The scientific committee of the Pain, Mind & Movement: Applying Science to the Clinic satellite meeting welcomes submissions for oral presentations and clinical workshops. The satellite meeting is organized by the special interest group (SIG) on Pain, Mind and Movement of the International Association for the Study of Pain. It will be an exciting international, interdisciplinary event focusing on pain, the mind, and body movement. The satellite meeting will include keynote lectures from world leaders (Marco Loggia and Adriaan Louw) and ample opportunity for researchers to present their cutting-edge work.
One of the aims of the SIG is to facilitate the translation of evidence into clinical practice and to mediate the implementation of new diagnostics and treatments. This Satellite Meeting aims to address that aim through Clinical Workshops. Each Clinical Workshop will have a clear clinical focus within an evidence based perspective. The workshops will have little didactic lecturing, with the emphasis being on skills training, case studies and demonstrations. Evidence-based learning directly applicable to the clinical setting – doesn’t that sound like fun!
The Oral presentations will also take on a slightly different format. Presentations will be very short (3 minutes) followed by 3 minutes for questions and discussion. This gives us the opportunity to hear from 10 different speakers in one hour, a perfect opportunity for you or your students to present new work. Perhaps if you intend to submit a poster of your work to the World Congress, you might like to make an oral presentation on it at the Satellite Meeting.
