Plano, TX (PRWEB) July 16, 2013
In response to new continuing education requirements set by the National Certification Board For Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) for research, approved provider HomeCEUConnection.com introduces five courses to their online catalog.
"The new research requirement comes from the NCBTMB's commitment to raising the standards and providing legitimacy to the entire massage therapy profession by ensuring consistency and accuracy in all future massage therapy literature and education," explains Anne Osborn, owner of HomeCEUConnection.com. "A commitment that our company echoes when we introduce new courses like these to our online catalog."
The five new courses offer learning in two distinct formats, text or video. All courses allow therapists to the option receive their material through the mail or a digital download and the ability to complete exams online for instant grading.
For massage therapists looking for the most engaging way to complete their research requirement, HomeCEUConnection.com suggests "Orthopedic Mythbusting", a video based course from renowned massage therapist and continuing education presenter Lu Mueller-Kaul. Lu's three hour course succinctly discusses research methods developed by Paul Ingragam, assistant editor for ScienceBasedMedicine.org, and helps therapists locate and determine the most important resources for recent pain research.
For those who prefer text based learning, HomeCEUConnection.com has four modules of Research Methods for Massage and Holistic Therapies available now in the course catalog. Each module explores a variety of techniques for mining accurate data for the massage profession.
Research Methods for Massage and Holistic Therapies: Module One, offered for three continuing education hours, discusses a deductive approach to viewing the research process and ethical principles governing research in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.
Module Two examines the experimental/randomized controlled trial research method, electronic literature searching, research report format and stylistic requirements, and measurement and statistics as research tools. This course is worth six hours of continuing education.
