Managers as well as practice and competence program leaders will find this research interesting because it explains, in part, why the same feedback strategy works for some individuals but not for others.

The project was funded by the AHS Research Challenge, a “capacity building program” for frontline clinicians to conduct practice-based research. Our research objectives were to examine the feasibility of implementing a psychosocial screening process for physiotherapy outpatients with low back pain seen in AHS North Zone facilities, and identify barriers and facilitators for broader implementation from physiotherapist perspectives.
