Biopsychosocial: It's More Than Just a Buzzword
This complimentary online course by Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) is a call to change your practice. Stop, and really take a hard look at your practice of treating pain. Is it complicit with the current research and knowledge, or are you stuck in a model that is outdated and doesn’t serve us or our population well.
1. To move beyond “talking” about a biopsychosocial model of care towards truly incorporating this model into your practice
2. To commit to understanding the pain system as well as you understand biomechanics and tissue pathology
3. To utilize a framework that accounts for a sensitized nervous system as well as a solid understanding of mechanical pain
This course is open to all healthcare professionals.
