What is it?
This video (from GP Access and Hunter Integrated Pain Service, Australia) is a patient education video about chronic pain that presents current research in a way that is easy to understand. The video touches on tissue healing timelines, nervous system hypersensitivity, identifying contributors to pain, and how to (and how not to!) address chronic pain.
Educating patients about chronic pain can be difficult, but research tells us that pain education is an effective intervention for patients experiencing chronic pain. This evidence-based, easy to understand resource provides a helpful starting point for discussing this topic with patients.
