dc.description.abstractThe project was designed as a retrospective service evaluation using audit to assess the identification and documentation of red flags in initial assessment of patients with low back pain. Firstly, the documentation of 11 predetermined red flags was assessed. Secondly, the documentation of relevant additional information was assessed and finally, compliance with local policy to highlight positive red flag findings in the designated area on the paperwork was examined. The documentation for the majority of red flags was high, however, clear gaps were identified. Additionally, there was no evidence of further clinical consideration of positive red flags during the diagnostic process. Possible factors influencing red flag documentation are discussed and suggestions are provided to improve recording and response to clinical indicators of malignancy.en_US
