The Osteopathic Practitioners, Estimates and RAtes
(OPERA) is an online-based osteopathic census looking at surveying osteopathic professionals across Europe. The mission is to collect data from all osteopathic practitioners in Europe and produce benchmarks. The vision is to make osteopathic data available to the public.
Thus our view, which is very inclusive, is to work collaboratively with local professionals and therefore with associations, institutions and other bodies.
Our beliefs are based on the fact that having all the EU countries surveyed will increase the chance to move towards an homogeneity of different relevant osteopathic aspects important for patients, osteopaths, institutions, stakeholders and policymakers. This will be based on data transparency and impacts are easy to imagine.
