Educational Opportunity in Advancing Tendon Management

An international research project is being led by Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, investigating the effectiveness of education delivered via social media.  As part of their trial, they will be disseminating clinically relevant practice points on improving the management of tendon diagnosis and rehabilitation, constructed from new evidence in the field.

The opportunity to take part is available to any health professionals (clinicians) or health professional students who are involved in musculoskeletal or orthopaedic clinical practice.  This trial involves receiving practice points and evidence-based information about tendon management from the Monash Tendon Research Group via a social media platform. You will also be asked to complete an on-line questionnaire and knowledge/practice assessment both before and after you receive the postings. Both the questionnaire and assessment will be anonymous, and the assessment answers will be made available post – study.

Instruction on how to use social media will be provided, as well as how to access the educational feed. All you need is a web-enabled device, 15 minutes for their pre-post survey, and a few minutes spare to track their practice points during the trial being conducted during September 2014 for around 5 weeks.
