Training Courses and Capacity Development Opportunities

PenCLAHRC is pleased to be able to offer a range of training opportunities for healthcare professionals across the South West.

Our Making Sense of Evidence workshops will teach you how to find and use research evidence to help inform clinical decision-making. We offer both full-day courses or bespoke courses that can be tailored to suit your needs and availability.

PenCHORD, our operational research team, provide a range of training modules to help you understand modelling techniques and concepts, as well as providing hands-on, practical skills in the basics of Excel-based models.

PenCHORD are also running our Health Service Modelling Associates programme. This scheme, working directly with staff from NHS organisations across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset, aims to support the increased use of operational research in health service development and decision making.

Our Evidence Synthesis Team run a series of ongoing systematic review clinics. These one-to-one clinics are for academics or NHS professionals who needs to know where to start on the systematic review process or how to go about designing a search strategy.

Some of the other training we offer includes:

  • Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Advice Clinics;
  • Qualitative Research Skills Clinics;
  • Health Statistic Clinics (for University staff).
