Aims: Low Back Pain (LBP) is a serious and prevalent health problem, especially worldwide.  This study evaluated the impact of an interventional program on promoting the knowledge,  attitude and practice among a clinical worker to prevent low back pain in Lorestan hospitals, 
Iran.
Method and Materials: in this interventional study, 80 clinical workers who were working  in the two hospitals of Lorestan province in Iran, were divided randomly into an intervention  (N=40) and control (N=40) group.  The intervention group took part in the itervenional program while the control group received no  intervention. The demographic questionnaire and a researcher - made questionnaire were used.
Findings: In all 40 clinical workers in each group of intervention with mean age of 33.18±6.025  years and control group with mean age of 31.40± 6.732 years took part in the study. The  mean scores of knowledge, in the control group versus intervention group, immediately after 
intervention, 3-, and 6 - months follow-up were 13.00±1.79 vs 13.28 ±2.21, 13.03±2.15 vs  14.93±1.28, and 13.03±2.15 vs 14.38±1.67 respectively which were significant in two time points of 3- and 6- month follow ups (P<0.05) . Regarding, the mean scores of attitude the scores of control versus intervention group were 39.386.45± vs 40.136.86±, 39.55±6.11vs 43.98±4.81, and 39.43±5.64 vs 43.60±5.74, respectively; and for behavior the scores in control vs intervention group were 16.96±6.90 vs 15.05±4.52; 16.05± 4.5 vs 18.35±5.30, and 16.00±4.60 vs 18.13±4.80, respectively. 
Conclusions: This study showed that the interventional program is an effective intervention  to promote preventive behavior of LBP in clinical workers.
