Evidence-Based Healthcare Forum

The 2020 CAHP Evidence-Based Healthcare Forum was held virtually, online, to ensure the health and safety of campuses and communities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Each spring the College of Allied Health Professions sponsors a forum. This interprofessional event is intended as an opportunity for students in all CAHP programs to share scholarly activity that supports evidence-based clinical practice.

The primary goal of the scholarly activity that is presented in the forum is to promote the understanding of the research process in allied health. The ultimate goal is the continuous updating of best practices in clinical settings. There are three  general  categories of  scholarly activity that are presented in this forum: research projects in which data are collected, analyzed, and interpreted; critical reviews of the literature, which address a clinical question based on published, peer-reviewed research studies; and, educational exhibits, which highlight either a specific pathology or new clinical procedure. 

In conjunction with the forum, we honor faculty award recipients for Significance in Research, Excellence in Teaching, Excellence in Clinical Teaching, Innovative Scholarship, and Outstanding Service to the Allied Health Professions.
