Bio
Mark has been a practising physiotherapist for 22 years, both in Australia and in Europe, and is the principal of Bend + Mend, a physiotherapy clinic based in the CBD of Sydney, Australia.  He completed his undergraduate physiotherapy degree as well as his postgraduate degree of Master of Health Science (Manipulative Physiotherapy) at the University of Sydney.  Mark worked with PEDro (Physiotherapy Evidence Database) for many years from its inception and was inspired by this work to pursue his own research on the topic of diagnosis in physiotherapy.  He began part-time study towards his PhD in 2015, aiming to look at physiotherapy-relevant diagnostic test accuracy, to review the methodologies of this type of study design, and to design and create a database of diagnostic test accuracy studies in physiotherapy.
