The Evidence-Informed Chiropractor

Current, to-the-point, on-demand

For all of us, while new information becomes exponential our time availability becomes incremental. 


To keep current, it is important to get easy-to access and understandable summaries from a trusted source.


   Coffee Break Presentations


Keep Current with Short, Concise, Video Presentations


Coffee Break Presentations are video presentations between 10-15 minutes in length that ensure focus and interest remain intact


Thomas Souza, D.C., author of Differential Diagnosis and Management for the Chiropractor: Protocols and Algorithms, 5th edition, presents information in a concise and cogent format.  Presented in language you can understand with information you can apply in practice.



subscription to The Evidence-Informed Chiropractor's Coffee Break Presentations provides a starting library of 168 videos with additional videos added each month.  New videos keep you current with reviews of the most significant articles relevant to chiropractic practice and keep your Differential Diagnosis text current. 

With restraints on time, information must fit the attention span limits and work limits of the listener.     

              Review, rewind, pause and ponder
