Modern Patient Education introduces participants to some of the so-called “soft skills” of patient engagement as well as other aspects of treatment that can make for a more comprehensive treatment experience. Topics addressed include evidence based practice, modern pain science education, diaphragmatic breathing and mindfulness meditation, general exercise principles, sleep, and nutrition.
- Discuss the strengths and challenges of evidence-based practice
- Describe what the evidence demonstrates that people want out of a healthcare encounter
- Interpret pain and how to more effectively communicate its complexities to patients
- Recognize the power of words and both the negative and positive effects it can have on patient perception of disease and disability
- Identify sub-optimal breathing patterns and be able to effectively coach patients into improved breathing patterns
- Describe mindfulness meditation and how a session might go, and what the evidence is currently demonstrating for benefit for things such as chronic pain and stress
- Apply general exercise concepts to a wide variety of patients including those living with persistent pain.
- Discuss why sleep is such an important activity for recovery and both physical and mental/emotional health and what the downsides are to a regular lack of sleep.
