Course Content: Person-centered care and self-management are considered to be an important component of contemporary musculoskeletal pain management. However, evidence suggests that person-centered care and self-management support are often insufficiently integrated in musculoskeletal practice. Moreover, healthcare providers experience barriers to integrate person-centered care and self-management support into their clinical practice. In this session, a recently published framework to support clinicians to deliver person-centered care in musculoskeletal practice will be presented. This framework consists of three overarching key principles: 1) a biopsychosocial understanding of the person’s experience; 2) person-focused communication; and 3) supported self-management. An evidence based practical approach to providing person-centered care, including self-management support, will be presented, including examples and recently developed tools.
