The webinar introduces an evidence-informed, patient-centered approach to the application of the biopsychosocial model in the diagnosis and management of patients with spine-related disorders. Clinical Reasoning in Spine Pain® (CRISP®) was developed based on the vast literature in the spine filed over a period of over 20 years. We will cover the utilization of the CRISP® protocols to establish a working diagnosis, considering the various potential biological, psychological and social contributing factors, and embark on a management strategy designed to address each factor.
- Recognize the biopsychosocial model of spine related disorders
- Explain the application of the CRISP® protocols in the diagnosis and management of patients with spine related disorders.
- Discuss the role that CRISP® plays in primary spine care.
