President’s Message

IASP Virtual Series on Pain & Expo
The IASP Virtual Series on Pain & Expo has begun! We are excited to offer six months of live and on-demand sessions for you to access the latest pain research and clinical updates including topical workshops, poster presentations, patient sessions, industry symposia, expo hall, virtual lounge, and more. You will be amazed to see what IASP has been able to produce in a short amount of time.
Help shed light on chronic pain
September is Pain Awareness Month, where IASP, together with various organizations, works to raise awareness of chronic pain. This month is a time to engage with the broader public to raise awareness and for IASP Chapters to push decision makers to focus on pain management. This year is particularly important as care for pain patients may likely be impacted as healthcare systems struggle with the pandemic.
IASP has crafted a collection of free resources, tools, and images to help you spread awareness. I encourage you to not only disseminate these resources, but also share your story in treating, managing, and/or researching pain; and I hope our Chapters will play an important role as well. 
The key to raising awareness is to get involved. Here are three easy ways you can join the movement:
  • Use #PainAwarenessMonth on social media
  • Use #MyPainPlan to share your plan to help advance multidisciplinary pain management or share your pain care plan
  • Share resources, tools, and images to show your support and help the movement reach a wider audience
“Good times come and go”
It has been a pleasure and an honor to serve as IASP president for the last two years. I truly enjoyed it. The staff, Executive Committee, and Council, have been constructive, collaborative, and wonderful to work with. Together we have made significant progress which has changed IASP for the future. Thanks to all our volunteers and members for your support and many suggestions. Finally, the General Assembly was held on 21 September. A recording will be emailed soon.
