Research Methods for Health Professionals: An Introductory Course
Tuesday, November 13 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Macht Auditorium, Cambridge Hospital campus, 1493 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA.
Course Directors – Heather Gray, PhD & Sarah Nelson, PhD
The Division on Addiction offers a special one-day course that will provide an introduction to research methods for health professionals. The course faculty specialize in research on addiction and will present examples and case studies from this standpoint, but lessons learned will be relevant across health care fields. This course will provide an understanding of research methodology necessary for participants wishing to supplement their clinical activities with research. It will also give students the tools to become critical consumers of research, a first step toward integrating evidence-based medicine into practice. Topics will include sample selection, survey research and design, reliability and validity, self report issues, experimental and quasi-experimental designs, correlation and causation, longitudinal design, statistical inference, human subject issues, preparing manuscripts, and grant funding.
