We Make Research Make Sense –

  • The Evidence Workshop bridges the gap between research and front-line, healthcare. Our sweet spot is rehabilitation. But during the pandemic of 2020, we expanded to include vaccines, masks, and distancing.   
  • We offer workshops in evidence-based decision making. Learning experiences are guided, experiential, and outcome based. We accommodate all levels of expertise and customize content for maximal impact in your setting.  
  • Our blogs and evidence summaries address contemporary topics in healthcare and research with objectivity, nuance, and brevity. We strive to provide compelling content that informs, empowers, and inspires.  
  • We were founded by Dr. Sheila Schindler-Ivens with support from the Office of Research and Innovation at Marquette University.
