Accreditation Check:
For most clinicians, the concept of continually keeping up with literature and integrating the best and most appropriate research findings into practice can be challenging. There are time constraints, problems with access to literature, and the intimidating language present in many research articles.

In a non-nonsense manner, this course will focus on key application of these concepts at the clinical specialist level.
