“Working together is to succeed”
The conference theme will focus on the role of multidisciplinary team management and the importance of partnership to help identify, treat and understand the nature of this disabling pain condition. High-calibre international speakers, excellent networking opportunities and a range of cutting-edge workshops & demonstrations will ensure that this conference will be a huge success.
On behalf of the Organising Committee I am delighted to invite you and your team to join us in Cork as we host the IASP Special Interest Group (SIG) on Complex Regional Pain syndrome (CRPS). This is going to be truly an unique conference where the leading researchers, academics, clinicians and axillary healthcare providers will meet to exchange thoughts, develop new policy and plan the future treatment of this important pain condition.
The theme of the conference in 2017 will focus around the role of the multidisciplinary team management and the importance of partnership to help identify, treat and understand the nature of this disabling pain condition: “working together is success”.
I believe that the role of industry in this partnership is crucial if we are to continue to understand the pathophysiology of CRPS, identify new treatments and develop new modalities, including using technology, for this important medical condition.
The scientific committee under the guidance of Dr. Lone Knudsen has created a program which reflects the significant changes, developments to date, and recognises the future challenges. An international faculty of experts will ensure that this will be an outstanding conference that will meet the needs of all delegates.
Finally, I warmly welcome you to a wonderful city an excellent venue, where there will be several opportunities to network and discuss the future of CRPS management with the top experts in the field.
