Neck Injuries/Medico-legal 

'Excellence in medicolegal reporting' Invited as an expert, to prepare an online 6,000 word review of best practice in writing reports on personal injury with emphasis on neck and back injuries. Published September 2006 on the UK’s largest online educational publication for doctors run by doctors.

‘Personal Injury and Criminal Trauma’ Vols. 1.1 & 1.2 published by Medicolegal Publications.

Mr McCabe was sole author of a review chapter (12,000 words, 13 major references, and many more other papers reviewed) on ‘Soft Tissue Injuries of the Cervical Spine’ covering aspects such as Prognosis, Pathology, Anatomy, Investigations and Treatment.  The chapter is written as an aid for the personal injury lawyer or insurance broker rather than for doctors.

The CD includes contributions from experts such as Professor Bernard Knight, Forensic Pathologist on ‘Wounds and Stabbings’.

Mr McCabe was the sole author of a review chapter on ‘Neck Injuries’ in a CD-ROM for personal injury lawyers, principally entitled ‘Medico-Legal Solutions – Personal Injury and Criminal Trauma’ [Medico-legal Publications].

Mr McCabe collaborated with Prof. Matthew Cooke in the national 'MINT' trial of Physiotherapy vs. standard treatment in Neck Injuries with over 600 patients recruited locally in 2007 [see references for publication in Lancet].
