AGENDA & LEARNING OUTCOMES
- Understand that chronic pain often encompasses a mandatory glial component.
- Recognize the complexity of the non-neuronal constituent of chronic pain with all its associated potential pharmacological targets.
- Perceive that the description of a glial role in chronic pain in patients are still emerging compared to established data from animal models.
