iCAHE PD courses on EBP and Research Methodology

Now available online

IN 2018, iCAHE offered a series of 45-60 minute Professional Development courses on Evidence Based Practice and Research Methodology. The courses were well received as they were conducted online, and recordings were available to those who couldn’t make the live sessions. Due to requests of continued access, we are making the PD courses accessible via our website. The PD courses are now available as videos, so they can be accessed by more people and whenever needed.
