Explain Pain Applications: Clinical discussions on CRPS is a new course offered as an extension to our online EP course.

This course will focus on the management of multiple complex clinical cases related to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

We will explore concepts covered in Explain Pain (EP) and Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) as applied to the real-world clinical setting and integrated with other concurrent treatments within a holistic clinical care approach.

The course will include reflections on our clinical reasoning for past, present and future patients/clients with ongoing pain states, emphasizing the common impairments and participation restrictions associated with CRPS.

This course will use various learning strategies, including group discussion, short didactic lectures, experiential activities, practice, and self-reflection.


You must have completed a NOI Explain Pain course in the last 5 years.
