134517 - Let's talk about back pain

  • : Online

An education event recorded for online viewing, to provide an update for GP’s on models of pain, yellow flags, and patient communication around pain.

Relevance to General Practice

There is a growing consensus that psychosocial factors, known as “yellow flags” play an important role at early stages of lower back pain, and clinicians should focus on assessing these factors and addressing them. Communication processes between the patient and GP can be critical in providing reassurance and explaining causes of pain. It is important that this opportunity is used to positively influence attitudes and beliefs. 
This activity provides an update for GPs on models of pain, yellow flags, and patient communication around pain.

Learning outcomes
  • Identify factors that may amplify pain, beyond the nociceptive stimulus itself
  • List some examples of helpful and detrimental phrases used when describing back pain
  • Develop examples for patient communication to explain why the mismatch between tissue damage and the experience of pain occurs
