Instructor: Eric Purves, B.Sc, RMT
This one-day, in-person course will provide knowledge and practical skills for working with clients with chronic pain, and the opportunity for healthcare providers to build collaborative networks of practice. The course provides the opportunity to learn how modifications of traditional manual therapy practices can increase practice success, improve outcomes for people in pain and decrease practitioner stress when working with chronic pain clients. We will discuss and practice effective therapeutic pain management approaches and current theories of chronic pain, with a focus on the biopsychosocial framework for pain assessment and management.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Any healthcare professional interested in developing or enhancing sound clinical skills in the assessment and treatment of clients living with complex and persistent pain.
