Acupuncture Practitioner Research Education Enhancement

Oregon College of Oriental Medicine

(provided by applicant) This research education enhancement project will improve research literacy and research participation skills of acupuncture practitioners by developing and implementing a tiered curriculum for master's students, doctoral students and faculty at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). The resulting curriculum will also be adapted for a broader national audience. The project builds on current and recently completed collaborative efforts between OCOM and Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in the domains of both education (OHSU's R25 CAM Curriculum grant) and research (OHSU's P50 CAM Center grant). Created content and learning approaches will also be formatted as continuing education seminars to offer evidence based research literacy training to community based acupuncture practitioners. Sustainability will be further addressed by beginning to develop grant content as web-based distance learning modules
