This edition of the Orthopaedic Division Review looks at TMJ management. This is a challenging topic for many clinicians, and we hope that you find the articles and clinical tidbit useful! There is also an original submission from Jennifer Harwood, BScPT, FCAMPT and Andrew White, BPE, BScPT, FCAMPT that we are excited to present. It is an excellent summary of clinical outcome measures, and a glossary of terms for interpretation of these measures. Hope you enjoy reading this edition!

Over the past year the education committee has explored making changes to the way the diploma system is administered and examined. We are now ready to implement changes that affect the order of the examinations and courses. Download the document
The Orthopaedic division is pleased to provide access for its members to the Cervical Manipulation Information Sheet (CMIS). The document is now available on the Documents for Download page of the members only section of the OD website and can be downloaded in a pdf format.
The CMIS is an evidence based tool created for clinicians. In order for informed consent to be valid when administering a cervical manipulation, certain information must be communicated. The CMIS is designed to help guide one through all of the pertinent information. In addition, the CMIS contains literature references for clinical predictors for those likely to respond to cervical manipulation or those likely to have an adverse event. As well, treatment outcomes regarding both effectiveness of cervical manipulation and adverse events are provided. This additional information will serve to help the clinician in the critical reasoning process when deciding whether a cervical manipulation is an appropriate technique for each patient. The references in the CMIS are current as of October 2008. It will be updated on a yearly basis or as new information is published.
Please review the new MENTORSHIP GUIDELINES as well as obtain access to the mentorship database.
