Pain has become a hot topic in the physical therapy profession as the APTA has pushed the #ChoosePT campaign to promote physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) as front-line providers to deal with pain at multiple different stages. The problem with this initiative is that many PTs/PTAs do not feel confident, or at times comfortable discussing pain with their patients. While it is important to understand the science behind the pain experience, including identifying different types of pain; what is equally important is translating that knowledge into the clinic.

This course is designed to better clinicians' understanding of what pain is, including the understanding that it is an output produced by the pain (an emotion) rather than a sensation. This course is further designed to help providers understand the importance of discussing pain with their patients related to outcomes, as well as understand how to discuss pain with their patients using clinical examples that the patients can understand.

This webinar is approved for 1 CEU, 20S1036.
