Access to epidemiologist-curated (selected), patron-only pointers to full-text peer-review papers and/or podcasts (approximately 4 per month)




The Musculoskeletal Reading Room provides a curated, keyword-indexed feed of recent peer review papers together with selected podcasts, clinical practice guidelines and systematic reviews, each accompanied by links to related papers and resources.  All resources highlighted have been specifically selected to support subscribing clinicians in the practical application of evidence-based practice with particular regard to musculoskeletal pain and injury presentations, including chronic pain.

The Musculoskeletal Reading Room is the brain-child of Elaine Stevenson, an epidemiologist, health information consultant and clinician with over 20 years experience in research and healthcare delivery accross hospital, government and private practice settings, who is passionate about increasing the adoption of evidence-based practice among practitioners who undertake assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.  This project follows on from her earlier project, the Myotherapy Reading Room, which has a growing subscriber base and a large social media following.
Posts follow an annual calendar of topics with each new post being available to members via email and via this interface. Subscription fees are nominal $6US per month.
