Who will Benefit: All professionals working with patients or clients in acute or chronic pain and stress states e.g. Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Doctors, Psychologists and Rehabilitation Counsellors. Course Description: In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs; simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all. Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by NOI teams around the world, cutting edge pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all. The sciences are turned into metaphor and descriptive narratives, all on a framework of conceptual change science and the philosophy of emergence. Explaining pain is a two way process â€“ the pain patterns, metaphors and stories from the patientâ€™s viewpoint need reasoned analysis and are critical to meeting sufferers at their story. We now know more about pain in the last ten years than in the thousand years before and itâ€™s all increasingly providing answers to â€œwhy do I hurt the way I doâ€ and â€œwhat can I do about itâ€. The knowledge is applicable to the young and the old, from back pain to hemiplegia, general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome. This therapy works â€“ there are no side effects, it is available around the clock, it continues to improve and you can share it with others. These are exciting days for neuroscience, but it must be made exciting for sufferers as well. Donâ€™t miss this unique opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence, always challenging, and you will come away with the most impressive therapeutic tool set ever â€“ your words. The NOI Explain Pain course is based on David Butler and Lorimer Moseley's book Explain Pain Second Edition. Course Aims: • To expand the clinical framework of rehabilitation via the paradigms of neuromatrix and pain mechanisms. • To teach biologically based pain management skills under a framework of the sciences of clinical reasoning and evidence from clinical trials, neurobiology and education research. • To reconceptualise pain in terms of modern neuroscience and philosophy. • To stimulate an urgent reappraisal of current thinking in rehabilitation, with benefits for all stakeholders in clinical outcomes - the patient, the therapist, the referrer and the payer. • To teach the core pain management skills of neuroscience education.
