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.


February 2022 - PMM is currently undergoing a revision. Access to Videos and E Learning Modules are unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Welcome to Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters for Nurses

Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters for Nurses (PMM-Nursing) is for all nurses who may encounter children with musculoskeletal problems and has been developed in partnership with nursing colleagues from community and school health, health visiting, paediatrics, research, adult rheumatology, specialist areas and the student nurse community. PMM-Nursing builds on the success of PMM (launched 2014) which has had wide reach and positive feedback from around the world. The PMM Portfolio includes the PMM websites (including PMM-Nursing), the pGALS app and PMM e-learning modules - all resources are free, open to all and accessible through the PMM website.

In May 2022, the PMM Portfolio transferred from Newcastle University UK to PReS (Paediatric Rheumatology European Society). This transfer brings long term sustainability for PMM to grow and gives opportunity to reach communities further to raise awareness and facilitate teaching and learning about MSK conditions in children and young people. There is a new global PMM Editorial Board to ensure that PMM covers the breadth of MSK and remains useful and relevant to the wider community. PMM will remain free, open to all and the urls will not change. 

PMM remains closely aligned with the Paediatric Global MSK Task Force. PMM is undergoing a revision in 2022 so sections of PMM may be unavailable at times - please bear with us. 

PMM-Nursing was endorsed by the Royal College of Nursing in 2019.
