A two arm cluster randomised controlled trial involving 30 GP practices
Investigate if prognostic stratified primary care is clinically effective and cost-effective at 6 months compared with usual non-stratified GP care.
1 Examine whether stratified care changes GP practice behaviour
2 Compare stratified care with usual care for patients in each risk strata
3 Ascertain patients’ understanding and responses to stratified care
The active intervention is stratified care involving the STarT MSK Tool and matched treatment options for patients at low, medium and high risk of persistent disabling pain. The control treatment is usual GP care.
