Do you find helping people with chronic illnesses overwhelming at times? As allied health professionals, we are well placed to gain a strong understanding and knowledge of the root causes of persistent pain and fatigue syndromes. This will strengthen your therapeutic alliance and can lead to incredible outcomes.

Join exercise physiologist Jennifer Smallridge in debunking the myths around invisible illnesses, and learn how to provide evidence based support to this population group. You'll walk away with practical, helpful strategies and a deep appreciation for our amazing autonomic nervous systems.
