Overview

In this interprofessional module, participants will examine personal and cultural understandings of pain and the changes in understanding that have taken place in the last 60 years. This includes changes led by pain neuroscience that have taken the understanding from a biomedical tissue-based phenomenon to an understanding on neural pain mechanisms, to more biopsychosocial viewpoints. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their attitudes and beliefs and the influences and contexts shaped them. The module content reflects the section from the Interprofessional Pain Curriculum developed by the International Association for the Study of Pain, Multidimensional Nature of Pain.
