      Hello everybody!
      COPY from FB “Saxophone Talk” being fyi

      Saxophonist friends!
      As part of my master’s degree, I am doing research on musicians’ health. Today I am launching an online survey for my data collection. The purpose of this research is to improve our health and education resources for the prevention of injuries and musculoskeletal disorders.
      Here it is:
      This message is for all saxophonists 18 years of age and older.
      We are calling on you to participate in a large survey on saxophonists’ awareness of playing-related physical health problems.
      We invite you to complete an online survey, strictly anonymously, that aims to:
      ● Target the most common physical health problems among saxophonists;
      ● Assess the prevalence of playing-related musculoskeletal disorders (PRMDs) among saxophonists;
      ● Assess saxophonists’ awareness of health an prevention of common PRMDs;
      The survey, which you can complete in no more than 15 minutes, will be available until December 7, 2022.

      It can be found here:

      This survey is being conducted by student researcher Amélie Richard as part of her master’s degree on saxophonists’ health. With the help of her research director, Professor Caroline Traube, she is conducting this survey in order to target the relationships between awareness of playing-related physical health problems and the prevalence of playing-related musculoskeletal disorders. The goal is to improve the resources available to saxophonists to reduce physical health problems and allow them to play more comfortably.
      If you have any questions about this investigation, please contact the research team at:
      The research project has been approved by the University of Montreal’s Arts and Humanities Research Ethics Board (CERAH) – project #2022-2260
      Thank you in advance for your participation!

              Today for example, they put country music on and I went to the next bar.

              Patient: “Hey Doc, is there any chance I’ll be able to play the violin after the operation?”

              Doctor: “After some healing, yes, of course!”

              Patient: “Great! How exciting. I never could before!”



                Genuine medical research and patient confidentiality needs to go through the proper health organisation channels applying to each country.
