Communicating with people seeking help for lower back pain

This is a quiz to help clinicians communicate differently with patients with lower back pain. The quiz is a tool designed to assist learning what messages can be helpful or unhelpful when communicating with people seeking care for lower back pain. It also highlights the importance of communication style.

You will be presented with videos and statements containing advice, which you will then mark as ‘helpful’ or ‘unhelpful’. A rationale behind the correct answer will then appear.

A second video will also be presented after you answer. Please note that it may contain examples of either helpful or unhelpful advice, opposite to that of the first video. After viewing the second video, you may move onto the next question.
