Nine Palmer faculty members traveled to McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario Canada to attend the 2011 How to Teach Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Workshop on June 5-10, 2011. The five Palmer Davenport faculty who participated were Drs. Ron Boesch, John Stites, Casey Crisp, Michelle Barber and Michael Tunning. Drs. Tammi Clark, Makani Lew, Theresa Whitney and Robert Cooperstein attended from Palmer West Campus. This one-week intense workshop developed for clinicians, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors and other healthcare professionals consists of small and large group sessions, individual study time and teaching opportunities to further strengthen participants’ EBCP skills and strategies for teaching EBCP. The following faculty commented on their experience:
Michael Tunning, D.C., A.T.C. – Davenport Campus
We had an intense week learning, teaching, and improving our understanding of EBCP. It was a fantastic experience and ignited ideas in each of us to improve how we educate our students.
Theresa Whitney, D.C. – West Campus
It was an intense learning experience! Beyond becoming more aware of EBCP literature use and critical analysis, and its application on our campus and in our classrooms, it has inspired new teaching strategies for my every day use.
