This week we have a BONUS recommended read, a very recommended read…
Roger Kerry is an Associate Professor at The University of Nottingham, Physiotherapist and Philosopher of Science-in-training. Listeners of The Physio Matters Podcast will know Roger from Session 22 in which he talks with Jack March about ‘Medically Unexplained Symptoms’ – the mysterious ‘thorn in the side’ of traditional evidence based practice.
A keen advocate of evidence-based medicine – how it works (and how it doesn’t), Roger has a deep interest in the use of social media in learning and recently received funding to run a study to investigate whether or not embedding Twitter in physiotherapy undergraduate modules improves learning, reasoning and assessment results. The other day on Facebook, he posed this question on his page:
The response was huge and allowed Roger to put together what has turned out to be a must read ‘Physio Reading List’ containing some of best papers from the past two years. Don’t let the name fool you into thinking this list is only for physios. It’s a fantastic resource for any health care professional in the business of helping people in pain. The list covers a wide variety of topics across physical therapy with inputs from expert clinicians and researchers from around the world – a true testimony to the value of social media in encouraging interdisciplinary communication & shared learning.
Roger Kerry has kindly given me permission to provide a link to the list so let’s waste no more time – download the-physio-somegenic-reading-list-2016 and start adding the titles to your ‘to read’ list!
