Alison qualified as an osteopath in 2001. She is currently undertaking a Masters of Pain Management through the Sydney University Medical School and Royal North Shore Pain Management Research Institute. She has lectured at Australian Catholic University, Victoria University and RMIT in a variety of science and clinical subjects. She has also worked as part of the teaching team at Deakin University Medical School and is currently working in clinical practice in a multidisciplinary clinic in Melbourne, Australia.

In this episode Alison and I discuss way in which we can engage other healthcare practitioners to adopt the biopsychosocial model of care vs the biomedical model of care for a more holistic treatment of patients. In this podcast you can expect to learn:
* How to engage other healthcare professionals in a healthy discussion of the biopsychosocial model
* Why pain science is important in the treatment of your clients/patients
* What is the “busy practice selection bias”, how does it afect your practice and finally how can you overcome it
* Why it is important to set your clients/patients expectation early and how to fulfill those expectation.
* How to shift the culture of your clinic from passive treatment of your clients/patients to active treatments that empower your clients/patients.
