The latest news for osteopaths and manual therapists. If you prefer, you can filter by the following categories: Snapshot Summaries from our Centre for Reviews and Summaries; events; research hubs including Bristol, Exeter, Haywards Heath and Leeds. We also occasionally post summaries of articles that appear in The Osteopath and Osteopathy Today magazines. There is also an archive of our old monthly bulletins.

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.
