Information for clinicians – Low Back Pain Clinical Care Standard

Guidance for clinicians on the eight quality statements from the Low Back Pain Clinical Care Standard, as well as helpful resources.

What clinicians need to know

The Low Back Pain Clinical Care Standard includes eight evidence-based quality statements to improve the early assessment, management, and review and referral of patients with low back pain, and to improve shared decision making about which tests and treatments are most effective in managing low back pain.

A set of indicators is provided to support clinicians and healthcare services to monitor how well they are implementing the care recommended in this clinical care standard and to support local quality improvement activities.
