We're using a "flipped classroom" delivery method. The presentation has been pre-recorded to allow the learner time to review it and pose questions prior to the live webinar Q and A on March 16th. The link is provided in the resources area once you purchase the course.

In order to prepare for the Live Webinar, you must review the content in advance.

On the day of the webinar, the recording will NOT be replayed, the presenter will provide a brief overview of the content and respond to questions from participants using the chat function. This Q and A session will be approximately 1 hour in length and it will be recorded for anyone who cannot attend live.

Session Description:

Musculoskeletal pain is one of the most common reasons to seek healthcare and failure to understand its nature and complexity can lead to continued suffering of those we treat. The individual training to be a physical therapist or the practicing physical therapist can grow frustrated with pain management options because traditional instruction falls short on providing an adequate understanding of pain. The American Physical Therapy Association’s #ChoosePT campaign provides direction and resources for physical therapists and patients interested in safe chronic pain management. However, before physical therapists are seen as the ideal providers for musculoskeletal pain there is a need for gaining a broader understanding of pain. The overall goal of this webinar is to provide content that allows the learner to gain a “transformed understanding” of pain that is consistent with Institute of Medicine guidelines. Webinar content will follow a “Top 10” format, emphasize practice implications, and use musculoskeletal pain examples from selected studies reported in the peer-review literature.
