The article discusses a patient and public involvement (PPI) project that will be integrated into the SALuBRITY pilot trial, which aims to compare the effectiveness of spinal manual therapy and corticosteroid nerve root injections for patients with lumbar radiculopathy. The project involves gathering perspectives from both patients and clinicians and involving them in decisions related to the research question, trial recruitment processes, outcome measures, and more. The methods include interviews with patients and clinicians, as well as surveys to track their experiences throughout the project. The PPI results will be disseminated in a peer-reviewed journal and presented at conferences

Abstract

Introduction: A patient and public involvement (PPI) project will be embedded within the SALuBRITY pilot trial, a two parallel group, double sham controlled, randomised clinical trial. The study aims to compare the effectiveness of spinal manual therapy and corticosteroid nerve root injections, two methods commonly used to treat patients with lumbar radiculopathy. We aim to gather patients’ and clinicians’ perspectives and involve them in decisions related to the research question and objectives, proposed trial recruitment processes and methods, and proposed outcome measures.

Methods and analysis: A small group of patients with lived experience of lumbar radiculopathy and primary care clinicians with experience in the treatment of patients with lumbar radiculopathy are involved. An initial kickoff event will prepare and empower the advisors for involvement in the project, followed by semistructured patient group and one-on-one clinician interviews. We will follow the Critical Outcomes of Research Engagement framework for assessing the impact of patient engagement in research. We will summarise and feedback PPI content to the patient and clinician advisors during a member-checking process to ensure accurate interpretation of patient and clinician inputs. Inductive and deductive thematic analysis will be used for the qualitative analysis of the interviews. Two surveys will be completed at different points along the trial to track the advisors’ and researchers’ experiences over the course of the PPI project. Any modifications to the SALuBRITY trial methods due to PPI inputs will be thoroughly documented and recorded in an impact log.

Ethics and dissemination: The independent research ethics committee of Canton Zurich confirmed that ethical approval for this PPI subproject was not required. PPI results will be disseminated in a peer-reviewed journal and presented at conferences.
