Anne Mette Schmidt, Berit Schiøttz-Christensen, Nadine E Foster, Trine Bay Laurberg, Thomas Maribo

Results: A total of 303 patients were assessed for eligibility of whom 165 (mean age: 50?years (SD 13) and mean Oswestry Disability Index score 42 (SD 11)) were randomized (83 to existing rehabilitation programme and 82 to integrated rehabilitation programme). Overall, 139 patients provided the 26-week follow-up data. Baseline demographic and clinical characteristics were comparable between programmes. The between-group difference in the Oswestry Disability Index score when adjusting for the corresponding baseline score was -0.28 (95% confidence interval (CI): -4.02, 3.45) which was neither statistically nor clinically significant. No significant differences were found in the secondary outcomes
