Whiplash (Centre of National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine)

Whiplash is an evidence based information resource designed to enhance rehabilitation outcomes for people with whiplash through the provision of high quality information.

The University of Queensland's (UQ) Centre of National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine (CONROD – based in the UQ Herston School of Medicine) and the NHMRC Centre of Clinical Research Excellence in Spinal Pain, Injury and Health (CCRE Spine) have combined resources to establish the Whiplash evidence based information resource – a resource providing evidence based information to the general public and health care professionals about whiplash and its management.

The site provides summaries of current evidence for and against specific whiplash treatments compiled by the Centre for Allied Health Evidence (CAHE) and will be continually updated by UQ research staff to enable best practice outcomes.

Funding for Whiplash is provided by a grant to the Centre of National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine (CONROD) University of Queensland from the Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) Queensland, and by a grant to the Centre of Clinical Research Excellence in Spinal Health (CCRE Spine) by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Australia.
