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 15 countries and have provided a wide range of clinicians around the world with practical pain education skills. Feedback from over 700 healthcare professionals who have attended Know Pain courses has shown that 100% would recommend a Know Pain course to their colleagues. 95% of people strongly agreed that Know Pain had equipped them with practical skills to help people in pain.
