Assessment and management approaches for low back pain in young adult populations are poorly studied and rarely discussed. This webinar looks at common signs and symptoms associated with low back pain in the young adult and introduces the learner to a case involving a young athlete with chronic back pain. Key elements of the assessment are presented, as well as a shared decision-making management approach. Shared decision-making is increasingly advocated as an ideal model of treatment decision-making during the medical encounter as it has been shown to improve patient outcomes and increase benefits for both clinicians and the health care system. The approach is characterized as a process involving at least two participants (patient and HCP) interacting together and sharing information to achieve a decision where both parties agree, and is advocated as a bridging mechanism to improve clinician use and patient adoption of clinical practice guidelines. The webinar is supported by two videos in which a patient decision-making aid is used to help determine the most effective approach for the patient.
