Environmental Medicine Research Study
Effect of an Integrative Medicine Course on Knowledge Base and Practice Patterns (Environmental Medicine)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of a brief, online course in improving health care provider knowledge, attitudes and skills and ability to apply clinical skills in routine patient care.
We expect approximately 50 people will take part in this study. If you decide to participate, you will be asked to:
- Read and acknowledge a disclosure notification
- Fill out a questionnaire before you take the course
- Take an online course
- Fill out a questionnaire right after you finish the course
- Fill out a questionnaire 30 days after you complete the course
We estimate that it will take approximately 30 minutes to complete all questionnaires, 10 minutes each. There is no cost to you except for your time.
