IASP PAIN, November 2019

President’s Message
An opportunity to share your research with the worldLars_PEM_image_196942.png

Your research, your work with patients, and your collaborations with others drives the advancement of pain science and management and impacts the pain field worldwide. The IASP World Congress on Pain is your chance to showcase that work on a global stage. By participating in the World Congress, you will belong to an organization that provides the opportunity to change the lives of millions of patients suffering from chronic pain.
The Call for Poster Abstracts for the IASP 2020 World Congress in Amsterdam will open on 16 December and I hope you will submit. The guidelines for posters are now available to help you prepare.
By submitting a poster abstract and sharing your work, you become a powerful contributor to the IASP World Congress and the pain community at large. We also encourage submitting patient-centred research. Get your work in front of more than 6,000 attendees from around the world. Plus, through the new online poster gallery, your work can be viewed outside of the World Congress by anyone, any time. You could attract the attention of global experts and make connections for collaborations on future projects. Presenting at the IASP World Congress not only opens doors to career opportunities but also helps advance pain science and raise the profile of pain treatment and management around the world.

I hope you will take advantage of this amazing opportunity. I look forward to seeing your work in Amsterdam.
Lars Arendt-Nielsen, Dr. Med., PhD

Featured Resource

The Brain on Opioids
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Appreciate why we see adverse selection, that being the phenomenon whereby individuals with the greatest demand for opioid pain treatment also present the greatest risk for adverse outcomes
  • Recognize that over use of exogenous opioids can overwhelm opioid-based survival mechanisms that may be perceived largely by their absence
  • Apply knowledge of endogenous opioid actions to clinical decision making when treating chronic pain
