Class overview

Welcome to my Masterclass – ‘Pain – a guide for clinicians’. In this class I will guide you through the interview, reasoning and planning of therapy for patients suffering from pain. Although the focus is on chronic primary pain, the principles may equally be applied to all other pain conditions.

The Masterclass covers topics ranging from the meaning of pain, what you must know about pain, and assessment of complex pain. It will ultimately leave you better equipped to assess and treat patients with painful conditions.

The meaning of pain

In this module I walk you through some of the key ideas in the communication with the patient about pain.

Furthermore, this module will give you some of the metaphors that I use in my clinical work as well as the context in which I use them.
