Course DescriptionThis course builds basic skills in statistics and research methodology in the health field. To ensure the quality, appropriateness and cost-effectiveness of the services they provide, managers must make decisions based on the best available evidence. Even if they do not themselves engage in research activities, they should understand the research process, the assumptions which underlie different research strategies, and be able to critically assess research findings as the basis for decision-making. The course discusses the assumptions of clinical and social research models and the nature and use of health care statistical data.
