4. Two new PEDro systematic review updates have been published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine
Since 2011 the British Journal of Sports Medicine has featured a section entitled “PEDro systematic review update” in most issues. This section is a summary of a systematic review indexed on PEDro. Two new PEDro systematic review updates were published in August 2015:
- Management strategies for sciatica
- Effects of regular physical exercise training in adults with chronic kidney disease
For more information please visit the PEDro British Journal of Sports Medicine page.
Did you know that over 12% of PEDro users speak Portuguese and that physiotherapists in Brazil are the third biggest users of PEDro (after Australia and the USA)? To make PEDro more accessible to Portuguese speakers we have launched PEDrinho! Portuguese versions of the PEDro Twitter, Facebook and Google+ feeds are available through PEDrinho.
Industry partnerships are critically important for PEDro. It is through these partnerships that we are able to keep PEDro as a free, robust internet tool for practising physiotherapists from around the world. We thank the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) for renewing their partnership with PEDro for another year.
In September the PEDro newsletter (will replace the email list) and blog (will replace the What’s new page) will be launched. The newsletter and blog will summarise all developments with the PEDro resource. Both will be available in English and Portuguese. You can register for newsletter on the PEDro home-page.
