The challenge of successfully managing persistent pain can be one of the most daunting for both clinicians and patients. Patients are often frustrated after failed short-term interventions and can be left feeling vulnerable as a result of provocative language, low confidence, mixed messages, confusion and helplessness.
It is often difficult to understand and explain high and prolonged levels of pain where a traditional tissue based cause is lacking. This course explores a cutting edge, patient centered approach, applying clinical reasoning and critical thinking skills and using a variety of experiential learning methods to help your patients understand their pain. It also discusses areas of the ACC pain service requirements such as ePPOC, and recognizing areas of an Interdisciplinary approach. Finally, it provides a range of practical applications and methods to take into (or outside) your clinic and immediately apply with your patients. The course content blends a wide range of contemporary evidence from both educational and healthcare literature.
This introductory 2-day workshop is relevant to anyone who works with people in pain. It uses evidence-based educational methods to explore Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) from both clinical and educational perspectives. You will also learn how to apply these teaching skills within your practice setting. Patient education forms a significant component of modern healthcare, yet most clinicians have a limited toolkit. To educate people about their pain, we must first learn to teach.
