College of Anaesthetists, in collaboration with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare.
The educational aim of the project is to enable users to interpret the validity and reliability of healthcare data (e.g. clinical trials, reviews, audits) and respond appropriately with respect to their clinical practice. In addition, it provides the first steps for those contemplating a research or audit project. Throughout the module, users requiring more advanced and specialised information are directed towards additional resources available through e-LfH and other sources such as NHS Evidence
