Explain Pain Supercharged is for all health professionals treating pain. In this brand new book, Moseley & Butler apply their unique style to take the neuroimmune science of pain further and deeper.
The book will provide you with:
- Entirely original content
- Applicable education strategies
- Curriculum development
- Hundreds of ready to use clinical metaphors and therapeutic narratives
Supercharge your understanding and treatment of pain
Explain Pain Supercharged is jam-packed with everything you need to provide effective, memorable, evidence-based, individualised pain education and treatment.
Realign your thinking.
Theories govern much of our clinical behaviour. Learn to recognise and question your own theories, form solid theories and set up a reliable and methodical way of thinking.
Enrich your therapeutic narrative.
Metaphors colour and widen our language – but they can also guide our thoughts and beliefs. Recognise metaphors and learn to enrich them as part of your therapeutic narrative.
Supercharge your pain biology.
Dive headfirst into the intricacies of the somatosensory system including the role of all skin receptors, ion channels, nociceptors, neuroimmune coupling, inflammation, central sensitisation 2.0 and much more.
Develop your own accessible pain stories
A collection of therapeutic narratives translates complex science into digestible nuggets and novellas. Check out our stories, ready to be adapted and taken into the clinic tomorrow.
Tailor information to your learner.
Conceptual change science provides the key for lasting, effective education strategies to explain pain. Find out which level of misconception the learner holds and how to target your individual education to them.
Adapt and create new curriclum
Curriculum is the cornerstone of education. We’ve provided multiple in-depth, ready to use examples and we’ll also guide you through developing your own for special situations.
Where Explain Pain and The Explain Pain Handbook: Protectometer are specifically designed to help patients understand their personal pain experience, Explain Pain Supercharged is designed for students, researchers and clinicians who want to go deeper into the complex biology of pain.
It has been constructed as an up to date and highly practical text book that you can refer to over and over as you construct pain interventions. It expands your knowledge base as a clinician and helps you apply the complex concepts effectively in your everyday practice.
Explain Pain Supercharged is extensively cross referenced with Explain Pain and the Handbook so that you’ll be able to enrich the Explain Pain journey no matter where your patients are at.
Lorimer Moseley’s interests lie in the role of the brain and mind in chronic pain. He is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of South Australia and a Senior Principal Research Fellow at Neuroscience Research Australia.
David Butler is an educationalist, clinician and researcher. His professional love is devising ways to take the complex ‘gifts’ of neuroscience to students, clinicians and sufferers in ways that change their lives.
