This is the first in a three-lecture series that Carolyn Vandyken did as the Keynote speaker for the National Conference on Incontinence in Australia in October 2020.  These lectures were delivered in pre-recorded fashion because of the COVID-19 pandemic; the Continence Foundation of Australia has graciously given us permission to re-air these lectures on Embodia Academy.

Overview of this Free Online Course

In 2021, we know that persistent pain is a complex problem but it doesn't have to be complicated.  We need a systematic way to identify and address sensitization so that the profile of each patient can be individually managed effectively.  Based on Dr. Sajid's primary care article titled RELIEF: A Practical Primary Care Approach to Chronic Pain, Carolyn reviews the key parameters of assessing and treating persistent musculoskeletal pain.  This includes:
R= Rule out Red flags
E= Educate about pain early on
L= Limit Imaging
I= Introduce Goals
E= Exercise and Movement
F= (F)Pharmacology
Join her as she highlights this simple yet effective approach to persistent pain.
