Presenter: Alison Sim

This webinar covers the basics of pain physiology and the clinical take home messages for acute to chronic pain transition.  It is designed to be an introductory lecture on the concepts of the differences between acute and chronic pain and why the approaches to treating them need to be different.  

Alison covers:

  • Acute pain processing 

  • Why context is really important in a pain setting 

  • The physiological changes that occur as acute pain becomes chronic 

  • Why it is important for us as clinicians to understand this physiology in the clinic 

  • How we can better target acute pain to prevent it’s transition to chronic pain 

  • What are approaches known to best meet the needs of patients with chronic pain
