I’m super pleased to share the following learning event, being held on campus on November 2. It is in partnership with the Dalhousie Pain Group and the Action Atlantic Pain Society.
Human Resources is conducting a learning session for faculty and staff facing challenges with Pain on November 2 from 12:00pm – 1:30pm in the Student Union Building, Room 224. Participants in this session will be presented with information and resources to better understand what pain is, how it may manifest in the body and options available to address the physical effects. Approaches for self-care and methods of coping will be discussed, as well as improving communication with health care providers. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the session leaders. The goal is to empower people with pain to make better decisions to better address obstacles.

Keep watch for other events related to Pain Management, such as the Food-Pain connection, throughout the month of November.
