Description

The California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF), a core program of the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), will hold a public meeting on October 19, 2017 to discuss the comparative effectiveness and value of cognitive and mind-body therapies for chronic low back and neck pain.

Back and neck pain are two of the most common reasons for patient visits to physicians in the United States. Approximately one in four adults report experiencing low back pain in the prior three months. There is general agreement that first line therapy for chronic back and neck pain should be non-pharmacologic, but the most effective non-pharmacologic interventions are not known.

ICER's report assesses the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of certain non-pharmacologic, non-invasive interventions for chronic low back and neck pain, including yoga, tai chi, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and acupuncture.

A list of key dates for stakeholder engagement opportunities associated with the review of cognitive mind-body therapies for chronic low back and neck pain can be found on ICER's website at https://icer-review.org/topic/low-back-pain/.

An agenda and meeting slides will be posted to the ICER website before the meeting. A video recording will be published after the meeting's conclusion.
