This intensive instructional and skills course will review contemporary theories for the
pathogenesis of complex regional pain syndrome, and the contributions of both
peripheral and central nervous system. We will link assessment and intervention to the
known mechanisms, to inform tailored and evidence-informed assessment and treatment
in the hand therapy context. Participants will have the opportunity to practice both
assessment and treatment strategies. The goal of this course is to provide therapists with
the knowledge and skill to provide tailored, evidence-based care for persons with
complex regional pain syndrome.

In Konkretem:

Instruction on pain mechanisms

Review of theory-informed approchroches to pain rehabilitation in hand therapy

Overview and practice of assessments for pain and disability, including psychophysical testing and patient-reported outcomes

Instruction and practice on interventions for complex regional pain syndrome
