By working collaboratively with clinicians, researchers, consumers and policy makers, we strive to improve care and health outcomes for people with musculoskeletal conditions.

We are currently recruiting participants for a number of trials across our Centre.

Please check the eligibility conditions carefully before applying for a trial. If you are ineligible for any of our current trials, please check back as this section is updated periodically.

  • PROPOSE study
    The PROPOSE (Professional Referral to Physical Activity, Sport and Exercise) study is looking to interview people aged 50+ across Australia who have seen a physiotherapist in the past two years. Interviews will take approximately 30 minutes and will be conducted by phone or video call.
