Vanessa discusses

  • What is research, and why it is important for natural health practitioners.
  • Different types of research - beyond clinical trials such as observation studies and the role they play in clinical practice eg. patient evidence for taking supplements over the longer-term
  • How to assess the quality of research - starting with systematic reviews (and the limitations), as well as Vanessa's checklist to consider when reviewing research
