In a world experiencing an epidemic of chronic pain and increasing evidence of the failure of synthetic drugs, simple but extremely powerful educational tools can effectively target the natural pain treatment systems within us all.
Knowledge is power. In the new series of Explain Pain courses delivered by NOI instructors around the world, contemporary pain sciences are made accessible and understandable for all.
We know more about pain in the last twenty years than in the thousand years before and it’s all providing answers to “why do I hurt the way I do” and “what can I do about it”. The knowledge is applicable to young and old, from back pain to hemiplegia and general aching to the complexities of phantom pain and complex regional pain syndrome.
Explain Pain works to reduce catastrophisation and negative pain beliefs and when combined with active treatment, reduces pain and enhances return to work and play. Explain Pain has no side effects, is available around the clock, and you can share the knowledge and strategies with others.
Don’t miss this opportunity. NOI Explain Pain courses are fun, intellectually stimulating, based on evidence, always challenging, and integrate the Explain Pain ecosystem of Explain Pain, The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer, and Explain Pain Supercharged. You will come away with the most impressive therapeutic tool set ever!
A strength of the Explain Pain course is that participants come from many professions, so come with an open mind.

This course is open to:
Health professionals working with patients or clients in acute and chronic pain and stress states.
By the end of this course, participants will have the following:
- evaluate conceptualizations of pain for use with people suffering from persistent pain.
- analyze biopsychosocial factors involved in a patient’s persistent pain experience through use of the protectometer, DIMs, SIMs or other like tools
- evaluate potentially relevant target concepts for exploration with specific patients with persistent pain
- apply appropriate metaphors, narratives, and experiential tools to specific patient scenarios
- describe neuroimmune mechanism that can influence nociceptive processing and/or pain experiences
- identify ways to engage with people to help them reconceptualize their pain
- develop an initial plan of care, including elements of Explain Pain integrated with other appropriate interventions, for complex patient scenarios
