Clinical Edge has a fantastic library of practical online education that will help you nail down your history taking, assessment and diagnosis so you can formulate the ideal treatment plan for your patients. This will help you achieve great results with your patients, and ultimately improve your job satisfaction and happiness.
Each video is presented by practitioners that have extensive practical experience in the area of their presentation. One example is Andrew Ryan, the current Australian Qantas Wallabies Physiotherapist, who presents topics on AC Joint Injury Assessment and Rehabilitation, Acute Hamstring Injury Rehabilitation, and Impact Injuries to the Shoulder. Each video takes you step by step through the assessment process, and each stage of your patient’s rehabilitation. Andrew is one of the many presenters available on Clinical Edge.
You are able to access the entire library of videos, and refer back to each video at any stage.
Some of the videos available now include:
– The Thorax – the Essential Role of the Thorax in Whole Body Function and the “Thoracic Ring Approach” with Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee

I often have trouble finding the time to sit down and read, so instead I listen to a lot of audiobooks whenever I am mowing the lawn, on the road or otherwise occupied. Audible have a great selection of non-fiction books on clinical, psychology, business and other topics such as The Mindful Therapist, and fiction books I listen to for fun, such as the Mitch Rapp or Jack Reacher series. You can check out Audible with a free trial here.
