It's all about the case.
CDI's approach to education is unique. Clinical professionals are used to learning every day during their patient encounters - by solving problems and answering relevant questions.
Therefore we take the latest evidence-based information and weave it through tailored clinical cases. We avoid dry Powerpoint-style presentations and engage you with patient stories and fantastic visuals. This makes learning easy, fun and memorable.
CDI's programs are fully accredited in Australia by the CAA. You'll receive a formal certificate after completing each activity. Better yet, your MyCPD Portfolio will automatically keep track of every learning activity you complete and give you a running total at any time. You can even record non-CDI activities, such as other seminars, journal reading or professional meetings by manually entering them in your Portfolio.
Your practice day is filled with short cases and many different clinical scenarios. So this is exactly how your CPD should be. Many different topics. Just what you need to know. An emphasis on making good decisions quickly.
We match the topics to the situations that most commonly present to you in practice. Insights rather than just information. Distinctions rather than just a data-dump. Knowing what to do instead of just knowing a lot of detail. Each Diagnostic Drill is designed to give you clarity on a certain clinical topic – either pathological or functional.
The chiropractic practice of the future is built on strong referral relationships. However, the key to your success lies in positioning yourself as an expert, not a therapist. To do this requires great skills in communication. You must learn how to describe your uniqueness in a fashion that is understandable to your medical colleagues, yet differentiates you from others.
In each Communication Drill you will learn how to use language as a vehicle for building trust and to define what you do. It's an exercise in fashioning and refining your place in the health care team. You must become familiar with the questions that a concerned medical practitioner may have and learn how to answer them.
Our eLearning Episodes are video-based masterclasses in diagnosis. When you subscribe to ACADEMIA you gain immediate access to the entire library and can watch any Episode as often as you like. Each comes with a downloadable work-sheet and a structured learning plan.
Every Episode presents a real patient case and challenges you to make the right call. We match the topics to the situations that most commonly present to you in practice. This is not a dry Powerpoint presentation that you have to endure, our interactive eLearning Episodes are entertaining, stimulating and multi-sensory.
