About this event

  • Date and time Wed 24 Mar 2021 from 9:30am to 4:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Occupational Medicine, Pain Medicine

The occupational health and pain clinicians deal with the employees with spinal pain almost on a daily basis. The physical, psychological, social and economic impact of spinal pain on the suffering employee and the employer are substantive.

This interactive webinar will present the audience with a multidisciplinary approach to the prevention and management of spinal pain in the working population, and also with modern pain management interventions.

Join us to discuss a variety of topics and disciplines within the programme that will be of interest to both occupational health and pain clinicians.

Participants can expect to be:

  • Familiar with the current state of the art pain interventions procedures
  • Able to compare the current pain management interventions in the UK with the practice in the US
  • Encouraged to have a clear communication with different components of a multidisciplinary expert team in management of spinal pain in relation to the employment issues

A CPD certificate with 4 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
