Managing musculoskeletal pain can be challenging to both the person in pain and their healthcare professionals. Several bio-psycho-social factors interact to produce a unique, individualized pain presentation. To appropriately screen, identify, and direct management to these factors within a clinical consultation can be a challenging process, and may require a multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary approach.
The Musculoskeletal Clinical Translation Framework outlines different elements that may influence the development, maintenance or resolution of a musculoskeletal pain disorder. This framework acknowledges the multidimensional nature of pain, disability and associated behaviours in individuals with musculoskeletal pain. The framework has been designed to better enable health care professionals to examine, interpret and implement targeted management for people with musculoskeletal pain based on contemporary evidence and theoretical models and using a common clinical language – to help you to help others.
Two local clinical vignettes and the application of the framework will be discussed by our invited speaker and local co-speakers in this webinar.
