Course Overview
NDs and other integrative medicine (IM) providers often need to utilize interventions with a limited research base which may be formally evaluated by third parties. For this reason, it is important that NDs and other IM providers have their own stellar critical evaluation of the literature skills. It is important for NDs to understand where to find trusted resources and how to assess bias, including identifying industry sponsorship and blinding issues. In addition, it is extremely important to understand clinical versus statistical significant and assess these accordingly. At the end of the webinar, participants will better understand how to apply research findings to their patients.

Attend this presentation to confidently:

1. Understand the original definition of evidence-based medicine
2. Appreciate the change in attitudes towards EBM that is occurring within the naturopathic profession
3. Identify point-of-care resources for high quality evidence
4. Discover risk of bias in randomized controlled trials as it relates to unmasking and industry sponsorship
5. Define minimal clinically important differences and explain their importance
6. Apply research findings to your patient population
