General information

The EDISC course offers 7 online modules covering a range of topics, including issues related to the biomedical versus biopsychosocial model, how best to integrate new evidence into practice, how to collect clinical evidence, and how to overcome barriers to interprofessional care.
Each completed module brings you closer to achieving CME credits recognised by a certificate. Flexibility is at your fingertips, with the option to take certain modules out of sequence. For those seeking the ultimate achievement, the prestigious EDISC Diploma can be achieved within a maximum of three years of completing all modules.
