How many long and boring lectures have you sat through just to get clinical tools, tips and tactics?

On the other hand, how many stories have you watched or read where you felt pulled in and transformed into a different person afterwards?

Raconteurs are storytellers.

Here at Research Raconteur, we're a small group of researchers who know the power of an engaging story, so this is where we combine our obsession with the latest injury rehab research with our love for stories.


Let's go on an evidence-based adventure together?

"It's like watching a series.

You know you don't have time to watch another episode but you want to so you do.

When attending a talk or course, I usually struggle to focus for even half an hour but because the videos were short, I felt accomplished after each one and I could take a break every 10 to 15 minutes.

I found the layout very user friendly and I liked that I could work through it in my own time."

- Kalinka Terre Blanche

Clinician at Rainsford Biokinetics

"The way the course was set up was so ideal.

If I could fit the whole course in one day, I think I would have. But it's like a series. Every time you're like one more episode, just one more, one more module.


From the beginning, I understood the flow right until the end. It was very user friendly.


The materials help you stay on top of the game for every session you go into. "


- Jodie Vermeulen

Clinician at SA Biokinetics INC

"You went a step further and said how can we practically implement this with the client.

Most courses they would just say yes instead of using this, use this, and that's pretty much the end of it.


But they don't really get into the specifics of, okay, how would you change your approach if you're using method B instead of your usual method?


And that's what I also love about that specific module."


- Brendon Marais

Clinician at bmbio

"Definitely a lot of value for money"

"and enthusiasm for your career. The other thing was the practical advice. Lots of info but broken down into steps: practical steps. "

- Annamarie van Zyl

Clinician at van Zyl Wait Biokineticists

"These updates help me keep up to date on physiotherapy

evidence-based interventions without needing to search for it in databases.

It really does save time, effort and energy.

My favourite thing is that it is very convenient to learn and read with breakdowns of the information into attractive bite size pieces, making it easy for the reader to digest."

- Candace Goh

"The clinical updates have been a great way to stay up-to-date

on some of the research I may have missed, and also have out some of the grunt work taken out of looking for the research myself while still staying on top of the evidence.

My favorite part of the weekly updates is how easy they are to read!"

- Samantha Greig

and I inform my patients of the updates and what the latest research tells us.

The summary of the articles give me

the most important data in a short but potent way.

Saving me time."

- Denise Gous

"The updates help a lot

in that I'm able to recap on the literature we learned in varsity and it goes more in depth which always helps and it gets me in the groove to read more articles.

My favourite thing about the weekly research updates is how recent the articles are and the humour in the email."

- Bheki Motau

"As a full-time clinician,

there are times when you encounter a rush of patients which reduces the amount of time and effort you may provide to reading research.

This is where these research updates become most useful.

Short and crisp with highlighted findings make the job easier and more effective."

- Payal Adwani

"Just a quick thank you for these emails. Trying to treat patients, get admin done and stay on top of research is such a challenge. 

But these emails make things just a little easier!!"

- Meg Steyn

"The updates have helped stay up to date with research

and there is the added bonus that I am don’t have to sift through all the other articles to find it.

My favourite thing is that

the research is clinically relevant

and easy to understand (even the small bits of information before being given the full article.)"

- Keegan Willemse

quickly learn about things that are relevant in the setting where I work

without spending hours researching and analyzing

papers for quality of research to see if something might apply where I work."

I find the content has a nice variability and covers conditions often seen in an out patient private practice

and therefore very relevant."

change my practices

despite of conventional practice.

I also discuss them with my colleagues in my workplace."

- Rasiah Rakunaraj

"Reading the research and getting better ideas of how we can get the best results for our patients is always welcomed.


Nice summarised version which is relatively quick to look through.

Your twist on presenting the research is always fun.

Not too much information all at once and hence the information is digestible and can be worked on. "

- Dr Ron van As

"I am glad to say your updates helped me a lot.


Our profession is changing at a very fast pace, sometimes I struggle as a full time clinician to find time to look for new information, sometimes I find the amount of info is overwhelming and confusing.

Your updates save me time and energy, they're very short and on point.

Thank you so much for your effort, I really appreciate it."

- Dr. Eiman Alkhezi

to be acquainted with information that

guides my practice as a clinician.

I can go deeper

into them if I find them relevant for me."
