COVID-19 has done a lot of damage since 2020 and is still going strong. Indeed, as you know, this virus can persist as long COVID for some people and symptoms such as pain and fatigue can appear and even persist over time.  This live course will explore the management of these patients with long COVID based on the scientific evidence we have so far as well as the scientific evidence we have on other post-viral syndromes. We will discuss in this course how this knowledge can be applied to patients with long COVID.

The immune system is coming into focus as being a key player in the experience of pain and fatigue. This presentation will explore the role of the immune system in managing inflammation and how pro-inflammatory states, following injury or an infection (such as COVID-19), can lead to a sensitized nervous system and result in pain and fatigue. The clinical implications of managing patients with sensitized neuroimmune systems, who present with joint pain, will be discussed.

Prof Romy Parker and Jacqui Koep are both physiotherapists with strong clinical backgrounds and several post-graduate qualifications in Pain management. They like nothing more than to share knowledge and debate complex clinical scenarios such as the evolving treatment protocols of long COVID.

    The 2 instructors were very knowledgeable with their subject matter and good chemistry between the two. There were some redundant comments with the more advanced theoretical parts.

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner’s license or regulation. Continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care. By participating in this course, the participant agrees to respect his/her professional scope of practice.

The instructors speak in English. However, you have the option of activating English or French subtitles.

Handouts are also available in both languages.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
