Hi Everyone,
I've been practicing since 2003 and this is my first time mentoring a student. I volunteered to do this thinking it would be a great experience and it is, however I find myself more than ever searching for good resources and current literature so that I help lead her down the right path. I'm very pleased with some of the information I've found here on this site and look forward to sharing with you all. LL

Welcome! You will be able to find lots to learn about here. I'd suggest recommending your student join as well as this could be great for critical thinking clinically with your experience in addition to you both researching on SS.

Welcome OLauraLee,
There is a wealth of information on this site for you and your student. I currently have a student myself, and find frustrations with attempting to comply with information they are expected to know to pass a board exam vs. that which has been documented in the literature. I really make sure my students are able to understand pain and the treatment of pain.

If I can, I would like to recommend you guys both order and read Painful Yarns by Lorimer Moselely and progress to Explain Pain by Moselely and David Butler. Both are great resources in the treatment of pain in humans.

Welcome LauraLee. Happy to see another Canuck here!
Yes, students are a great way to stimulate one's own knowledge basis or challenges one's own assumptions!

Would you consider using the Welcome Forum to introduce yourself in a bit more depth? Not required of course, but it would make communication a bit easier for me.

have fun here!

Hi OLauraLee,
Welcome to SomaSimple!

(Bas, this thread is already in Welcome Forum - maybe it got moved here.)

Welcome LL.

Have you figured out what they're teaching the students about pain these days?

LauraLee , welcome to SS.
Glad to see your initiative to give your student a valuable experience, not alI CI's do. After taking the APTA's CI credentialing courses I realized how much more I could do to give PT students a better clinical experience.

Thank you everyone. I feel very welcomed and I'll definitely recommend my student join in. She's very keen and will have a lot to offer our profession.

A little more about me...... Graduated from Queen's University in 2003 and have worked in mainly outpatient ortho facilities including a short time in the US. Completed a variety of post graduated courses and have become credentialled in MDT. Avid runner, new mommy and pro physiotherapy.

I haven't read Painful Yarns by Lorimer Moselely but I have read Explain Pain by Moselely and David Butler. I really liked Jason Silvernail's "Understanding Mechanical Pain" and Bahram Jam's "When a back goes out" and "The Pain Truth". Now if only my student was getting the same info. Unfortunately, she told me she had 3 pain lectures and that it discussed the Gate Control theory, a little about fear avoidance and discussed treating pain. She admitted it was very disappointing and that she was eager to learn more from this placement.

Thanks again all. LL

Hi LL,
Again, welcome to SS.
Here is a link to Forum Moderators' Consensus On Pain. (In case you haven't happened upon it yet. )
