Success for PCRN-supported Atlas Neck Pain Trial
The Atlas Neck Pain Trial has successfully recruited and exceeded the 500 patient target, days ahead of schedule.
The study was looking at the effectiveness of using Alexander Technique Lessons and Acupuncture for treatment of patients with chronic neck pain.
The Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) recruited GP practices to take part in the study and supported the study team to calculate and apply for NHS Service Support Costs.
The trial manager has thanked PCRN for their support and commented:
"We would have really struggled to deliver for this population without the PCRN".
