<h2>Biography</h2><p>Jonathan is a Lecturer with research expertise in physiotherapy having worked for the past 14 years in the Musculoskeletal Clinical Trials Unit at Keele University, UK. His research focus combines his clinical physiotherapy interest and epidemiological training to increase the evidence for primary care physiotherapy interventions and produce practical tools for use in clinical practice. He is best known for his contribution to back pain research through the STarT Back screening tool and the STarT Back trial which demonstrated favourable outcomes for a stratified care approach for patients with low back pain (published in the Lancet). He is the principal investigator for a new clinical trial to investigate if stratified care can be extended for use among other musculoskeletal conditions and is separately leading research to develop and validate a new musculoskeletal patient reported outcome measure (M-PROM). He sits as the research representative on the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) UK Governing Council and Scientific Funding Award Panel. His research is published in 40 peer-reviewed papers including high impact journals (e.g. Lancet, British Medical Journal), and he has been involved in the development of national guidelines for low back pain (Map of Medicine) and whiplash (CSP). He has contributed to over £4 million in grants from national and international funders (including the NIHR UK, PCORI in USA, and Arthritis Research UK) and has supervised 2 PhD students.</p>
