Lecture

Understanding and managing pelvic girdle pain from a person-centred biopsychosocial perspective

Dr Darren Beales will present a framework for clinical management of pelvic girdle pain (PGP) froma a person-centred biopsychosocial perspective. This presentation is aimed to guide clinicians to progress from knowledge to doing in an evidence-informed manner. The biopsychosocial framework is aligned with current pain science and with the Common-Sense Model of Illness. It highlights the importance of communication and the therapeutic alliance in helping a person make sense of their PGP through experience and reflection. This framework helps a person build their confidence and self-efficacy, leading to positive behaviour and lifestyle changes. The framework encourages conceptualisation of what represents high-quality care.

This lecture is held at APA WA Office in Bentley.
