CANADIAN Pain Toolkit Online Workshop Monday 7th March - Friday 11th March 2022

- Monday - Friday. 2.5hrs a day. From 9am - 11.30am British Columbia time
Cost of the workshop:
Donation only - We are asking for donations as we are seeing if this concept is useful and creates change in participants. All coaches are giving their time for free but we have overheads to make the workshops happen.
Objectives of the workshop
The main objective of workshops is to provide a comprehensive learning platform for people living with persistent pain. Give you the tools to move forward and start living again with some support.
Who runs the workshop
The workshops are run by Coaches Pete Moore with 25yrs experience of self-managing his pain, Mary Wing with 18yrs experience and Chartered Physiotherapist Katie Knapton, who has 30yrs plus supporting people with persistent pain.
What does supported self-management mean?
We use the term ‘supported self-management’ to mean the ways that health and social care services encourage, support and re-empower people to manage their persistent pain with the help and support of their healthcare worker. Here is a short video, which explains really well. Click here
What happens in the workshops
The workshop is run at a pace to suit all participants and there is plenty on interaction. In other words, it’s not a sit and listen workshop. There will be fun times as well and the opportunity to help realise and set your own goals.
After the workshop has finished all participants will be able to join Pain Toolkit Private Facebook support group. Only people who have attended the 5-day workshop will be able to join. Pete, Katie and Mary will also be available and offer extra support if needed. We will also be posting pain self-management information on the Facebook page.
The only commitment we ask is that participants attend all five days and be willing to fill out evaluation forms after the workshop and thereafter at 3mths, 6mths and 12mths so we can evaluate how useful the workshops have been for participants.
