Description Our standardized low back pain (LBP) outcome, the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), is only completed during 32% of visits by patients with LBP, making it difficult to understand the value of PT care for the vast majority of patients seen for this diagnosis. Can we engage staff and patients to increase the collection of standardized outcomes data to better inform current and future practice?
