APS 2019 Pre-Conference Workshop: Physiotherapy in Pain Management
The Science and Art of Patient Communication.
So much of our clinical interaction hinges on the ability to communicate. Whether it be to educate, reassure, conduct a subjective examination or just simply understand what is going on for a patient, knowing how to listen and respond in productive ways is crucial. This workshop will provide an overview of theories of communication in different patient population groups, and it will also give examples of the difference between effective communication and poor/harmful communications. The workshop will be highly interactive, and will provide attendees with opportunities to practice skills that will be immediately beneficial in clinical situations.
