AEP Case Conference

Do you want to learn more about pain management?

Join our upcoming AEP Case Conference
AEP Case Conferences are online Learning activity discussions designed to support AEPs build confidence in clinical practice. They aim to provide an opportunity for a small group of AEPs to discuss best practice approaches for a specific client (case). 

What is covered?
Two expert AEPs, Dr. John Booth and Aidan Cashin will facilitate a small group discussion for a workers compensation client with chronic lower back pain. We will discuss how to approach each stage of a client’s journey – from referral, assessment, design of intervention and delivery to monitoring, review and reporting. 

How can AEPs benefit?
• Identify the most appropriate and relevant options for assessment and exercise prescription
• Understand the application of clinical reasoning 
• Understand how to best manage client expectations and referrer obligations
• Opportunity to ask the experts questions, seek feedback on current practice and gain confidence in treating clients with pain.
