Evidence-based decision-making is vital if we are to make the best use of scarce healthcare resources. And data is one of the key sources of that evidence. But there are many obstacles that prevent managers and clinicians from using data to form judgements and put together action plans. Kurtosis tries to overcome these obstacles with a suite of training courses that show better ways of analysing, presenting and evaluating data.

Kurtosis training courses are informal, hands-on and participative. We use real-life examples from health and social care and we draw on many years' experience of working in and with the NHS.
