About Us

Aim: To promote the value and impact of research, to raise its profile in clinical practice to influence patient health and wellbeing to ensure patient needs are met with evidence informed individualised care, by disseminating research relevant to osteopathic practice and to facilitate collaboration and communication.

4 key objectives:

  • Profile research relevant to osteopathy, to the Osteopathy Europe community
  • Raise awareness of research opportunities in Osteopathy Europe member countries through the Osteopathy Europe and promote collaboration 
  • Advocate and encourage osteopaths, through the Osteopathy Europe stakeholders, to embrace good standards of clinical practice in research and research education
  • Represent the Osteopathy Europe on matters of research and support the other Osteopathy Europe working groups

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.
