In 2021 the world saw vast numbers of people displaced globally including 27.1 million refugees, 53.2 million internally displaced persons, and 4.6 million asylum seekers. Today we are witnessing a time where forced displacement is an unfortunate reality. This phenomenon is more widespread now than it ever has been throughout history. The need for rehabilitation services to meet the needs of displaced persons at each stage of the migration process is an urgent and growing global issue. In this one-hour webinar, Zafer Altunbezel and Naomi O’Reilly will discuss how to assess and manage pain for displaced persons.
