The Physiotherapy Association of BC in collaboration with PainBC and UBC Continuing Professional Development will be hosting Dr. Stanton for an evening lecture - 7 Pain Discoveries that will Change your Life.
We will be discussing some recent discoveries in the field of pain neuroscience that have the potential to change how we treat our patients in pain. Here is a brief description:
This presentation will discuss 7 key findings about pain and how we should treat it, informed by advances made in pain neuroscience research over the past decade. It will provide a contemporary view of the role and function of pain, with emphasis on examples that can be used clinically to convey difficult or challenging concepts to patients. Last, it will provide guidance on suggested treatment strategies for people with persistent pain, including evidence supporting the use of pain education as an integral part of multidisciplinary treatment.
This lecture is open to all health professionals.
