INTEGRATE Clinical Trial
A feasibility study exploring new ways of managing neck and back pain after road traffic crash in Western Australia
What is this study about?
We are looking for people with neck or back pain after a recent road traffic crash in Western Australia to participate in a clinical trial.
We will compare two different ways of treating neck or back pain associated with a road traffic crash. We want to find out which might be best and what the associated costs of each are.
Currently, it is uncertain which treatment approach is best for neck and back pain and the benefits of treatment are often short-term.
New studies suggest that it may be useful to integrate treatment from various health care professionals to address all aspects of a person’s pain experience.
The current project will test this integrated approach compared to usual care in a pilot study of 60 people.
This project will help inform health care practitioners, funders, and policy makers about better care for individuals with these quite common injuries.
We have ethics approval from Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (approval HRE2020-0470), Royal Perth Hospital (approval RGS0000004762) and Ramsay Health Care WA|SA (approval 2130W).
