The European Pain Federation (EFIC) will hold its 10th biennial conference in the Bella Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark from September 6-9 2017. This four-day event, titled “Bringing Pain Relief to All Patients” will bring together some 4,000 leading researchers, clinicians and people treating patients from across Europe and the world to discuss different aspects of pain treatment such as anesthesiology, neurology, cancer pain, psychology, and physiology, as well as its policy implications.

Some of the world’s leading pain experts will be presenting at the conference such as: Tim Deer (neuromodulation), Stephen Ward (2016 NICE Guideline on evidence based management of low back pain and sciatica), Ruth Defrin (stress and pain), Mary Ann Fitzcharles (medical cannabis), Henrik Kehlet and Dan Carr (Post-op pain), and Serge Perrot (fibromyalgia). The full program is available at:http://www.efic2017.kenes.com.

Next to presentations and workshops on cutting edge pain research, the conference will also provide refresher courses related to pain medicine on topics such as: pain practice, neuropathic pain, acute pain, pain related to cancer, musculoskeletal pain, and special pain populations.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to complete the first part of the exam for the European Diploma in Pain Medicine (EDPM) at EFIC2017 on Saturday, September 9th. The EDPM is a flagship educational project of the European Pain Federation and took place for the first time this year. The goal of the EDPM is to improve the standard of pain assessment and treatment through the provision of a qualification for all medical professionals that tests their broad understanding of all types of pain and their treatment. The deadline to register for the exam is August 26th.
