AAP Education: Recommended On line Resources

​A question that I am often asked about relates to what information do I follow online. Well to be truthful that varies a heap, depending upon what area of interest you are asking about. So I have cut out farming, my PhD, online education and scuba diving but the list seems still pretty long. Perhaps consider it a shopping list and look to pick and choose those bits that interest you at this point in time.

MSK Physiotherapy

W.A. https://www.facebook.com/musculoskeletalphysiotherapywa/

N.S.W. https://www.facebook.com/mpansw/


There are just so many journal sites that I am not really going to get started on them. My interests range across sleep medicine (my PhD topic), MSK, Sports and Spinal (bread and butter work), foot biomechanics (my fetish) and ..... (general interest).

What I would suggest if you have a journal of interest, look for a subscribe to their RSS feeds (get updated information in your browser bar) or subscribe to their electronic table of contents updates (usually emailed to you at regular intervals). These are quick ways to keep updated with recent publications but just looking at their titles.

Meta Journal Site

MDXLinx www.mdlinx.com

MDLinx is an internet-based service that offers physicians and other healthcare professionals a quick means of staying current with academic literature.

When you first register you can select from a range of specialty areas and opt to receive a range of information. I currently receive a weekly digest of journals in the areas of spine and sports medicine (there are about 30 other topic options) contining the heading and journal title of what are the most recent or popular articles in these fields. Easy to scan and when you click, you are linked to a short abstract (often pathetic, but a starting point if you are interested in the topic).

Manual Therapy

Acupuncture in Medicine


A bi-monthly scientific and clinical journal aimed at Western-trained physicians and other health professionals, and uses the prevailing understanding of neurophysiology and anatomy to interpret the effects of acupuncture. The Journal largely restricts its published articles to this Western approach. Clinical reports of the effects of traditional acupuncture will be considered, and theoretical aspects that are evidence-based.
