The Course

Two Days of Cutting Edge Pain Science
27-28 June 2020
08:30 - 17:00

Trust Me, I'm A Physiotherapist and NOI NL are really excited to welcome Lorimer Moseley back to Amsterdam. Lorimer draws on over 25 years of clinical pain research and practice to lead you on a journey through the conceptual underpinnings of modern pain rehabilitation, cutting edge pain-related cognitive and clinical neuroscience, critical pain-related thinking, clinical reasoning and treatment principles. 

The first part of the course focuses on translating the substantial developments in modern pain science into clinically-friendly language and bite-size concepts. The second part focuses on modern understanding of how we can get people to reconceptualise their pain, introducing participants to the conceptual change pathway, from metaphors and stories to biological concepts and functional and management implications.

It will be intense, but it will also be fun and clinically applicable. 


  • To increase your knowledge of pain biology

  • To increase your ability to integrate this into your assessment & management of anyone in pain

  • To demonstrate that the biology of pain is both intuitively sensible and terrifically interesting

Le Pub Scientifique started in London 2012 as a regular meeting place for clinicians, therapists and (really) anyone working in the area of complex pain to come together and share ideas. It was inspired by the classic Pat Wall quote:



“Any discussion of work after 6pm can be done if it is outside the clinic/lab and with a drink in hand” !

We are continuing this tradition to Amsterdam and invite you to come talk with us, think with us and drink with us!

Le Pub Scientifique will host a number of well known and interesting experts from the painfield eg. Lorimer Moseley, Tim Beames, Roger Kerry, Tim Salomons, Jarod Hall, Julien von Kieverstein will or have shared their thoughts in Le Pub. Join us!
