Laura provides consultation services for people all over the world that are experiencing highly complex presentation and pain conditions.
She can work individually or in consultation with existing clinical services.
As she works internationally, it is necessary that the person experiencing pain has been seen by a medical team. Laura prefers to work alongside a physiotherapist registered in that region or with a consultant medic (MD) such as an anaesthetist or surgeon. You will be asked to provide such evidence and communication channels for interdisciplinary collaboration will then be opened and maintained.
Multi-disciplinary working is 'Best Practice' when working with persistent pain, these steps ensure that Laura's role is part of your multi-disciplinary care and does not replace it.
Laura works with clinical teams and pain specialised units to promote multi-disciplinary working, develop team-wide knowledge on pain and facilitate biopsychosocial working across disciplines.
Her skills in managing communication compliment her deep experiential and theoretical knowledge on developing pain care services.

Laura is also able to produce bespoke education tailored to the clinical and relational needs that you may have.
