This 2 day workshop for GPs and Health Professionals aims to provide participants with an inter-professional learning opportunity to better manage patients with persistent pain.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
“Making Sense of Pain” is an inter-professional pain management workshop designed specifically for health professionals, and delivered in an informal and interactive setting.

  • Provides you with the ‘What’: Information about evidence-based management of people experiencing chronic pain; as well as the ‘How to’: Putting the information into practice.
  • Introduces the important concepts of inter-subjectivity and “third space” engagement and stigma, as well as considering different ways to reframe the experience of pain.
  • Assists you to improve interactions with patients experiencing pain to result in more positive outcomes for both parties.
  • Provides you with the opportunity to interact with “Pain Champions”, real people with lived experience of chronic pain.
  • Encourages you to reflect on your beliefs and attitudes to people experiencing pain. Reflective decision making is a core element in clinical reasoning.
