Because a longitudinal curriculum was planned, learning objectives were developed for each learner level and activity, merging with existing objectives for the course if available. To facilitate the integration of CAM content into existing curricula, assessments of the CAM education needs and interests of key groups of learners was undertaken. For each learning activity, a suitable evaluation method was developed.
