The Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) has been largely excluded in multidisciplinary rehabilitation services, whether clinic-based or home-/community-/work-based. Perhaps the most significant barrier has been the misperception that massage therapy is a “passive” modality. However, the absence of the RMT on the multidisciplinary team leaves out an important rehabilitation service. Dr. Wesley Buch surveys much of the recent literature and developments in chronic pain management, and articulates the role for massage therapy. This course is a recording of Wesley's presentation at the 2014 Pain Research Conference sponsored by Pain BC and the Massage Therapists Association of British Columbia.

INSTRUCTOR

Dr. Buch is a registered psychologist (#1186) who practices in the area of clinical and rehabilitation psychology. Following his internship in the Psychology Department of WorkSafe BC, he continued to work there in criminal injury cases, complex case management and especially interdisciplinary rehabilitation.
In 1996 he became Manager of the Pain Programs at WorkSafe BC and quality assurance manager of the provincial network of pain programs – all responsibilities that fostered his interests in treatment innovation, outcome and quality assurance. In 1997 he co-founded Behavioural Health Care with an interest in individually-tailored, cognitive-behavioural approaches to chronic conditions that emphasize the home, community facilities and workplace as a rehabilitation clinic.
