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.

  • Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee has approved this study (HREC number HRE2020-0470)
