This webinar will provide a summary of the present clinical knowledge for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Specifically, what is known about the causes of CRPS and the assessment methodology that is used to diagnosis CRPS. The session will discuss the difference between Type I and Type II CRPS and how the diagnostic criteria differs for these two conditions.
An overview of evidence based treatment for CRPS will be provided, which will include a discussion of contemporary pain science knowledge. Discussion of pain science will include concepts such as central sensitisation, descending inhibition and facilitation and associative learning. Last, a summary of the current research agenda for CRPS and how this might impact clinical practice.
The primary learning objectives include:
1) To have an increased understanding of the cause and the clinical presentation of people with CRPS.
2) To have increased knowledge of diagnostic criteria in CRPS (and increased confidence in providing a preliminary diagnosis of CRPS)
3) To understand the differences in the types of CRPS and the treatment ramifications of these differences.
4) To have improved knowledge of the evidence-based treatments that are currently available for CRPS.
5) To have an appreciation of the research direction for CRPS
How will this webinar enable participants to work occupationally with clients/patients?
This webinar will enable OT’s to interact with and treat people with CRPS in an evidence-based manner.
This webinar is suitable for: OT's only
