New sports medicine pages in Physiopedia

A recent Project in Physiopedia aimed at developing knoweldge, improving technical skills and value open sharing of work has contributed 24 pages to the Sports Medicine section of Physiopedia. 

Dr Joshua Williams from The University of Oklahoma (Health Sciences Centre) has run two projects in Physiopedia as part of the sports section of their Community Assessment and Planning module on the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program. The students of the University of Oklahoma have been researching and creating evidenced based pages related to Sports Medicine and Exercise Science.

The objectives of the project were to enable the students to:

  • Develop knowledge on a specified topic related to sports medicine.
  • Value the sharing of this knowledge via an open international wiki page to other students and physical therapists around the world.
  • Develop technical skills necessary to continue to share evidence-based information within the physical therapy community.

The project was a great success, Dr Joshua Williams reported back to us that the“students understood the formatting and were able to independently begin editing pages without much instruction; students really explored the topics in-depth and put together good information”

The students worked together in small groups to produce the following pages for the Sports Medicine project:

As well as these pages for the Exercise Science project:
