Chiropractic Board of Australia Forum 2018 program

05 Jun 2018

The Chiropractic Board of Australia (the Board) has released the program for its July forum.

The Board is hosting a forum on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July 2018 to discuss workplace-based learning: from theory to practice.

The forum will include a mix of interactive presentations and small group activities encouraging participants to explore the application of best practice in workplace-based learning to a range of practice settings. Participants will have the opportunity to build their understanding of workplace based learning principles and consider how these may be applied to their own small group or solo practice. Other topics to be explored include establishing peer to peer learning opportunities, development of identity as a lifelong learner and opportunities to link workplace based learning experiences to continuing professional development.

The forum will be presented by Ryan Brydges (Professor in Technology Enabled Education at St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada), Rose Hatala (Director of the Clinical Educator Fellowship at the Centre for Health Education Scholarship at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada) and Liz Molloy (Professor in Work Integrated Learning in the Department of Medical Education, The University of Melbourne).

The details of the forum are:
