CONFERENCE THEMES

Education/Research

All sessions aim to provide relevant and valuable information and resources to attendees. It is especially important for people with the lived experience (PWLE) of pain to understand what is available to them; that they can be involved in various research, clinical, and advocacy efforts; and how to get started in areas that interest them

Connection

This conference will connect PWLE and pain advocates with one another, as well as connect them to research, resources, education, and clinicians and researchers who are co-designing and coproducing work with PWLE and pain advocates.

Health Equity and Cultural Adaptations

The conference will focus on ensuring equitable integration with a specific focus on marginalized groups (racial, gender, indigenous populations, socioeconomic status); access to care and barriers to care; ensuring care, research, etc. are culturally adapted to local audiences.

Registration deadline periods conclude at 11:59 p.m. ET on the final day of the eligible registration period.
