This two day course will introduce participants to the theories, concepts and practice of developing and using surveys in clinical research and practice. Participants will gain practical skills on how to write good survey questions, use Qualtrics as a platform for developing surveys, undertake analysis of survey data, and understand the pitfalls of surveys and questionnaires. This course will also include a series of case studies on how surveys have been implemented into clinical practice, and the key learnings we can take from our experiences.

Students may register for one or both days.

Topics on Day 1 include:
Using surveys
Designing and writing good survey questions
Ethical considerations when collecting data using surveys
Recruitment and data collection
Data entry and data coding

Topics on Day 2 include:
Implementing surveys into practice

The course will be useful for people who are new to survey design, as well as those who would like to improve their skills and knowledge. It will also benefit people who are planning to design a survey in the future (e.g. PhD students, clinicians, teaching academics), and those who plan to use previously developed surveys for research.
