Descriptif du cours

(pour l’instant nous ne disposons pas encore du descriptif en français, mais le cours aura bien lieu en français et les scripts de cours remis au participants seront également en français)

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 the NOI teams around the world, cutting edge pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all. Participants will be taken through the latest knowledge of tissue, nerve, brain and stress effects on pain and movement.

Explaining modern neuroscience to patients is an evidence based strategy which can change pain and stress behaviours. Explaining pain is a two way process – the pain patterns, metaphors and stories from the patient’s viewpoint need reasoned analysis and are critical to meeting sufferers at their story.

We know more about pain in the last ten years than in the thousand years before and we are increasingly providing answers to “why do I hurt the way I do” and “what can I do about it”. 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.

Decades of research and clinical experience have now been synthesised in the next step of the Explain Pain revolution – The Protectometer. A handbook for patients, the Protectometer allows a person and their clinician to map out their pain experience, understand all the many factors that affect it, and develop a tailored therapeutic education and
treatment programme.

This therapy works – 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.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence, always challenging, and with the introduction of the Protectometer, you will come away with the most impressive therapeutic tool set ever.

1. Provide current knowledge about pain and stress biology, in a healthy group learning environment
2. Deliver a health education framework based on conceptual change theory and practice
3. Position Explain Pain as an evidence based fundamental core of pain treatment
4. Introduce Explain Pain narratives and the clinical reasoning process for targeted delivery
5. Teach novel, reasoned educational and multimodal treatment strategies based on the Protectometer
6. Inspire and engender realistic hope for health care providers, their patients and all stakeholders for improved pain treatment outcomes
