About The Course

The challenge of successfully managing persistent pain can be one of the most daunting for both clinicians and people in pain who are often frustrated after failed short-term interventions. It is often difficult to understand and explain high and prolonged levels of pain where a traditional tissue-based cause is lacking. 

This course explores a cutting-edge, patient-centered approach using a variety of practical learning methods to help your patients better understand and manage their pain. It provides a range of practical applications and innovative learning methods to take into your clinic for immediate results.

The course content blends a wide range of contemporary evidence from both educational and healthcare literature. 

Know Pain courses have been taught in over fifteen countries and have provided a wide range of clinicians around the world with practical pain education skills. Feedback from over 700 healthcare professionals who have attended Know Pain courses has shown that 100% would recommend a Know Pain course to their colleagues. 95% of people strongly agreed that Know Pain had equipped them with practical skills to help people in pain.


Who Is This Course For?

This online course is relevant to anyone who works with people in pain. It uses evidence-based educational methods to explore therapeutic neuroscience education from both clinical and educational perspectives.

You will also learn how to apply these teaching skills within your practice setting to optimize your patient’s learning experience.

Patient education forms a significant component of modern healthcare, yet most clinicians have a limited toolkit. 

To help people make sense of their pain, we must first learn to teach.
