Description

People with pain following stroke, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological problems are missing out on effective pain treatment. This group experience much more pain than the neurologically intact, compounding the already disabling effects of the neurological condition. This course will cover assessment and management strategies for this population, utilising strategies such as targeted neuroscience education, Graded Motor Imagery, sensory retraining, and graded exercise.

 On completion of this course, participants will:

  • be aware of the problem of pain in neurological populations, including the current professional disregard for the problem.
  • reconceptualise pain associated with neurological conditions based on modern pain science and the bioplasticity of homeostatic systems within a modern adaptable biopsychosocial framework.  
  •  possess chronic pain assessment and treatment strategies, including pain education, Graded Motor Imagery and sensory retraining.
  •  have the confidence to deliver and trial these strategies with people with neurological conditions.
  •  inspire and engender realistic hope for health care providers and their patients for improved pain treatment outcomes.

Brendon Haslam

Brendon lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he currently works clinically with people in chronic pain in private practise, working with people with complex pain states, while also having a university research fellowship investigating sensory retraining in stroke.  For many years he worked in  hospital rehabilitation settings, in both pain and neurological programs, and has been awarded titling by the Australian Physiotherapy Association in both disciplines of physiotherapy. His particular interest is in complex pain states for people with neurological deficits, and has undertaken additional training in numerous neurological treatment approaches.

Brendon initially trained as a physiotherapist in Adelaide, before then completing his Masters Neurological Physiotherapy in Melbourne.  He is currently in the final stages of his PhD at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, where his research aims to understand contributions towards chronic pain and identify potential targets for therapy in neurological populations.

He has been teaching at post graduate level since 2002 in areas of both neurological and pain rehabilitation, and joined the NOI stables in 2012.
