Find out more about what the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford is and what it does, with a special emphasis on how we’re working to implement interventions proven in clinical trials in the real-world NHS.

Dr Esther Williamson of the ‘Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences’ will talk about her findings and work developing online tools for training patients and therapists in two clinically proven and NICE recommended interventions:

1) iBeST a group-based cognitive behavioural intervention for low back pain, the leading cause of disability worldwide, that has been shown to significantly reduce disability and pain compared to conventional treatments, and for longer; and
2) the SARAH programme, a proven and effective exercise-based therapy used alongside drugs to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) of the hand.
