A Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) has been created to lead the rollout of this meeting.

As Chairs of the CHANGE PAIN Masterclass SSC (together with other SSC members), we will be driving the meeting agenda and ensuring a fair and balanced scientific clinical program.

 

The CHANGE PAIN Masterclass aims to:

 

  • Challenge current pain management paradigms
  • Ignite international cross-collaboration between physicians
  • Share key learnings and best practice to drive the best outcomes for patients in 2019 and beyond

 

 

The CHANGE PAIN Masterclass will consist of various sessions, including debates, workshops, lectures and meet the expert sessions.

The following themes will be addressed:

  • Understanding key concepts in pain
  • Accurate diagnosis of pain and current challenges
  • Treatment of pain and challenges faced
  • Future of pain management

 

We do hope you can join us at the CHANGE PAIN Masterclass and we look forward to welcoming you.
