News Post: Covid -19 response in a Musculoskeletal Clinic, and Dr Grant Thompson’s publication.


This information was kindly shared with the NZAMM Executive by Dr Grant Thompson and Executive asked that is be sent out for information of others.

You will all by now be talking and thinking about these things.

The key information and the most up-to-date is on the Ministry of health Website

Grant has done the following in his practice:

  1. We are questioning all patients when we phone an appointment reminder the day before.
  2. We are also limiting support people to one.
  3. We have hand sanitiser at reception and are inviting patients to use it, and on every desk, and encouraging staff to hand wash regularly.
  4. We are also wiping down all flat surfaces with Clinill.


Congratulations to Grant on the successful publication of his research undertaken as part of his Masters in Health Sciences ( Pain and Pain Management)

The following reference has been published in the NZ Medical Journal. It is open access.

Thompson, G. and J. F. Pearson (2019). “No attributable effects of PRP on greater trochanteric pain syndrome.” New Zealand Medical Journal 132(1507).


Look out on the website for further news after each Executive meeting.

Dr Jenny Keightley
