During 2019 REDISSEC has committed itself to promoting the training of its researchers by offering different courses organised wholly or partly by some of the groups and institutions that form part of the Network. Thus, three courses will be offered this year:
During the academic years 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 REDISSEC has given the Diploma of Expert in Research in Health Services and Chronic Diseases, organized by the University of Alcalá de Henares, of 20 ECTS credits. In this course, qualitative and quantitative research methods have been used, methods in health economics, as well as a wide range of evaluation techniques. The main contents of the expert course are organized around 4 main subjects: 1) Introduction to health services research and chronic conditions; 2) Study designs and statistics in the investigation of chronic conditions; 3) Methods in health services research and chronic conditions; and 4) End of course work. All the groups in the network participated in the course as teachers according to their greatest experience in each part of the course, with the collaboration of around 40 researchers from REDISSEC. From now on, the Expert Course will be organized every two years, in order to adjust its frequency to the current availability of new young researchers.
