Translating pain neuroscience into clinical practice
Have you ever felt puzzled by a complex presentation? Know that pain is influenced by multiple factors but not quite sure how and what to do about it? This lecture takes you through core neurobiological processes involved in pain and how multi-dimensional inputs (peripheral, emotional, cognitive, neuro-immune-endocrine systems) come together to influence the pain experience. Practical tips on assessment and integrating information from different aspects of a person’s health are included to improve your clinical care.
