Dementia Resource Advisory Board

The Journal of Current Clinical Care and HealthPlexus.NET offer unique opportunities for contributors to disseminate their work to over 12,500 Canadian physicians who access our resources on a regular basis. At a time when other publications ask their authors to pay for publication of their articles, not only do we not have such conditions, but also we invest considerable production resources, including the use of professional medical illustrations and visual aids in our published materials to facilitate knowledge translation.
