Annual Persistent Post-Surgical Pain Symposium


Each year, the Institute for Pain Research & Care holds its annual Persistent Post-Surgical Pain Symposium. The target audience of the symposium is clinical researchers, basic scientists, behavioural scientists, rehabilitation scientists, residents, students and other healthcare professions.

Learning objectives include:

  • Sharing cutting edge evidence as it relates to persistent post-surgical pain and acquiring knowledge in this area
  • Discussion of challenges and future directions regarding the study of persistent post-surgical pain

The 2020 and 2021 Persistent Post-Surgical Pain Symposia were cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
