Have you found yourself left full of inspiration following an Explain Pain course?

We’ve been listening to your feedback and have developed this course based on what clinicians around the globe are asking for. This course focuses on deepening your conceptual understanding of pain and the human experience and translating that deep understanding into your clinical world – taking you further from knowing what, to knowing how. You will bring your clinical and theoretical expertise into the virtual classroom where together we will deconstruct real life case studies of complex pain presentations using Explain Pain principles. We won’t be just talking about pain education, you will be doing it, and receiving feedback and help from your peers.

By using a framework of the trusted Protectometer we will dig deep into the patient experience of pain, their world and perspectives, and how they exist under their current limitations.

In addition we hope you will generate valuable long term professional relationships beyond this formal teaching period. We will address sticky clinical conversations, resistance to change, and managing expectations (both of our own and our patients).


In order to attend Explain Pain Applications, you will need to be a health professional who has attended an Explain Pain course in the last 5 years, and who maintains and has deepened their interest in pain science and educational interventions.

We will be using an online platform to access a wider support community around the globe with the potential to access more varied experiential learning from your peers.


By the end of this course, participants will have:

  1. Explored the application of Explain Pain concepts for individuals experiencing complex, persistent pain states.
  2. Practiced developing treatment strategies for persistent pain that include educational approaches that are tailored to the individual.
  3. Developed the skills to flexibly address the dynamic clinical situation that persistent pain presents
  4. Delivered examples of tailored pain education components to their peers and received constructive feedback.
  5. Reflected on their own beliefs and approaches towards persistent pain and recognised the effect of these in clinical settings
  6. Identified opportunities for further personal growth and development in the treatment of problem pain states
