President’s Message
As COVID-19 continues to affect in-person events, IASP recognizes the continued demand for resources to stay up-to-date on the latest pain science and clinical practice advancements.
The IASP Virtual Education Events platform is the newest member benefit, providing a host of events that bring multidisciplinary global pain experts to you. Registration for these events is free for IASP members.
Registration is open for two important events:
Just as IASP supports your efforts in working towards pain relief, IASP Virtual Education Events supports your career with opportunities to earn CE/CMEs, network with pain professionals from around the world, and access the latest advances in current pain science.
I encourage you to not only take advantage of free registration, but to also inform friends and colleagues of these exciting educational opportunities.

Chinese Association for the Study of Pain (CASP)
The Chinese Association for the Study of Pain (CASP) is dedicated to pain research, management, education and awareness, social services, and the development of academic and professional activities related to the fields of pain medicine. Thanks to our three decades of effort, the Chinese National Ministry of Health ordered the establishment of a pain management department in national hospitals in 2007, elevating pain medicine to a first-class clinical department.
IASP is turning the spotlight on members! Get to know your global colleagues, how they’re working towards global pain relief, and what the association means to them.
