MASTERING THE FIRST TWO CONSULTATIONS

A NEUROSCIENCE APPROACH

Do you carefully construct your first two clinical encounters to get the best possible outcome for your patients? Do you explain how your treatment works using words and concepts that are meaningful to your patients? Learn why a neuroscience approach to your patient communication is not only more effective, but is the new best-practice.

This intensive one-day seminar is entirely practical. It’s about getting all of the little things right each day. You’ll learn how to take a brain-based approach to every aspect of a patient interaction. Are your staff using the right words when they book in a patient for the first time? What are the most important words to use when first meeting a new patient? The latest neuroscience tells us that your influence upon a patient’s problem begins during the history. You must ask the right questions to reveal the individual education opportunities for every patient, and create immediate understanding. But what should you have achieved by the end of the history?

This seminar shall also walk you step-by-step through the examination process. The words, concepts and explanations that you use can either help or hinder. You must de-educate before you can re-educate. We'll look at what’s most important to demonstrate and document. How do you explain a working diagnosis? What words and concepts do you use when telling a patient what’s 'wrong' with them? When and why should you order imaging studies? How do you explain this to a patient?

There are so many important questions that you must answer. How does your treatment work and how much is needed? How do you have an effective informed consent conversation? We shall look at how to move from an older 'mechanical' model to a new 'brain-based neuroscience approach' that patients can instantly relate to. From 'damaged parts' to 'brain plasticity'. We’ll ensure that your words, actions and treatment all align with neuroscience best-practice.

UNDERSTANDING
THE LATEST IN NEUROSCIENCE AND COMMUNICATION
As a chiropractor your words can heal or harm; they can create instant understanding or they can reinforce unhelpful beliefs that prevent recovery. In this one-day intensive we're going to take your advanced clinical knowledge and translate it into empowering analogies and metaphors that will stick in your patients' mind and promote functional improvement. We'll look closely at the latest neuroscience and understand what it is telling us: that your adjustments are likely to be more effective when they come after the right words, concepts and explanations.
  1. AN ENTIRELY PRACTICAL PROGRAM
How do you integrate the latest concepts of pain neuroscience education (PNE) into daily practice? Which neuroscience ideas form the basis of a manual treatment framework for clinical practice? How can we construct the clinical encounter from day 1 to maximise our clinical outcomes? We need to de-educate the patient from beliefs and negative concepts that perpetuate their problem (ideas such as 'degeneration', 'damaged anatomy', and why their back keeps 'going out' etc). We then need to then re-educate the patient using modern pain neuroscience and plasticity concepts that promote a return to pain free movement, health and wellbeing.
  1. BEGIN WITH CLARITY
Why do most patients come to see you? It is usually for some sort of pain in their frame. But what exactly is pain and what determines its expression? What do we mean by 'brain plasticity' and what are the implications for your patients? Do you truly understand the neurology of spinal manipulation? How does an adjustment work? What are you aiming to achieve when you put your hands upon a patient? How do you conceptualise and communicate what you do? How can you position yourself with value and authority in the modern healthcare hierarchy?
  1. BEFORE THE INITIAL CONSULTATION
How do you construct an effective clinical encounter – one that maximises the context effect and utilises 'contextually aided recovery'? How does the look and feel of your office influence the therapeutic outcome? Have you formalised the explanation of your first visit protocol that is given by your staff. Why is the word 'diagnosis' critical to use from day one?
  1. THE INITIAL CONSULTATION & EXAMINATION
What should you have achieved by the end of the history-taking process? Why is it vital to uncover the patient's belief about what they think caused their pain? Why is it important to educate the patient as you go - to demonstrate reversible functional impairments? Why does research show that 'mechanical explanations' are associated with increased fear and sense of vulnerability [1] ? What is the role of imaging? If there is no difference in pathoanatomy after the pain has resolved, and function is better, then what has changed? How do you decide when to image, and what’s important to explain to the patient? Do you give your patients a formal working diagnosis? How do you explain 'usage-dependent plasticity' in the brain, 'movement malnutrition', enduring effects of injury, stress, cortical disorganisation, shrinkage of the central representation of body movement and function?

  1. EXPLAINING YOUR TREATMENT
This seminar will help you to master a simple and effective method for explaining the aims of your treatment. Research shows that Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) actually changes outcomes in lower back pain cases, when compared to the use of 'mechanical explanations' - even when exactly the same treatment is applied [2]. We will teach you how to use metaphors to meaningfully communicate, rather than inaccurate and outdated concepts such as bones 'in' and 'out'. You will also learn how to set goals and outcome measures, and establish a prognosis at the initial consultation. You will also need to explain why a course of treatment is needed. Ultimately, you must ensure that each patient feels in control of their decision-making.

  1. THE SECOND CONSULTATION
What is important to say at the beginning of the second visit? What do you need to do during your re-evaluation? How do you assess the initial response to treatment and continue the education process? How do you discuss goals and preferences with the patient? How do you explain treatment options and let the patient decide? How do you communicate your diagnosis, prognosis and management to other health care professionals?
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

Being an expert means that you must continuously expand your thinking. Are you using the latest concepts, phrasing and language to help a patent understand their problem, and the goals of your treatment? If you cannot confidently answer 'yes' to this question, that's a great reason to join us.

Dr Anthony Nicholson will lead you through 7.5 hours of practical neuroscience that will refine the way you communicate to your patients and improve your clinical outcomes.
