Note: As part of our ongoing process of
improving benefits to our members, IASP is currently reviewing the
functionality of our forums to ensure they meet the needs of our
members. During this review, we will close the IASP Members discussion
forum. Special Interest Group forums will not be affected at this time.
If you have any questions about the IASP Members forum, please contact
Kathy Kreiter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is an online discussion forum?
An online discussion forum is a way for you, as an IASP member, to
contact a wide group of other IASP members to discuss various topics in
the field of pain. You can ask or answer questions, share information
about your research or local activities, and network with other members
around the globe.
How does it work?
Joining a discussion forum is like being part of an interactive
mailing list. All messages added to the forum are sent to all members of
that forum. You can participate by email by replying to any message sent
from another member of the forum, or you can add messages directly to
the IASP site. Each member of a forum has the opportunity to contribute
to every conversation.
Which forums are for me?
IASP currently offers more than 20 different discussion forums, each
with a different purpose. If you are a trainee member and want to know
what trainees in other countries are doing, join the Trainee Members
forum. Are you curious about the reasoning behind the new draft pain
taxonomy? Join the Taxonomy Discussion forum. In addition, if you are a
member of one of the 14 Special Interest Groups, you can join the forum
specifically for that SIG.
Before you start, a few simple rules:
- All messages should be related to issues that concern the discussion
forum topic. Commercial content is prohibited.
- Include a subject line describing the topic of your message.
Identify yourself in each message with your signature, including your
name, association, and email address.
- Replying directly from your email account will send your response to
the entire list. All discussion forum messages are
received by all forum participants.
- Please conduct yourself professionally. Do not use or distribute
abusive, profane, obscene, or derogatory language or content or submit
any message that violates any proprietary or privacy rights. Doing so
will result in termination of your ability to use the discussion
