Topical Concurrent Session 1D: Inter-disciplinary care: What do you do when nothing is working?
Chair: Mr Tim Austin, Camperdown Physiotherapy, NSW
Even when evidence-based treatments in an inter-disciplinary model of care are applied, a number of patients simply don’t get better. This is true in public and private settings, and it occurs regardless of whether the desired outcomes are pain relief, functional restoration or improvement in psychological functioning. This workshop is designed to be highly interactive, allowing attendees to explore and discuss the reasons why some patients don’t get better, and also what we should do about it. This workshop will present an overview of the rate of non-improvement with treatments, examine the specific areas of psychological and physical functioning, and allow a discussion of proposed approaches.
