Clinical Education: Positive Engagement with Patients in Pain, JURIEN BAY

Pain management is currently undergoing a quiet revolution. Medicines and interventional techniques are limited in their effectiveness and are being replaced by self-management strategies emphasising whole person engagement.

GPs and Health Professionals are invited to attend a clinical education seminar in Jurien Bay, presented by Ms Melanie Galbraith, APA Pain Physiotherapist.

The activity aims to provide information on the interdisciplinary management of persistent pain, highlighting: 1) the importance of clinical engagement in patient care; 2) sound ethical discourse between clinician and patient; and 3) the benefits of inter-professional involvement.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe and apply strategies to help validate the patient’s experience of pain.
  • Apply up to date evidence to inform patients about the mechanisms and influence of pain, beyond tissue level response.
  • Identify the possible consequences of diagnostic uncertainty for clinicians and patients.
  • Describe the importance of patient-clinician engagement in determining clinical outcomes.
  • Explain the concept of working in the inter-subjective “third” space.
