Virtual Event Virtual Event

We are pleased to announce a new course! 

Join: Miss Francesca Fratesi, Mr Dave Bosanquet (UK) and Dr Maria Cristina Sorella (Italy) and Dr. Steve Young (UK)

Objective: Pain management is one of the most difficult aspects on the care of the patient affected by PAD. A good assessment and treatment of pain is one of the most effective parts of the treatement both in preparation and for the postoperative care. It affects all patients with PAD at different level of severity so it is to be considered endemic. Focusing on its causes and medications and treatment available will improve the patient experience and their compliance to other aspect of their care.

After participating in this workshop, the attendees should be better able to:

  • Understand the current treatment landscape for different types of pain affecting the patient with PAD and the unmet need
  • Identify new and multidisciplinary treatment approaches for pain management
