Dr Jerry Draper-Rodi is a Senior Research Fellow at the UCO and an academic clinician.

His current roles include working as a Research Lecturer, and running an osteopathic practice in Oxfordshire. Jerry was awarded a Professional Doctorate in Osteopathy in 2016. His research was on the acceptability, feasibility and likely impact of a biopsychosocially-informed e-learning programme for non-specific LBP on experienced osteopathic practitioners' attitudes to back pain. He has presented his research at numerous conferences, including IFOMPT, SBPR, iO, CAMstrand and ICOM; and published articles in peer-reviewed journals and a book chapter. Jerry is a reviewer for the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine.  In 2016, Jerry received two prestigious awards, including The Research in Practice Award from the Institute of Osteopathy and The Secretaries Award from The Society for Back Pain Research. His research interests include biopsychosocial models of healthcare and their application within osteopathic practice, e-learning in osteopathic education, the effects of neuroscience education, clinical reasoning and mechanisms-based classification of pain, patients' experiences of biopsychosocial osteopathic care, and ways of assessing the therapeutic alliance.
