The challenge of successfully managing persistent pain can be one of the most daunting for both clinicians and people in pain who 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 make sense and overcome their pain. It provides a range of practical applications and innovative learning methods to take into your clinic for immediate results. The course content blends a wide range of contemporary evidence from both educational and healthcare literature.
Know Pain courses have been taught in over ten countries and have provided a wide range of clinicians around the world with practical pain education skills.

This 2-day workshop is relevant to anyone who works with people in pain. It uses evidence-based educational methods to explore therapeutic neuroscience education from both clinical and educational perspectives. You will also learn how to apply these teaching skills within your practice setting in order to optimise your patient’s learning experience. Patient education forms a significant component of modern healthcare, yet most clinicians have a limited toolkit. To help people make sense of their pain, we must first learn to teach.
