What are the Experiences of Therapists Using the Online Back Skills Training and Implementing it within Clinical Practice?

Researchers of this study aimed to assess the experiences of physiotherapists who use online Back Skills Training (i-BEST). They chose a qualitative, exploratory approach in which seven physiotherapists were interviewed and asked broad, open-ended questions to discern their experiences with i-BEST training, and the implementation of the training in a clinical setting.
