IMPACT - Back Pain Recovery Tool
The University of Sydney, Faculty of Health Science, Discipline of Physiotherapy team have developed two research projects around the issue of lower back pain. The main project (IMPACT) will examine methods of reducing lower back pain relapse after treatment is completed. The team will test a transitional program throughout the services of a “Health Coach” to create an ongoing treatment plan. Large-scale clinical registries are increasingly recognised as important resources for quality assurance and research to inform clinical decision making and health policy.
