Congratulations to Dr. Carol Cancelliere, the Project Lead for the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI), a project administered by the Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation, a joint program between CMCC and Ontario Tech. Cancelliere, working with a team comprised of CMCC's Director of Research Partnerships Dr. Silvano Mior, Canada Research Chair in Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Dr. Pierre Côté, and collaborators Drs. Margareta Nordin (New York University), and Paulo Pereira,(Centro Hospitalar S. João, Porto (Portugal)) was successful in receiving funding from the Task Force Research, EUROSPINE this September.
The team received €48,635 (approximately $75,000 CAD) to address the increasing need to inform post-surgical care for people with low back pain. For this research project, the CCGI will collaborate with EUROSPINE to conduct a systematic review to evaluate the effectiveness and safety, and patient experience of post-surgical rehabilitation interventions for people with low back pain with or without radiculopathy.
