Dr. Miquidade, became an IASP member because she is president of the Mozambican Association for the Study of Pain and responsible for the largest Pain Unit in her country. Dr. Miquidade said, “The only way we have to learn is to be connected with the experts in the field, to see how they do it, to ask for opinion, and to try to adapt it to our reality.
