  • Ref Students of AAOMPT Blog: Pain Videos

    The Student Special Interest Group (SSIG) of AAOMPT has a four part series on pain in which they shared 4 very relevant videos relating to pain, understanding pain, and educating people about pain. These are all videos that have been shared through various mediums before, and many of you will be familiar. You can access them below:

    Part 1
    Part 2
    Part 3
    Part 4


    They now have posed a few questions about physical therapist student education and patient education. Appears they would like to start a discussion, and I am interested to see if people participate. I think it is exciting that a student group is sharing these resources, and attempting to engage the profession at large about pain. Some may not agree, but I see this as a small act that may (hopefully) signify important change.

    Pain Discussion

    Students: Is pain management being taught in your education? If so, how is this concept being taught? As a future physical therapist, do you believe we should have a better understanding of pain prior to graduating?

    Practitioners: How often are you implementing pain education into your practice? Should pain management be a priority in the DPT curriculum? Is pain management only necessary for "chronic" or "persistent" pain patients, or do you believe that it may be adventitious to incorporate some of these concepts with any patient who is in pain?
    I will be commenting at some point.

      Kyle,

      I bookmarked this thread, and I intend to get involved in the discussion. Thanks for the bump to remind me. (The new format here for finding recent threads has me a little out of sync).

        You are welcome. I am waiting for more students and PT's to comment before I comment. I am curious to see how the discussion evolves.

              Another great student endeavor. The students at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Physical Therapy Program participate in the Marquette Challenge which raises money for The Foundation for Physical Therapy.

              In March 2013, Steven George will be giving a lecture entitled “Update on Musculoskeletal Pain for Practicing Clinicians”. Cost $130. All proceeds donated to the foundation.

              This is fantastic news and I will be going!

                  NikkiReo,
                  I removed your link because we don't know who you are, and there's a high likelihood that this is spam.

                  You're welcome to introduce yourself in the Welcome Forum, and then if you have something of interest to the board of a non-spam nature, we'll be more than happy to take a look.

                      Another nice effort by a current DPT Student

                      Maybe the future is brighter than we anticipate? Is change happening?

                        Student Change

                        Hello Kyle, et al
                        First, thanks for the shout-out.
                        Second, this is my first post on SomaSimple having stalked it for a year+.
                        Third, I believe that the "hacking" of the DPT curriculum is where the change is happening quickest. Here and other blogs, social media exposure, etc.

                        As students our focus is to pass the National Boards. I think there is a tough game to play as a student. We are trying to become the best we can, while our study standards are to prove to the governing body that we are safe and competent (which we should be, no doubt). Perhaps that makes sense. It is easier to define what not to do to a patient, vs what is the best thing to do.

                        I might argue that not understanding pain and the power of communication (ex: controlling nocebo statements, etc) is 'what not to do'... but perhaps that is a bias.
