Sharing a sneak peek of a course called '6 steps to becoming a research literate health professional' that I'm developing for Nutritional Therapists. Exciting times ahead 🤗
As a Nutritional Therapist I use scientific research and evidence to promote the health & wellbeing of my clients. The better quality research I use to inform my nutritional strategies the more likely my strategies will work and my clients will get better 💚
It's no secret, however, that all scientific research is flawed! It's a real headache knowing, when I pick up a clinical trail, if I can trust the results completely (feel confident that I can use it in clinic with my clients), accept the findings with caution, or whether it simply belongs in the bin 🧐
To sift the 'good' from the 'bad' I've developed skills for examining research and judging its trustworthiness. For several years I also taught research literacy skills to students of Nutritional Therapy so they too will use research appropriately & effectively for better clinical outcomes 👩🎓 The course I'm developing now is aimed at Nutritional Therapy professionals. I will be telling you the exact steps you need to take to become a research literate health professional, and benefit from more effective clinical outcomes (& happier clients) as a result👍
If you are a Nutritional Therapist, or other health professional, I'd love to hear your views & experience of working with research: What is getting in the way of you examining research and using it in clinical practice?
Happy Friday all !💚🌏💙
