Evidence Informed Practice: Applying Research in Complementary and Integrative Health

The topics included in this course use the evidence informed practice (EIP) model to explore how research evidence can be combined with experience, values and preferences to make well informed health related decisions in complementary and integrative health. Emphasis is placed on providing user-friendly ways to navigate the research literature and efficiently identify relevant and valid research information for healthcare providers.

The modules were developed as part of a larger project funded by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH, R25AT003582).
