Educational Content

for CE/CME Credit

Our educational content is ideal for two different audiences. The first audience that our educational content is geared towards is trainees who have little prior experience doing a research project, and need to be guided through the process. The current web-based course “How to do a Research Project” will teach you everything you need to know about conducting research. The second audience that we develop content for is individuals already in practice who are interested in research and need CE/CME credit. These practitioners are individuals who are seeking to maintain, develop, or increase their knowledge, skills and performance in their practice. “How to do a Research Project” provides two hours of CE/CME credit (after passing the exam with 75% or higher) and the cost of $35.00.
