Introduction to the course

Data is everywhere and changing the world. We don’t see it but it is being used to improve outcomes and make people’s everyday lives better, and especially in the health and care sector.

But using data is often seen as a reserve of the selected few with specialist skills. However this is not, and should not, be the case.

This course will help you understand the value of data, how to use it, and what you can do with the findings from influencing policies to budgetary decisions.
