Stress inoculation training and exercise delivered by physiotherapists for acute whiplash injury: a randomised controlled trial.

This project is being conducted across sites in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Mackay and Toowoomba. The intervention is being delivered by twelve community physiotherapists.

Data collection for the RCT is now complete and data analysis is underway.

Interviews with treating physiotherapists have been conducted and thematically analysed. Results indicate that the physiotherapists can successfully deliver the SIT intervention and felt it is a useful additional skill they can utilise in their clinical practice. Some report using it for patients outside the trial. Patient participants will be interviewed in due course.
