What is it about?
We tested in our research if the Back At work After Surgery (BAAS) care pathway is feasible to implement as daily care. We also inventoried possible improvements voor the BAAS care pathway, to ensure optimal quality. We found that BAAS is feasible to impelement in daily practice, and found numerous improvements to enhance the quality of BAAS. Next step is to test the BAAS care pathway on effectiveness
