April 16, 2012  By Massage Therapy Canada

The Foundation has offered the Case Report Contests, for both
practitioners and students, since 2006. 
These contests are held as a way to encourage the writing of case
reports and to provide an opportunity for massage and bodywork practitioners
and students to develop research skills and enhance their ability to provide
evidence informed massage to the public. Cash prizes are available to the
winners of each contest. Prizes are contingent on publication of the case

Case reports play an important role in the professional
literature. This contest is intended to enhance professional development skills
of the practitioner: writing case reports helps develop communication skills,
critical thinking skills, and could contribute to future research and clinical
practice. Additionally, continuing education credit is available through the
National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) for
submitted reports that adhere to all requirements.

The 2012 deadline for submission is October 1.
