Series 1 EHDEN Academy Courses for Non-Experts Complete


With module 3 now posted, EHDEN (European Health Data & Evidence Network), together with the European Patients’ Forum, has completed its initial series of easy-to-understand, animated courses for non-experts as part of the EHDEN Academy course offering.

These three introductory courses are designed to familiarise non-experts with the basics of health data in terms of how it’s created, shared, analysed, and protected.

  • Module 1 looks at real-life examples to illustrate key concepts such as what are real world data and real world evidence.
  • Module 2 sheds light on how data is managed across a large, federated network, at scale.
  • Module 3 focuses on the benefits, possible risks, and protections around health data.

Each course builds on the foundations established in the previous module.

Next up, EHDEN and the European Patients’ Forum will collaborate with H2O, a sister Innovative Medicines Initiative project, on another non-expert course centred around Patient Reported Outcomes, what they are, how they are used, and their importance.

You can access each of the three already published modules, as well as many other free, expert training courses supporting tools, skills and methods for observational research by registering at the EHDEN Academy.
