Chronic hip pain is both common and disabling in middle aged and older adults. How physiotherapist manage this patient group is unknown. We are asking physiotherapists to participate in a single survey to describe how you would manage a middle aged or older patient with chronic hip pain. By participating in this study you are assisting future research that aims to improve the health outcomes for people with chronic hip pain. You'll be asked to complete an online electronic survey lasting approximately 20-40 minutes. All participants who finish the survey will go in the draw to win an Apple iPad Air.
You may be eligible if you:
- Currently working as a registered physiotherapist in Australia or New Zealand
- Have managed at least one middle aged and older patient with chronic hip pain within the last 6 months
CHASE was designed and developed by researchers (Mr Travis Haber, Dr Michelle Hall, Dr Fiona Dobson, Prof Rana Hinman, Dr Ben Darlow, Prof Bill Vicenzino) at the University of Melbourne, Unveristy of Otago, and the University of Queensland.
