Last month we summarised the systematic review by Lemes et al. The review concluded that exercise-based prevention programs may reduce the risk of non-contact musculoskeletal injuries in football (soccer) players.
As you may know, the PEDro Education and Training Subcommittee have been thinking about the format of the infographics we have been producing to summarise the implications of important systematic reviews. In June we sought feedback from PEDro users about their preferred format. Votes for the two options was so close that we have decided to run the poll again.
This month we have produced two versions of the infographic for the Lemes et al review. We invite all PEDro users to give us feedback about their preferred format. We’d like to know which format (original or alternate) would make you more likely to use the infographic to apply the evidence in clinical practice AND your main physiotherapy job (clinician, academic, researcher). You can submit your preference by:
- using the PEDro web-site
- tagging us in a Tweet (@PEDro_database), or
- commenting on our infographic Facebook post on 9 August 2021 (@PhysiotherapyEvidenceDatabase.PEDro).
Both infographics provide some suggestions for providing exercise-based prevention programs for football players. Which do you prefer?
