Research appraised by OrthoEvidence (OE)

Clinical research recently published in the Journal of Shoulder & Elbow Surgery has attracted clinical appraisal by the OrthoEvidence (OE) knowledge dissemination portal. 

After careful review, A blinded, randomized, controlled trial assessing conservative management strategies for frozen shoulder, co-written by Mr Arpit Jariwala, Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery, University of Dundee, was chosen as evidence in favour of hospital-based physiotherapy as compared to home or individual treatment.

OE is a global online source for high quality and timely orthopaedic-only evidence-based summaries, pre-appraised by orthopaedic medical experts and built specifically for the orthopaedic community. OE was created with the inspiration to provide critical information access to orthopaedic healthcare providers and their patients everywhere. The portal was founded in 2009 and is led by Dr Mohit Bhandari (Professor and Academic Head, Orthopaedics, McMaster University) and currently has over 10,000 members. OrthoEvidence’s mission is to be the best source of information for the orthopaedic community worldwide

More of Mr Jariwala’s research, and that of the Department as a whole, can be found at the Department's Publications web pages.
