Course Description



Genetic predictors of recovery and sub-grouping of low back pain patients – where are we and what is the future?

Learning aims

The purpose of the Researchers’ Day (RD) is to facilitate networking and academic discussions among researchers within the chiropractic profession and clinicians with a research interest. Specifically, to inspire to new insights about how genetics impact low back pain and subgroups of patients with back pain.

Content of the activity

A half-day seminar on genetics and sub-grouping of back pain patients. The morning session includes talks from key note speakers (n=2) and interactive discussions with the audience.

In the afternoon, we invite all to present ongoing work, new ideas, interesting projects or methodologies. PhD students and early carrier researchers are given priority. See the Call-for-PhDpresentations document for more information about how to submit abstracts.

Finally, we provide a general news bulletin and updates on the ECCRE projects.
