The course includes the topic of Pain by looking at the most current research and how we can use this information to our advantage to improve our outcomes, thereby improving the quality of life of our patients.
You will gain an understanding of DIM’s and SIM’s, how a patients’ thoughts can lead to imprecise perspectives pertaining to rehab, and why it s not just about what you do but how and what you say that impacts your clinical outcomes.
Case studies are presented which are intended to help you gain an understanding of the impact that pain, dysfunction, communication, therapists terminology and explanatory narratives play on a patients’ perspectives, thoughts, beliefs and expectations.
We will end the course reviewing the 7 Effects of Treatment, the Top 5 Questions patients want answered and reflecting on our actions moving forward.
