    Abstract

    Health care professionals with more positive attitudes towards patients with chronic low back pain are more likely to provide their patients with evidence based care. Thus it is important that student physiotherapist's attitudes become more positive over the course of their degree. There is evidence that this occurs within four year degree programmes, but no studies have looked at three year courses. The aim of this study was to investigate the difference in attitudes of students towards functioning in individuals with chronic low back pain between year 1, 2 and 3 students on a three year physiotherapy undergraduate degree programme.
