Instructor: Yannick Tousignant-Laflamme, pht, Ph.D, Université de Sherbrooke

Do you feel challenged by the management of patients with “complex” low back pain? Do you want to pull it all together and try to aim in the middle? If you want to enhance your clinical practice in order to integrate the most recent scientific evidence into your assessment procedures and treatment plan, this pragmatic workshop is for you.

Course will consist of a mixture of Interactive presentation and practical workshops- introducing the Pain and Disability Drivers management model and utilizing clinical cases accompanied by short theoretical blocks to facilitate discussion and reflection of participants regarding management options.

Learning objectives:
Following the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the relevance of the five domains of the model and identify the different drivers of pain and disability in cases of low back pain.
  2. Perform the appropriate physical examination procedures to determine the presence/absence of factors driving pain and disability
  3. Establish the clinical profile of the patient based on the relative contribution of elements from the different domains according to the pain and disability drivers management model.
  4. Develop and monitor a structured, evidence-based intervention plan focusing on the key elements driving pain and disability.
  5. Integrate into practice therapeutic techniques / strategies targeting cognitive-affective and contextual factors.
