Activity Description
Sessions will include presentations of the latest scientific evidence regarding osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) and topics related to OMM research and practice within the field. Sessions are designed to encourage discussion about evidence and topics presented.

Educational Objectives

  • Provide examples of recent research findings on osteopathic manipulative medicine which they could apply to their clinical practice.
  • Interpret current evidence regarding osteopathic manipulative medicine.
  • Recognize research opportunities in osteopathic manipulative medicine.

Target Audience
Osteopathic physicians and international osteopathic clinicians who are members of DO-Touch.NET.

Professional Practice Gap
Practitioners of osteopathic manipulative medicine need to be reminded what is and is not evidenced-based within the current practice of OMM. This requires keeping informed about the latest research, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of this research. Additionally, they need to recognize how they can apply the current evidence regarding osteopathic manipulative medicine in their clinical practice and learn ways to personally contribute to the science being done in the field.

Educational Need
There are frequent advancements in the evidence base for osteopathic manipulative medicine and for manual therapy in general. Clinicians need to stay informed of the latest evidence.
Informal comments from DO-Touch.NET members indicate that there is the need to keep up with the current research on osteopathic manipulative medicine.

Desired Outcomes
Participants will have expanded knowledge about the current evidence regarding the use, effectiveness, and safety of osteopathic manipulative medicine. They will recognize how they can apply the current evidence to their clinical practice of osteopathic manipulative medicine.
