Description:
Low back pain (LBP) is costly to society and improving patient outc omes is a priority. Stratifying LBP patients into more homogenous groups is advocated to improve patient outcome. The STarT Back tool, a prognostic screening tool has demonstra ted efficacy and greater cost effectiveness in physiotherapy settings. The ma nagement of LBP patients in groups is common but to date the utility of the STarT Back tool in group settings has not be en explored. The aim of this study is to determine if the implement ation of ‘stratified care’ when delivered in a group setting will lead to significantly better ph ysical and psychological outcomes and greater cost effectiveness in LBP patients compar ed to a bestcare historical control group.
