My Learning

We all know that research evidence can be important in highlighting how effective a treatment or therapy is or in making us aware of the differences between groups and care settings. But it can be more difficult to understand how to use this evidence in your clinical practice. The My Learning modules aim to show you how to find relevant evidence and how to use the evidence resources in CareSearch to make a difference in your clinical care. These modules are free to use. After completing the learning packages and answering the review quiz, you will be able to print a certificate for your professional records. To get started, select a Learning Module now.
