Resources to encourage critical reflection on current practice, knowledge and traditions. Learn skills to help you interpret, communicate and integrate research evidence to help inform your clinical reasoning, decision-making and navigate the complexities of person-centred clinical practice. Develop your own individual model of clinical practice which is evidence-informed.
Operationalising the biopsychosocial (BPS) framework for the enhanced care of patients with musculoskeletal pain. Learn how to use the BPS principles to situate, frame and develop your musculoskeletal practice, using evidence to ease uncomfortable tensions, confusion and contradictions with the model and your practice.
Enhancing the quality of patient care is at the core of our courses. The resources are not intended to develop skills in marketing, sales or promoting your practice, treatments and interventions. We want clinicians to have the skills and confidence to have better conversations, form more therapeutic relationships and empower patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain.

The CPD market is filled with courses on the 'hard' skills such as manual therapy techniques, exercise assessment/rehab, 'functional' anatomy/biomechanics. However, this make it challenging to develop skills such as communication, therapeutic alliance development, active listening and clinical reasoning. Words Matters is dedicated to meeting this skills deficit across the musculoskeletal health professions. Whether you're an osteopath, physiotherapist, chiropractor and podiatrist you will find our online learning resources engaging, interactive and we hope transformational for your practice.LEARN MORE
