Register online by Aug 14, 2018
Presenters: Cara Kircher and Bronwen Moore
Pain is common following a brain injury: up to 70% of brain injury survivors have persistent pain. Pain can be a significant barrier to function and progress towards treatment goals. Research shows that pain self-management education can be an effective intervention. However, clients with a brain injury can have unique learning needs related to cognitive impairments and the neurological aspects of their pain. This webinar will include an overview of research about pain concerns among clients with brain injury, evidence supporting the value of pain self-management education, best practice approaches for teaching pain self-management, and take-home principles for your practice.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
Discuss research related to persistent pain, brain injury and self-management.
Apply best practice principles for pain self-management education in their practice.
Draw on a list of helpful resources for pain management education.
