Ian is in the final year of his PhD investigating the role of attention and hypervigilance in the development of chronic low back pain. Ian was one of two treating physiotherapists on the PREVENT low back pain trial, exploring the effect of pain education and reassurance in the prevention of chronic low back pain. Ian works clinically as a physiotherapist, within a multidisciplinary team, at the Northern Private Pain Centre treating patients with a variety of pain conditions.

Making public the pre-specified statistical analysis plan for the PREVENT trial minimizes the potential for bias in the analysis of trial data, and in the interpretation and reporting of trial results.
A Teaser Campaign using a series of branded promotional postcards did not improve clinic engagement for a randomised controlled trial in primary care.
Professional appearance is easily modifiable, and might alter the effects of a clinical encounter. We aimed to determine whether professional attire influences a patient's perception of treatment credibility. In a trial setting, whether or not a clinician is formally dressed has no effect on perceptions of treatment credibility in patients with acute low back pain.
