These back pain profiles contain health intelligence produced by NEQOS to support the implementation of the national pathfinder project to provide better pathways of care for people with low back and radicular pain. The NHS England Pathfinder Projects were established to address high value care pathways which cross commissioning and health care boundaries.
As well as NEQOS support for measuring the outcomes of the AHSN’s improvement programmes, NEQOS provides leadership to the new regional Patient Safety/Quality Improvement programme through our Deputy Director, Tony Roberts.
For more information on the AHSN’s work, see AHSN NENC.
Supporting the Academic Health Science Network for North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) in its role to assist healthcare professionals in implementing best practice guidance, NEQOS led and facilitated the Collaborating for Better Care Partnership (CfBCP) on the AHSN’s behalf.
