4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress

Dear colleagues,

Dear members of multidisciplinary pain teams,

On behalf of the organising committee we would like to welcome you to the 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress, which will be held at the new 040 Congress & Events Centre at the Van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on 1-4 October 2014.

Following the success of our third congress in Middelburg, we have decided to expand the concept and present a four day multidisciplinary meeting on pain management, including internationally renowned speakers and state-of-the art lectures, in a vibrant location and an energising atmosphere. Faculty will be running special full day and half day programmes/workshops on such topics as low back pain, pain management in the developing world, paediatric pain management, cancer pain and palliative care, electrical stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery, radiology, complex regional pain syndrome and the role of trials in pain medicine

A two day ultrasound for pain medicine course will be organised for the second time in The Netherlands by Dr Philip Peng from Toronto.  There will also be a two day advanced course on ultrasound for regional anaesthesia with expert teachers from Europe and further afield.

We are delighted that a conference for pain nurses is on the agenda for the congress. Furthermore special attention is being given towards pain management in the developing world and to a symposium from the International Federation of Health and Human Rights Organisations (IFHHRO) as well as the first ever symposium on the role of frequency in neuromodulation.

There will be an opportunity to present free oral papers and posters at the congress with the three best presentations being awarded a financial gift.

The 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress will address those items that you require for managing the pain of your patients more effectively. We hope to see you at the meeting in October 2014.

With best regards,

Reinier Goosens,
David van den Tol,
