The CLAHRC and its partners have repackaged the essentials of the original BeST course into an easily accessible online e-learning system, called iBeST.

This will allow more clinicians to be trained more quickly in how to deliver BeST to their patients with low back pain. Rapidly bringing this treatment to patients across the NHS to improve their quality of life and reduce their low back pain.

iBeST consists of a number of modules including explanatory videos and downloadable information and patient packs.

Delivering the BeST training online has three main advantages:

  1. Costs are far lower.
  2. Training is much more accessible across the NHS.
  3. Uptake of this approach across the NHS could be far more rapid.

All of which work together to bring the benefits of BeST to more patients sooner.
