About the webinar

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 rehabilitation to change provocative movement and cognitive behaviors that provoke and maintain pain.

This approach has been developed through a combination of synthesis of contemporary scientific literature and a body of original research led by Prof Peter O’Sullivan and a collaborative team of international researchers. 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 unique 2-day workshop outlines Peter O Sullivan’s classification model for the assessment and management of complex back pain disorders. The workshop is dynamic, interactive, and practical. It includes patient videos, clinical reasoning and equips physiotherapists to develop skills in diagnostics as well as the design of CFT interventions for specific disorders. Be prepared to change your beliefs about back pain if you sign up for this workshop.

Both days will have two parts of 4 hours of a lecture of Kieran, which will include a live patient assessment! Before the course, we will send you some preparation to do.
There will be 4 hours of pre-recorded material, making 12 hours in total of learning. 
Be aware of the two meeting moments on Saturday 15th and Saturday the 22nd of May.
The sessions will start at 8:15 AM CET on both Saturdays 15 and 22. The sessions will end at 12:15 PM CET.
