The SPPM Board of Directors is delighted to announce the creation of two NEW Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
Creating, Maintaining, and Supporting Pediatric Pain Services SIG
There is little information on how to create a new pediatric pain service in institutions that do not have them, or how to maintain and/or optimize existing pain management services. This SIG is dedicated to promoting effective and sustainable operational models of pediatric acute pain services adapted to individual institutional needs and resources. If you are interested in joining this group or for more information, please contact Dr. Alina Lazar at [email protected].
Intensive Interdisciplinary Pain Treatment SIG
Intensive Interdisciplinary Pain Treatment (IIPT) programs use a biopsychosocial approach to improve functioning for pediatric patients with a variety of chronic pain conditions that result in significant functional and physical impairment. The purpose of this SIG is to promote collaboration and research. If you are interested in joining this SIG or for more information, please contact Dr. Eugene Kim at [email protected].
