Is there a doctor in the house?

Interesting article about physical therapists in California who possess a DPT degree now being able to use “Doctor” as a title.

In other news, UK PubMed Central is now up and available.

PT consumer health site

Nice little site from the American Physical Therapy Association devoted to consumers . Not wild about the navigation, but it’s got some really good articles and information about physical therapists.

What’s going on Down Under?

I’ve been prepping for a couple of classes this semester and of course, Evidence-based anything is hot, hot, hot. I’m not complaining. It’s been good to me and it makes for a great pairing with the Information Literacy standards. Shameless plug here.

Anyhow, I’ve been noticing that a lot of really cool free EBP tools are coming out of Australia. There’s PEDro, OTseeker, and OT CATS. All Australian. Plus a good number of EBP conferences seem to be happening in Australia.

Be interesting to find out why…
