It is often stated that there is a disconnect between research that goes on in academic institutions and clinical practice. It is also often stated that clinicians are too busy to engage in research as they have high clinical workloads. Clinicians need research to inform their practice and researchers need clinicians to be able to access patients so they can deliver research that matters. There is a wealth of knowledge sitting in clinical notes that could easily inform research questions or demonstrate important outcomes in clinical practice. One of the challenges to using this type of clinical data is the variability with which data is collected. The aim of this webinar is to provide clinicians with a framework for collecting good epidemiological data in a logical fashion that helps to inform wider questions. This will be based on research undertaken in a sports physiotherapy environment but has wider applicability to musculoskeletal practice..
