Navigating Back Pain Care: a Sociological Study of Women's Illness Pathways Within and Between Intersecting Social Worlds

Project Member(s): Adams, J., Sibbritt, D.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2011

Summary: Back pain affects most people at some point in their life. It is difficult to treat, choosing a provider can be confusing, and it is costly for the Government. This project will provide comprehensive data on women's journeys through back pain care, their experiences of different providers, and how they negotiate competing ideological perspectives.
