The challenge of successfully managing persistent pain can be one of the most daunting for both clinicians and sufferers. Patients are often frustrated after failed short-term interventions. 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 using a variety of practical learning methods to help your patients understand their pain. It provides a range of practical applications and methods to take into 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 TNE 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.
