Preliminary findings – evaluation of a pilot cohort studying Understanding Parkinson’s
Understanding Parkinson’s is a free openly licensed online course developed by OEPS in partnership with Parkinson’s UK. The course is aimed at front line health and social care staff, many of whom will be working in the residential care sector. We are currently analysing data from an evaluation of the experience of a pilot group based in the Western Isles and distributed across a number of workplaces and community settings.
In an extended discussion of some of the preliminary findings of the evaluation, Ronald Macintyre from the OEPS team notes how combining qualitative evidence from personal experience with analytic data provides for a richer picture of the learner journey and sheds light on issues which are not accessible through analytics alone.
