While they often lack high quality empirical evidence, red flags remain the best tools available to the clinician to raise suspicion of serious spinal pathology when used in the context of a thorough, subjective and physical examination. The framework requires the clinician to consider both the evidence to support red flags and the individual profile of their patient to decide how concerned they are that a serious condition may exist. This webinar will look at how you might apply the framework into practice
