How Clinical CPD™ Began
By Founder Elham Nia, DC
Several years ago, when I was looking for ways to earn my own Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours, I was disappointed to find that most of the available programs and seminars were either of no immediate relevance to my clinical practice or took me away from my patients and my family.
With a background in chiropractic education for many years, I was inspired to research and create materials that would augment my clinical competence. It then became a natural progression to transform this material into a format and platform that would make it available and useful to my colleagues too. Hence, my online educational programs were born in 2008.
I initially offered my courses to Chiropractors in Australia and New Zealand (www.cpdo.com.au). However, when colleagues from North America enquired about the availability of the courses in their jurisdiction, I decided to create the Chiropractic Online CE™ website and provide approved Continuing Education courses suitable for DCs in the United States and Canada (www.chiropracticonlinece.com). I am now pleased to offer my courses to my colleagues in the United Kingdom (www.clinicalCPD.co.uk).
Course Materials and Resources
Our course materials and resources have been developed and reviewed by a team of practitioners with extensive academic and clinical experience in musculoskeletal conditions. The courses have been designed to provide participants with the most up-to-date diagnostic procedures and interpretations, with content that has been compiled from evidence-based resources, including peer-reviewed journals, specialist organisations and authoritative texts. All courses include examples of patient presentations and help the participant to learn how a targeted clinical evaluation methodology with a problem-solving approach can be used to enhance diagnostic accuracy and efficiency in practice. The material also presents videos of special examination procedures, a set of questions to identify “red flags” and videos on how to perform a quick neurological screening examination to rule out serious pathology.
