Dr. Jerrilyn Cambron, professor of research at NUHS, has been elected as a director for the first board of a new consortium dedicated to evidence-informed chiropractic practice.The Consortium of Evidence-Informed Practice Educators (CEIPE), doctor cambronestablished in the summer of 2013, is composed of members from each chiropractic school in the United States and from institutions in Canada and the UK.

The mission of the CEIPE is to provide leadership, training, and support to those chiropractic institutions and educators dedicated to preparing their learners with the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to deliver evidenced-informed health care. In addition, the consortium offers a framework for inter-collegiate cooperation, scholarship, and the dissemination of information.

“The intent is to have all chiropractic schools involved in learning how to teach evidence-informed practice. At NUHS we call it evidence-based practice or EBP,” says Dr. Cambron.

“The first conference was held at the University of Western States last summer, and at least one representative from every college was there. We are now reaching out to international schools of chiropractic to get them involved as well. It is an ambitious group but we truly want this profession to continue to grow. ” Dr. Cambron is also on the planning committee for the next CEIPE conference, to be held in 2015.

NUHS is a strong supporter of evidence-based practice, and integrates EBP principles into the curriculum of each of its academic programs.
