This page provides information about some key resources for Osteopathy.

You should also look at the general Health Care Web pages otherwise you will miss out on useful information!


  • AMED : Allied and Complementary Medicine – Covers OT, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, complementary medicine and allied subjects, primarily through journal articles. The scope of coverage is mainly European with the majority of titles in English.
  • CINAHL – Nursing and Allied Health, including journal articles, some books and book chapters, dissertations and reports. More US-focused coverage than AMED.
  • CIRRIE – Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange database, which currently contains 22,000 citations of international (non-US) rehabilitation research published between 1990 and the present.
  • PubMed – the key database for clinical topics.
  • OTSeeker – free database that contains abstracts of systematic reviews and randomized controlled trials relevant to occupational therapy.
