dc.description.abstractThis paper summarizes the process of developing and piloting of a standardized data collection (SDC) tool for the audit of acupuncture treatment for low back pain, and presents the main findings. A total of 37 completed SDC tools were received during the pilot data collection period. The results show that 59% (n=22) of patients received acupuncture along with one or more of the other treatment modalities recommended in the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines (e.g. exercises and manual therapy). With regard to the type of acupuncture administered, 19 patients received Western acupuncture, two underwent electroacupuncture (EA), and three patients were given a combination of Western acupuncture and EA. Nineteen patients reported decreased pain levels, two stated that there had been no change and one patient described worsening pain. The patients reported being satisfied with both the treatment that they received and its outcome. It is hoped that more members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists will consider using the SDC tool in the future so that a larger sample of patients can be audited.en
