Managing Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, defined as pain lasting for more than three months, is a condition that affects 20-40% of adults around the world. According to WorkSafe BC, chronic pain ranks as the second leading cause of workers’ compensation claims, trailing only mental health disorders. Although anyone can experience chronic pain, research highlights that some occupations are at a higher risk of experiencing it and caregiving is one of them.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the nature and profound impact of chronic pain in the workplace. We’ll also analyze factors contributing to chronic pain and share evidence-based, practical strategies specifically tailored for caregivers. We hope to empower caregivers with occupation-specific insights and equip them with tools to prevent, manage, or address chronic pain in their crucial roles.

Participants will learn how to:

Understand and describe the forces influencing the experience of chronic pain.
Identify factors that have the potential to exacerbate or alleviate chronic pain.
Create personal strategies for preventing or managing chronic pain.
