24/7 Recovery Principles for Injury Management
Patients often experience psychosocial challenges when dealing with an injury, and statements like the ones below are likely ones you are familiar with. These feelings and expressions can undermine the recovery process if they are not recognized and managed. Engaging with patients in a meaningful and supportive manner is important in a client-centred approach.
Do any of the following statements sound familiar?
✔ “I just want my life back”
✔ “I’m tired of talking about my injury to everyone”
✔ “It’s your (therapist) job to get me better”
✔ “I do my rehab exercises but don’t feel like I am getting anywhere”
✔ “This just isn’t fair; I’ll never be able to do <that> again”
✔ “No-one seems to understand what I’m going through”
✔ “I have a high pain threshold but this is just too much”
✔ “I don’t see how this is ever going to get better”
✔ “I keep telling people how I am feeling but nobody seems to listen to me”
✔ “I'm normally a quick healer, so why is this taking so long?”
This webinar will introduce Recovery Principles that can be woven into your conversations with patients when these challenging topics are presented so that you can help them adopt a 24/7 approach to managing and optimizing their recovery.
