This session offers an opportunity to learn about the strengths and weaknesses of specific outcome measures that are commonly used to evaluate low back conditions. The concepts will be applied in case reviews from the perspectives of both a treating provider and a peer reviewer. Attendees will develop skills that they can immediately apply to clinical practice or peer review.
