Jordi Miró, PhD, (Spain)
Professor of Health Psychology
Director of the Chair in Pediatric Pain, University Rovira i Virgili
I have been a member of the IASP since 1988. My past service and experience with IASP is related to my being a Member of the Education initiatives working group (2010-2016) and a Member of the Task Force of the IASP Interprofessional Pain Curriculum. I am also an active member of the SIGs of “Pain in Childhood”, and “Pain Education”.
As a scientist-practitioner, I have been developing and studying the efficacy of psychosocial pain treatments, primarily as they relate to youths with chronic pain. My research interests are related to the development and evaluation of measures of pain, as well as on the development and evaluation of psychosocial pain treatments. I am also interested in helping developing Ibero-American multidisciplinary research networks in the area of pediatric pain. My teaching activities focus on mentoring postdoctoral research fellows in the skills needed for a successful independent research career in the field of pain.
