More than one year into the COVID-19 pandemic, new research is emerging that provides insight into acute pain implications in the onset of COVID-19 infection and the complications and long-term impact of the disease on chronic pain. This complimentary virtual course will explore, through nine sessions over three days, various aspects of COVID-19, from the role of the healthcare provider and the review of the current science on management, through to the understanding of the patient’s journey and their decisions in self-management. The event will unite the pain community in education, exchange novel ideas, and promote engagement across care communities on the complexities of pain and COVID-19.
