EdComm Newsletter 2018

Dear EUSSER Member

We hope you had a joyous Christmas with close family and friends.

As we prepare to say goodbye to 2018 we wanted to thank you for being part of EUSSER community, and hope that you have enjoyed our educational content this year in form of newsletters, literature reviews, podcasts, presentations, workshops and our most recent conference in Geneva where EUSSER celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

In this edition we refer members to review their knowledge of hydrotherapy and its use as adjunct therapy for shoulder rehabilitation. Please refer to a powerpoint presentation by Bruno Santullo in the members’ area of EUSSER titled Media Library. A more comprehensive literature review on the effectiveness of hydrotherapy on shoulder and elbow outcome measures is planned at a later stage.

We wanted to remind you of your free access to two recent podcasts which EUSSER prepared in collaboration with ASSET; for those interested in swimmer’s shoulder we refer you to a podcast with Kevin Kuppens and Angela Tate. And for those with an interest in shoulder injuries in tennis please refer to a podcast with Milena Mirkovic and Natalie Myers. You can access both via the members' area by clicking on The Media Library followed by selecting Audio Podcast.
The events calendar is filling up for 2019 with new courses and conferences on offer to EUSSER members at discounted rates. EUSSER is currently helping organise a one-day study day in Dubrovnik on Friday April 26th alongside SEEFORT congress on the topics of sporting shoulder and elbow. More information will follow on the Events page in January.

Our next annual EUSSER symposium will be held in Holland on December 13-14th 2019. More information will follow, but please save the dates in your diary.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New 2019!
