This webinar is an introduction to Pain Science in the clinic. Alison explores what that means for clinicians treating patients with chronic and acute pain. This webinar will give clinicians a better idea of how to use the biopsychosocial method in their practice. This is an ever evolving area of research and we hope to introduce the implementation of this research to benefit individual and community based health outcomes.
About Alison Sim
Alison Sim has a keen interest in educating health professionals about the latest science surrounding pain, especially pain that hangs around – chronic or persisting pain.
Pain science can be quite disheartening as a topic – there are no magic bullets or quick fixes. The science can sometimes paint a bleak picture of poor outcomes for any single modality approach. This makes engaging with this material difficult and the result is that practitioners might choose to avoid exploring the material at all. Alison’s seminars and workshops aim to investigate the approaches that have a strong evidence base of proven results and demonstrate how they can be applied in clinical practice. This means better outcomes for your clients and patients.
Alison qualified as an osteopath in 2001. She has a Masters of Pain Management from Sydney University Medical School and Royal North Shore Pain Management Research Institute. She has lectured at Australian Catholic University, Victoria University, RMIT and George Fox University in a variety of science and clinical subjects. She has also worked as part of the teaching team at Deakin University Medical School and is currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
