Webinar is an online process of gathering and presenting the information with large viewers around the world. We observed that there is lack of research on webinar in medical field. The aim of this study was to find the effect of webinar based teaching learning program on the attitude of physiotherapists, quality of treatment and satisfaction of patients with chronic low back pain. This is an experimental design. In phase-1, (n = 92) physiotherapists were selected and their attitude was measured before and after attending the 3 day webinar on theoretical and practical approaches of low back pain. In phase 2, according to the selection criteria, (n = 30) the subjects with low back pain were recruited. They were divided into two groups (webinar training group and non-training group) and they were treated by trained and non-trained physiotherapists for four weeks. The health-related quality of life and satisfaction of the patients were measured before and after the treatment. Phase-1 analysis shows significant difference between the pre and post values (p≤0.05) in physiotherapy attitude. In phase-2, 4 weeks after treatment, substantial improvement was shown in quality of life and satisfaction of the patients (p≤0.05). Greater evidence of improvement in quality of life and satisfaction of patients was noted in webinar training group than non-training group. There were wide beneficial effects of webinar based training on behavioral attributes in participant’s attitude and it reflects positive effects on quality of life and satisfaction of the patients with chronic low back pain.
