|Experimental: Quality improvement program||
Other: Behavioral and managerial
The quality improvement program is a multi-level intervention program to increase adherence to the Dutch physical therapy Guidelines for Low Back Pain. It consists of two program parts, one for practice quality managers and the other for individual therapists. The management part aims to increase commitment amongst practice owners towards high quality of care, including the appropriate use of guidelines, and addresses the structure and the culture of the physical therapy practice. This part of the program is based on the INK management model and the colour model of De Caluwé. The individual part of the intervention is aimed at increasing physical therapists' guideline adherence by raising awareness and improving recording and clinical reasoning. This part of the intervention is based on psychosocial and educational theories and especially on the principles of Self Regulation.
|Experimental: Electronic patient device (EPD)||
Other: Behavioral and IT
The interventions makes use of an improved EPD for physical therapists. Compared to the existing EPDs, the EPD for the present study presents decision information for physical therapists. This decision information is directly based on the recently revised physical therapy guidelines for Low Back Pain and attached to the subsequent steps of clinical reasoning that are inherent to the diagnostic and treatment stages of the usual process of physical therapy care.
