Background: Ensuring teaching faculty are well-informed of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines may help to ensure chiropractic students are educated accordingly throughout their training. This is imperative for maintaining high-quality education and developing competent chiropractic graduates. Objective: To develop a pedagogically-sound, technology-based learning tool aimed at improving knowledge of an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for teaching and clinical faculty at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Methods: I developed an online, module-based learning tool using an integrated knowledge translation approach informed by a systematic review and pedagogical theory. I conducted a cross-sectional evaluation of the user-centred constructs in a sample of teaching and clinical faculty. Results: The constructs of the learning tool were evaluated favourably. Participant feedback informed the development of pedagogically-focused recommendations for future development of the learning tool. Conclusions: My research can inform the development of pedagogically-sound, educational tools aimed to improve knowledge of clinical practice guidelines for chiropractic educators.
