AAPM is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak with a goal of providing pain medicine professionals with the news and information they need. Resources for health care providers responding to the COVID-19 crisis are emerging daily. Refer to CDC.gov and WHO.int for the most up-to-date guidance.
This CME webinar was originally presented on May 21 and addresses the practical aspects of revitalizing your practice in these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Panel members from both private and academic practices share their experiences about how to provide safe patient care and make your practice successful in the new environment. An interactive Q & A panel follows the presentation.
The official journal of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM), Pain Medicine, has published a practice guidelines article titled “Pain Management Best Practices from Multispecialty Organizations during the COVID-19 Pandemic and Public Health Crises” to assist pain medicine providers, health care leaders, and regulatory bodies as they respond to the COVID-19 crisis.
Pain Medicine also published guidance for pain fellows’ education and research during COVID-19 authored by representatives from APPD. “Pain fellows are the future of our specialty, and it’s critical that we provide them with the resources and guidance they need to effectively complete their training and launch their careers,” says Dr. Wasan.
