OBJECTIVE: The “ParZivar II” project had 2 aims: optimization of the “ParZivar I” intervention by individual coaching of physicians, and evaluation of the optimized intervention.
METHODS: The intervention was evaluated in a sequential control group design in 4 rehabilitation facilities with 3 measurement points. A total of n=279 patients with chronic low back pain participated in the study.
RESULTS: The optimized intervention shows the potential to statistically significantly improve proximal outcomes (e. g. goal-centric processes or patient-physician interaction). Regarding distal outcomes, no statistically significant differences were found.
CONCLUSION: The “ParZivar” intervention is a suitable approach to increase participative goal setting. Due to the complexity of the intervention, problems of dissemination and the potential for improvement in study design, there is a need for further research.
