The STarT Back training team at the School of Medicine, Keele University have run training courses for several years. There are two elements to becoming proficient in the STarT Back approach: background theory behind the concept of targeting and screening treatment, and ongoing reflective learning based in the healthcare workplace of each individual clinician.

It is important to realise that becoming proficient in the STarTBack Approach involves a number of steps:

1- Learning needs assessment – shape education to the needs of the individual

2- Educational materials – knowledge that underpins the SB approach

3- Peer-based support groups – moving from knowledge to practice

4- Mentorship – supporting clinicians as they develop

5- Reflection – feedback and response to areas that might be improved
