Journal Club
Share |

Are you a busy clinician who wishes to implement evidence-based practice techniques? The Academy's Secondary Knowledge Committee has a solution for you: Academy Journal Club.

Journal Club session will be offered bi-monthly through the Online Learning Center. For course completion, participants will:

  1. read the designated article,
  2. review the summary presentation, 
  3. take the course exam and, 
  4. discuss both with your colleagues and/or with those whom you choose to form a local club. You and your local journal club colleagues may also post questions or comments to the national discussion board via the Academy website.

Before participating in Journal Club, we recommend reading these two articles:

"How to Read and Understand A Journal Article" - Jennifer Raff

"How to Critically Read a Journal Research Article" - Thomas Lunsford

This Session's Article

April 1 - June 30, 2020

Research studies on patients' illness experience using the Narrative Medicine approach: a systematic review
Fioretti C, et al.

Read this article, then head over to the Journal Club section of the Academy's Online Learning Center to review the presentation. After that you'll need to discuss this research with your local journal club, post to the discussion board, and take the quiz for CEUs.
