Taking pain science to the clinic



While there is evidence from high-quality clinical trials that pain science education has positive effects on pain, function, disability, healthcare utilisation, and psychological outcomes, it is less clear how pain science can and should be integrated within a clinical encounter. This interactive session will explore how we can take pain science to the clinical setting as part of a treatment for people with chronic pain. It will first briefly review pain science knowledge relevant to chronic pain. It will then discuss what a contemporary pain science informed assessment might include using knee osteoarthritis as an exemplar condition. It will then involve interactive discussion of a case study, including evaluating the relevance of pain science education, determining how this education could be undertaken (including consent), and brainstorming ways to individualise pain science content to the patient and to pair pain science with other interventions.
