Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Our aims were to assess the general acceptability of the training package to staff, to assess the acceptability of the multidisciplinary approach and to determine if a generic primary care educator could deliver the training as effectively as a clinical back pain expert.

METHODS:

The majority of participants found the training useful and said that the session had lived up to their expectations. Most found that the session was well planned and that they had sufficient opportunity to participate in learning. The training package was well received by clinical staff, but was less acceptable to non-clinical staff. GPs dominated the small group work discussions. No differences were found between the preferences of participants for the two different trainers.

CONCLUSION:

The training package was appropriate for clinical staff, but did not always meet the needs of non-clinical staff and may require modification for this group. A generic educator can successfully lead multidisciplinary educational sessions addressing clinical issues.
