Note: This course provides a summary of each study formatted in a uniform and easy-to-use way. It also provides, where available, links to online websites that contain summaries of the studies. However, the course does not provide you with access in many cases to the full, complete study reports written by the study authors. Study authors often charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars to permit one person to access a full study report for a short period of time. Rather than having to charge you thousands of dollars for this course in order to allow you access to the full study reports, we have opted to keep the price of the course at a reasonable amount and only include the study summaries – which basically contain most of the useful information you would want for your practice anyway.
