Whether you are looking to learn more about paediatric musculoskeletal problems, or are involved in the care of children, then PMM and PMM-Nursing will help you change your clinical practice for the better.


Check out the pGALS app - more translations and also V-pGALS for remote clinics!


PMM is for all clinicians who may encounter children and aims to raise awareness, knowledge and clinical skills to facilitate early diagnosis and referral, where necessary, to specialist care.  

PMM (first launched 2014) has been further developed with global partners to reflect health care across the world and the 'international' version was launched in 2018. Further iterations occur as the clinical landscape changes.

We are very grateful for all feedback - please tell us what you think using the 'pmm for you' anonymised e-survey (link on the home page).  As a result of feedback, multiple pGALS translations and V-pGALS for telemedicine have been developed, and we have several e-learning modules to aid navigation through PMM. The PMM Portfolio includes the website, the pGALS app and e-learning modules - all resources are free and open to all.

PMM is a key partner of the Paediatric Task Force for Global Musculoskeletal Health; raising awareness and promoting better working together to share good practice and improve access to the right care.  Paediatric Task Force activities Twitter (@paedmskglobal).
