(Save to cal)

Collingwood Library (Meeting Room) 11 Stanton St, Abbotsford VIC 3067, Australia


Join us next Thursday for our last speaker presentation of the year where Jon Wardle will delve into the increasingly relevant topic of where evidence-based medicine and traditional medicine meet. Speaking from his recent publication by the same name, Jon will discuss the perceptual pull that is felt by naturopaths between the two seeming polarities of science and tradition, outlining not only the differences but also the unexpected similarities that these two opposites may have. He will explore the possibilities that exist for modern-day practitioners to find a sustainable equilibrium between the two to ensure that the objective of clinical practice remains to achieve improved patient outcomes through personalised health care. With Jon's vast experience and breadth on the topic, this will surely be a presentation not to be missed.
