About Explain Pain Courses


  • To increase your knowledge of pain biology
  • To increase your ability to integrate this into your assessment & management of anyone in pain
  • To demonstrate that the biology of pain is both intuitively sensible and terrifically interesting


The first half of the course is primarily lecture format and focuses on translating the substantial developments in modern pain science into clinically-friendly language and bite-size concepts.

The second part focuses on modern understandings of how we can get people to reconceptualise their pain, introducing participants to the conceptual change pathway, from metaphors and stories to biological concepts and functional and management implications.

Course preparation

There is no pre-course preparation needed.


This course is very relevant to any clinician who treats people in pain.
