NZMPA Journal Club 2023

This 60 minute zoom sessions dive into various articles, guidelines and consensus statements to help keep those in clinical practice up to date with current literature. Article links will be provided beforehand for those interested in reading. During the journal club, the topical article(s) will be presented briefly before a group discussion around key points. Discussion will be mediated by the NZMPA Executive Committee members who are organising that particular night.

We are encouraging members, or interested individuals, of all skill levels and experience to join and participate. Whether you come to learn, facilitate or broaden discussion, we hope that you will both benefit your own clinical practice and the overall Journal Club goal of encouraging high standards of clinical practice in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
