CAM Research Education Partnership Project
The objective of the CAM Practitioner Research Education Project Grant Partnership Competitive Renewal Project is to design and deliver an innovative and sustainable educational plan that will help promote NCCIH's mission of facilitating the application of evidence informed practice (EIP) by CAM practitioners, and training CAM research scientists. The project demonstrates the investigators' ability to successfully lead, administer, and evaluate a comprehensive research education program. There is tremendous institutional support which encourages long-term sustainability beyond the funding period. Outcomes include novel online learning technologies; new required EIP coursework for students; a multi-level EIP faculty development program; an innovative fellowship to train EIP teachers and CAM researchers; and a robust evaluation program demonstrating consistent and positive changes in EIP skills and behaviors.
