I've been asked to locate a patient education booklet titled The Back
Book, 1996, published  by The Stationary Office in the UK. This booklet
was apparently designed to accompany the British Clinical Guidelines for
the Management of Acute Low Back Pain, and a study using the booklet was
recently published in the journal Spine. After much searching, I was
able to locate a US agent for items published by The Stationary Office
- and learned a lot about UK government publishing! Before I pass
pricing info, etc. along to my patron, I want to make sure I haven't
overlooked a full text version on the Internet. I was able to locate the
full text of the clinical guidelines on the Royal College of General
Practitioners web site, but the patient education material didn't seem
to be there. Am I missing something? If so, I'm hoping our UK colleagues
can help me out.

Thank you in advance and have a nice day,
