Welcome to this edition of The Allied Health Scholar

We are very pleased to be presenting our second volume for 2021, that keeps with our vision of supporting the dissemination of research evidence with a focus on allied health. In this volume, the contributions reflect the diversity of topics of interest to allied health professionals: from the value of international placement experiences to hypermobility of joints.

We also continue to share the valuable work of allied health undergraduate students in developing evidence for practice. In this volume, we have a featured evidence-based review on The Zones of Regulation program. In addition, we have secondary evidence reviews, submitted by students to fulfil assessment requirements associated with their Advanced Evidence Based Practice course, where we have provided a select few focussing on exercise recovery.

As this is our final edition for 2021, our planning for next year and beyond, has started where we will continue to champion clinician-driven research and foster student and early career researchers. In doing so, we wish our readers, authors and production team good health for the coming months and a hopeful return to some semblance of ‘normality’ following the COVID-19 pandemic.
