Pain in Europe – Translating Evidence into Practice


Vienna

In 2013 EUSJA sent its journalists to Florence – to participate the prestigious European biannual congress “Pain in Europe”. This interesting scientific meeting always attracts science journalists since is giving a good chance to meet famous researchers and world’s leading pain experts. We’ve got many applications to attend the Congress and a good feedback from our members.

This year the 9-th Congress of the European Pain Federation, EFIC 2015, will take a place in Vienna (September 2 – 5). The preliminary programme is already available to http://efic.kenes.com/. Some outstanding scientists were announced among the speakers: Andrew Moore (UK), Ralf Baron (Germany​), Michaela Kress (Austria), Rebeccah Slater (UK), Liesbet Goubert (Belgium), Michele Sterling (Australia), Kris Vissers (Netherlands), Luana Colloca, Vania Apkarian (both – USA) and others.

EUSJA continues its fruitful collaboration with the organizers of the Congress. We have 8 slots. The organizers will cover accommodation up to 4 nights (starting from September 1), the journalists, like always to EUSJA study trips, will take care of their traveling.  The applications must be sent via national associations: name, media, e-mail, mobile.
