PainSolve Editorial Team
IASP Global Year
Every year, the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) hosts a Global Year to disseminate knowledge and raise awareness across a range of issues related to pain. This year, the theme is ‘Bridging the gap between knowledge and practice’, with an overarching goal to make a difference in four key domains:
- Public and Government Education
- Patient Education
- Professional Education
- Pain Education Research
EFIC® Education Platform
The European Pain Federation EFIC® is a multidisciplinary professional organisation in the field of pain science and medicine, representing 37 European National Pain Societies. As part of their commitment to furthering pain understanding, and of particular relevance during the Global Year for Excellence in Pain Education, they have developed the EFIC® Education Platform .
This resource compiles dozens of videos from EFIC® congresses and other scientific initiatives across a range of pain topics, with the primary aim of disseminating knowledge and initiating conversations. Professionally filmed symposia, lectures and debates from world-renowned experts in pain allow you to experience or relive these important events, and comments boxes on each video open a dialogue across a network of pain professionals.
Videos are viewable to all registered users free of charge, and searchable by title, author and topic.
"Education is, among research and advocacy, one of the three core missions of the European Pain Federation EFIC®. Indeed, by investing into a performant e-learning platform, we offer a service to our community. Furthermore, we try to fill the gap of inequity of the access to excellent pain education of all HCPs in Europe and the rest of the world. I thank all presenters for their generous contributions to the platform and encourage you to sign-in."
