Time to brush up on your chronic pain management skills? Feel like you need a better handle on some of the unknowns? Good news: our workshops are here to help.

Gone are the days of allied health professionals just focusing on one aspect of a patient’s recovery plan. It’s no secret that to get the best possible outcomes for each patient, we now need to take a much broader, biospychosocial view of each patient’s unique situation – in fact, we talked about this on the blog recently. The problem is, how do you learn about this stuff in a way that is relevant to the work that you do?

If you’ve signed up to the Innovative Rehab Newsletter you might have seen the news that this year, we’ve combined forces with Dr Pieter Rossouw (MClin Psych, PhD, MAPS, MCClin, QCA); a leading authority in the areas of neurobiology and neuropsychotherapy. Together with Dr Rossouw, Innovative Rehab’s Stephen McCrea (BAppSc (Physio), Cert. Hydro) and Rachel Kovacevic (BA, BSc (Hons), MPsych (Clin), MAPS) are getting set to deliver a series of practical workshops all around Australia, focusing on the neuroscience and treatment implications of working with the brain and persistent pain.

We’re excited and we’d love for you to join us!

Recently, Dr Rossouw asked us to co-author an article for his bi-monthly e-journal Neurospychotherapy in Australia. Entitled ‘Working With Chronic Pain – Making Treatment Count’  the article appears in the latest edition of the journal and highlights the importance of allied health professionals  up-skilling to incorporate multidisciplinary approaches to their repertoire of pain rehab management skills.

“Australia is one of the few countries with a National Pain Strategy – a document well worth reading for those seeking to understand this aspect of our current health system. The Strategy highlights gaps in training and service provision. For example, many health professionals in Australia still have little or no training in the effective treatment of chronic pain. Pain-specialised treatment services are typically poorly integrated with community-based treatment and many have waiting periods of more than a year”. You can read the full article here.

So if you feel like there are gaps in your knowledge and/or service provision that you would like to plug, sign up now for our upcoming workshop, THE BRAIN AND PERSISTENT PAIN: From Neuroscience to Practical Strategies for Treatment.

The two-day workshop will run in Melbourne on 18-19 July and will be rolled out across Australia from August through to December this year.
