Did you know that we gather all The Latest clinically relevant evidence from the journals each month and share them with our Physiopedia Plus (PP+) members in a concise email?
The Latest Musculoskeletal
The Latest Musculoskeletal has been around since 2012 and is a collection of articles that relate to the clinical interest areas of musculoskeletal and orthopaedics. Each month there is also a special interest topic that highlights news and research in one particular area.
Check out an edition here.
The Latest Specialities
The Latest Specialities is the new kid on the block. This evidence update gathers clinically interesting articles from all other specific interest areas other than musculoskeletal. Each month there will be Cardiopulmonary, Neurology, Paediatrics, Pain, Older People with special appearances from other less populated topics such as Women’s Health, Oncology, Education, Rheumatology etc.

How do we decide which articles to include?
We look back through the research that was published in the previous month. We will prioritise higher level evidence, full text and openly available articles and topics that are clinically relevant to physiotherapy.
In an ideal world we would link to full test articles for you to read, unfortunately we find it as difficult to access those as you do. BUT, we do our best to find an open access of the article to link to and share it with you if it is available.
We don’t critique the articles or make decisions about their contribution to evidence based practice, that’s for you to do! This is a skill that we all need to have, we must be able to quickly critically analyse what we read anywhere online and make our own decisions as to whether it should contribute to our knowledge base and practice. Sometimes we will throw in a random article that sparks our interest and is intended to promote discussion, it may not always be good!
Special Interest Topics
Each month we also include a special interest topic. Some topics just don’t get enough attention to fill a full section of the newsletter each month so we gather information on these together over a longer period of time and then share them with you when there are enough to fill up our special interest section.
