The PPA is keen to provide a space for members to share different experiences - living well with, or supporting people in pain.
PhD student and NHS Physiotherapist James Watson shares his clinically relevant research findings on pain neuroscience education in chronic musculoskeletal pain in this blog. The original paper can be accessed here.
The Living Well with Pain blog is written by Tina, who lives with a persistent pain condition. Everyone will experience pain differently and although it affects people in different ways, it may be helpful to read about one person's experience and gain an insight that may help the people you work with.
PPA Member, Greg Booth shares his experience of a Health Education England Internship, at the start of his clinical research career.
The Physio Matters Podcast recently featured episodes with Diarmuid Denneney (PPA Chair, discussing psychologically informed practice), Tom Jesson (on radicular pain, radiculopathy and sciatica) Dr John Launer (on narrative based medicine) and Joletta Belton (discussing her story with pain). The Patient Matters Podcast also has excellent episodes including with Christine (PPA Patient Representative) with an extra segment.
The Healing Pain Podcast has also had some interesting episodes lately. Professor Cormac Ryan (co-editor in chief of the PPA journal Pain and Rehabilitation) joined presenter Dr Joe Tatta to discuss partial reconceptualisation of pain. Sarah Wilson (previous PPA Chair) discussed her career and evolution of her practice. The episode 'Intgrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy into physiotherapist practice' is well worth a listen.
All podcasts are available from the usual podcast apps and websites.
