Upcoming Masterclass

If you have completed at least eight of the online modules in the Griffith University Short Course in Integrative Medicine you are eligible to attend the one day CPD accredited Masterclass in Integrative Medicine, offered by A/Prof Evelin Tiralongo and Adjunct A/Prof Greg Mapp from the School of Pharmacy at Griffith University.   This new course is now even better placed to provide pharmacists and other healthcare professionals with practical information on key health conditions, thus enabling them to deliver evidence-based complementary medicine advice to their patients and customers.   This interactive, face-to-face Masterclass focuses on evidence by emphasizing on clinical cases and practical relevance through updated information and group discussion. This includes for you: CPD credits, folder of teaching materials, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea and a Griffith University certificate of completion.


The presenters have over five years’ experience in delivering the Short Course in Integrative Medicine, and the newly developed one-day Masterclass received overwhelmingly positive reviews when offered in Sydney last year: "Great to see supportive evidence for correlations continuously encountered in daily practice." "The between the line advice and knowledge was exceptionally helpful." " Great to build on my working knowledge, gained latest evidence information." "It's definitely going to help me improve the wellbeing of my patients."
