Event Details

You are invited to the virtual launch of the first national Low Back Pain Clinical Care Standard, hosted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.

Low back pain is a leading cause of disability worldwide. This burden is increasing despite a burgeoning number of treatment options. Back problems and back pain are the second most common reason Australians seek care from their general practitioner, and one of the top five presentations to emergency departments.

Early appropriate management of people experiencing an acute episode is important to reduce the chance of developing chronic low back pain.

Join our webcast to hear the experts discuss the challenges presented by this common condition, and how the standard will improve patient-centred care, while reducing investigations and treatments that may be ineffective or unnecessary.

The event will be hosted by journalist and broadcaster Geraldine Doogue AO.


(Thursday) 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
