APA Pain Physiotherapy Level 1 course

The APA Pain Physiotherapy Level 1 is a foundational course aimed at the best competency level an immediately graduated Physiotherapist might have achieved.  This course is also aimed at Physiotherapists who are developing their skills in pain management or those who have had little clinical exposure to patients with varied pain conditions.

Once you have completed the Better Pain Management modules, there are two ways to complete the APA Pain Physiotherapy Level 1 course - blended or virtual: 

  • attending a face-to-face classroom course (Part A & B)
