PCRMM Webinar: Managing Low Back Pain and Sciatica

31st May 2022, 7pm – 8.30pm

This engaging and extremely interesting webinar will be given by Ian Bernstein and Dan Bourke; they explore what works and what doesn’t work for managing low back pain and sciatica in primary and community care.
They combine a review of NICE guidelines with a discussion about how they implement them in practice.
Questions that they will discuss include:

  • ‘will my patient get better?’ – managing their expectations
  • minimising harm – who should be imaged and what to prescribe
  • how and when to de-prescribe – new NICE guidance expected in April
  • ‘is it really that simple?’ – how to prioritise when people have multiple conditions
