The Massage Therapy Foundation is inviting submissions for its 2018 Practitioner Case Report Contest, an annual opportunity for massage therapists and bodyworkers to develop research skills and enhance their ability to provide knowledge-based massage to the public.
Practitioners interested in entering the contest must report on an independent clinical intervention for one client. Submissions must include a review of the literature on the presenting condition; a discussion of the creation and implementation of a treatment plan in accordance with the literature, the needs of the client, and the practitioner's expertise; and a discussion of the implications of the outcomes, as well as suggestions for future study.
Cash prizes will be awarded for the best reports. In addition, continuing education credit is available through the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork for submitted reports that adhere to all requirements.
For complete program guidelines and submission instructions, see the Massage Therapy Foundation website.
