What do UK osteopaths do? Results from a national survey of osteopaths profiling patients and practice.


This webinar will present the results from our 2019 survey of osteopaths where we asked for information about practitioners, where and how they work. We asked about their patient’s ages and conditions and what happens during consultations.

We will compare the findings from our 2019 survey with our previous 2009 survey to show how practice has changed over the last 10 years.

By the end of the webinar you will be able to compare your practice and patient profile against the national average. The information will also help you describe osteopathy to those who are not familiar with the profession.

Your webinar hosts will be Austin Plunkett, Dr Carol Fawkes and Prof. Dawn Carnes, from the National Council for Osteopathic Research UK (www.ncor.org.uk).
