Pink Flags are psychosocial predictors of good or positive outcomes. They are directly opposite from yellow flags which are psychosocial predictors of poor or negative outcomes. Tendinopathy can be difficult to manage and it can be important to shift someone's beliefs and fears in order for them to buy into an active management strategy. In this course topic specialist, Ebonie Rio talks about using the concept of pink flags to promote self-efficacy amongst tendinopathy patients.
