In this five-week online Futurelab course, you are introduced to the question-based method of clinical development. This approach, which is based on the so-called Real Options Theory, facilitates the rational and efficient design of a pathway for developing novel medical interventions. Although this approach is used only rarely in the biomedical sector, it is used commonly in many other industries. During this course, you will learn how to apply this approach using the Futurelab tool. You will also learn to formulate key questions to be answered during the development process and to estimate both the associated costs and the likelihood of answering these key questions. It is important to note that each course must be completed before the next course can be taken. Moreover, although course participants are expected to pursue all three courses in the program, it is possible to take this online course as a stand-alone (i.e., terminal) course.
