Professors Birgitta Öberg, Margreth Grotle and Jan Hartvigsen, will facilitate an interactive seminar where presenters will debate issues about important and urgent research questions as well as suggestions of need for actions to make health care for back pain patients better. During the debate, it will be possible for people following the conference (both present and online) to pose questions and comment.
The interactive seminar will be based on the presentations done by the invited speakers at the venue and the Lancet series on back pain. To add to the discussion a panel of researchers will be active with short video presentations, these will also participate in the discussions online.
The output of the seminar is expected to strengthen the development of effective prevention and frontline interventions for back pain, as well as accelerate de-implementation of ineffective and outdated models of care.
