Low back pain

Consider reviewing 20 patients with a diagnosis of low back pain in the past year. Look at their management.

  • Has the problem resolved?
  • Did they have time off work?
  • Was a 'fit note' issued? If so:
    • Could their case have been managed differently to get them back to work sooner?
    • What was the outcome of the certification?
    • Has the patient returned to work?
  • Were their psychological risk factors for persistent disability formally assessed and documented?
