Clinical Pain Advisor will bring you live coverage of the 17th World Congress on Pain, held September 12 to 16, 2018, in Boston, Massachusetts. At this annual conference, organized by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), which it dubs “the largest gathering of pain scientists and health care providers in the world,” the latest developments in pain treatments and basic along with clinical pain research will be presented.
We will bring you in a clear, concise, and compelling way the most noteworthy advances in treatments for conditions ranging from fibromyalgia and low back pain to postherpetic neuralgia and osteoarthritis, as well as developments in hot topics in pain medicine with, for example, the use of cannabis for chronic pain, or of ketamine for low back pain.
“The [17th World Congress on Pain] program has something for everyone, regardless of your interest in pain, and brings together the most respected scientists, clinicians, and thinkers from around the world,” is noted in a video available on the World Congress website, mentioning an array of healthcare professionals (from basic scientists, researchers, and psychologists, to physical therapists and nurses) who would have interest in the research presented at the meeting.
