June 2016 news bulletin

June saw NCOR invited by the Deparment of Health to a stakeholder event on the reform of regulation of UK health professions. Government feels that the roles and responsibilities of the professional regulatory bodies need to be clarified. NCOR are pleased to have been invited, and we will keep you informed as the process continues.

We’re also continuing with our systematic review of paediatric treatment, and we’re close to starting the hard work of reading and analysing each paper that has made it through the initial sifting. Prior to this, we need to order several papers that we don’t otherwise have access to, and add them to the pile of nearly 100 papers we’re considering at the moment.

Finally, our Centre For Review volunteers continue to generously donate their precious spare time to collating the latest evidence for busy osteopaths to read in bite-size chunks.

June’s bulletin is available as a PDF to download.

May 2016 news bulletin

Another busy month at NCOR (when isn’t it?) with plenty of progress in all our projects. We’re making headway with the systematic review of paediatric patients, and our volunteers are also progressing with each of their chosen evidence summaries. Our January 2017 conference edges ever-closer towards a date and location, while senior research office Carol Fawkes has summarised fifty-nine trials looking at back pain and neck pain. Plus we’re talking at regional societies and colleges throughout the UK, as well as collecting glowing reports from patients with PREOS. Phew!
