About the MIBAC Practitioner Training
The training programs from Spine Care Partners have been used in a variety of settings, in several different states (i.e. New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island), and have consistently had high levels of participant satisfaction and strong evidence of success in defined measures of appropriate care patterns (e.g. use of imaging, rate of surgical referrals, etc.). This program has been successfully implemented through Excellus Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Upstate New York).
“Our family has been in chiropractic practice for over 95 years. We feel the MIBAC training reinforced current practices and protocols in our office. We also feel that it gave us additional training in management of acute low back pain cases. The aspect of opening up collaboration and referrals with other healthcare professionals is also a great plus. When individuals, groups, and offices work together for the good of the patient’s needs, favorable and cost-effective outcomes can certainly be achieved. We are proud to be a part of the MIBAC initiative.”
“I went through the level 1 training and especially enjoyed the communication tips and the video for the back exam. I have used these tools to help educate my patients, and my patients have been very receptive to my recommendations.”
“The MIBAC collaboration has helped our clinic build relationships with local primary care physicians to help properly co-manage spine pain patients in an efficient manner in terms of triage, diagnosis and appropriate treatment. .”
