ICrA Health Talk Series

Patients expect practitioners, no matter their discipline, to be conversant with chronic health conditions, medical controversies and different therapeutic approaches. When receiving referrals from or making referrals to other healthcare professionals, it is important to be conversant with biomedical and a wide range of therapeutic models. For this reason, the ICrA is offering five series of monthly health talks on the themes of: health priorities, medical controversies, chronic health conditions, different therapeutic approaches and environmental aspects of health.
