Kieran O'Sullivan is one of the international researchers who worked intensively together with Prof. Peter O’Sullivan to develop the ‘Cognitive Functional Therapy (CFT) intervention. CFT is an approach to the management of pain disorders that considers factors across the biopsychosocial spectrum that contribute to the development and maintenance of a pain disorder. It provides a logical framework allowing skilled clinicians to both diagnose, triage, and target management where appropriate.
CFT integrates cognitive strategies and functional movement rehabilitation to reduce pain and disability. There is emerging evidence that the CFT approach provides better clinical outcomes than the current best clinical practice in the management of non-specific chronic spinal pain.
This will include the recordings of a unique 2-day workshop that is dynamic, interactive, and practical. It includes patient videos, and clinical reasoning and equips physiotherapists to develop skills in diagnostics as well as the design of CFT interventions for specific disorders. When you purchase the recordings, you will have access to 4 hours of online learning- including videos, podcasts, and interviews.
The course consists of 8 hours of learning, including a live patient assessment, with a critical reflection on the assessment using the CFT framework.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to;
- Apply contemporary pain mechanisms evidence to individual people with LBP
- Appreciate how diversity within the population of people with LBP can be managed flexibly, yet consistently
- Clinically reason using the CFT framework
- Observe and interrogate communication skills used with complex pain problems
- Critique cognitive, movement, and lifestyle components of rehabilitation with a view to applying them in their own practice
