4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress
Dear member of the multidisciplinary pain team,
On behalf of the organising committee we would like to welcome you to the 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress, held at the new congress centre of Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
After the success of the 3rd biannual International Pain Congress we decided to expand our possibilities and present a four-day, multidisciplinary congress on pain management, filled with internationally well-known speakers and state-of- the-art lectures, served to you in a vibrant city with energizing atmosphere.
Besides the low back pain workshop, we also made arrangements for other special workshops like cancer pain & palliative care, on the nature of evidence and the role of trails in pain medicine, ISO 9001 certification, radiology and complex regional pain syndrome. The ultrasound for pain medicine course is organised for the second time now in The Netherlands and we also made arrangements for an ultrasound for regional anesthesia course, provided by several excellent speakers/performers from around the world.
An excellent programme for specialist pain nurses is constructed. Special full-day or half-day programmes are available for electrostimulation and intrathecal drug delivery, as well as a special workshop about the role of frequency and pediatric pain management. Attention is being payed towards pain management in the developing world and towards a special symposium from the International Federation of Health and Human Rights Organisations (IFHHRO). Also included are presentations of papers and posters, judged by a scientific committee, awarding the three best papers and posters with a financial gift.
The 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress tries to address those items that you need for managing the pain of your patients more accurately.
Hoping to see you at the 4th biannual International Multidisciplinary Pain Congress,
David van den Tol,
Kenneth van Tilburg.
