Looking Through the Lens of Virtual Pain Care
Friday, June 4, 2021
The APEC Planning Committee developed an educational outreach forum, together with providers working in rural and northern regions of Alberta, to address identified learning gaps.
This event delivered evidence informed presentations to empower physicians and allied health care providers with updated pain management strategies, treatments, tools and resources.
Presentations from willing participants have begun to be released! They will be live on our YouTube Channel every Tuesday and Friday. Keep an eye on our social media for updates or subscribe to our Channel to be notified when we publish a presentation!
