Research Committee

The Research committee is a collaboration which aims to promote the value and impact of evidence-informed clinical practice and its influence on patient health and wellbeing and to ensure patient needs are met with evidence informed individualised care.

It works to disseminate research relevant to osteopathic practice and to facilitate collaboration across the osteopathic research communities in Europe.

Current Projects

A funded pilot study to support the collection of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), to measure the effect of osteopathic care for patients as part of daily practice. This information is collected directly from patients by an independent research organisation, as evidence for osteopaths in the United Kingdom (UK) and mainland Europe.
