Rapid Access Clinics for Low Back Pain
Inter-professional Spine Assessment & Education Clinics (ISAEC)

Rapid Access Clinics for Low Back Pain stems from the Inter-professional Spine Assessment and Education Clinics (ISAEC) model.  ISAEC is an innovative, upstream, shared-care model of care in which patients receive rapid low back pain assessment (less than four weeks on average), education, and evidence-based self-management plans. It is designed to decrease the prevalence of unmanageable chronic low back pain, reduce unnecessary diagnostic imaging as well as unnecessary specialist referral.
