Excellence in rheumatology research will be celebrated and shared at the 3rd annual scientific meeting of the Australia & New Zealand Musculoskeletal Clinical Trials Network (ANZMUSC) in Adelaide next month.
The two-day meeting will feature Australian research, which has been published in some of the most prestigious medical journals.
On the program to present their research and lessons learnt are:
- Associate Professor Justine Naylor with her work on inpatient versus home based rehab following knee replacement
- Professor Rana Hinman on unloading shoes for self management of knee osteoarthritis
- Dr Xingzhong Jin on an RCT of vitamin D supplementation for tibial cartilage volume, and
- Associate Professor Christine Lin for the PRECISE trial investigating the efficacy and safety of pregabalin for sciatica.
ANZMUSC chair Professor Rachelle Buchbinder said the program will also include educational sessions of value to both established and early career researchers.
“Some of the expert clinical trialists on the program include executive director of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) Professor Steve Wesselingh and heart disease research theme leader Professor Stephen Nicholls.”
“We will be presenting preliminary findings from a systematic review of priority setting in musculoskeletal research internationally and updating the network on developing our own priority list,” Professor Buchbunder said.
The program will also include discussion of new research proposals and updates:
- on the plans to establish a new Centre of Research Excellence for ANZMUSC
- from two clinical trials endorsed at the 2016 meeting
- about the proposed consumer research registry.
