Last year Schneider et al (1) published a paper on US chiropractors’ attitudes, skills and use of evidence informed practice. This paper is part of a study that used an online educational program to teach DCs evidence informed practice. This education program was designed by researchers at Northwestern Health Sciences University as part of a grant from the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health at the National Institutes of Health. The online educational program is now available to everyone free of charge. FICS encourages its member chiropractors to avail themselves of this very valuable free resource. It is called Foundations Of Evidence Informed Practice and can be found here
