Dr. Clare Ardern
Dr. Ardern is an Australian-trained physiotherapist and Assistant Professor in the University of British Columbia's Physical Therapy department. Her research work brings researchers, patients, clinicians and health policy makers together find and build new solutions to challenging problems in musculoskeletal health. Dr. Ardern's expertise in sports medicine, rehabilitation and meta-research has been honed over more than a decade working in clinical and research environments in Australia, Qatar, Sweden and now Canada. She is interested in (i) using everyday technology in clever ways to break down barriers to people accessing quality musculoskeletal health care when and where they need it, (ii) measuring the impact of health research on public policy, the economy and society, and (iii) how high-calibre meta-research (including systematic reviews, network meta-analyses and clinical practice guidelines) can help clinicians make quality decisions.
Dr. Ardern led the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) consensus on preventing, diagnosing and managing paediatric anterior cruciate ligament injuries. She has contributed to 12 international consensus projects across musculoskeletal conditions including hip, knee, back and shoulder pain; return to sport & recreation; and research practices. Major international sports and medicine organisations, including the IOC, World Rowing, Australian College of Sport & Exercise Physicians, Sportfisio Swiss, and the EQUATOR Network, have endorsed her work. Her work on knee injuries and concussion is accessed every day by clinicians and students worldwide via BMJ Best Practice, and her work on research policy has influenced United Nations, US Government, International Science Council and World Health Organization policy.
As Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT) and the gold open access journal, JOSPT Open, Dr. Ardern is helping to translate quality research into quality musculoskeletal rehabilitation clinical practice. She is co-host of the popular weekly JOSPT Insights podcast, which has over 14,000 subscribers.
