Systematic Reviews in Pain Relief

The SIG on Systematic Reviews in Pain Relief aims to:

  • Foster a widespread interest in the production and science of systematic reviews and meta-analysis of the highest quality for pain management.
  • Provide a forum for dissemination of skills and reviews, providing assistance in the work of "discovering" relevant publications, quality control and scoring, and extracting data, to assist in maintaining the high profile of pain research and management in the wide context of health care.

The IASP SIG on Systematic Reviews in Pain Relief keeps an archive of published newsletters from 1997 to 2013.

Oxford Pain Internet Site

This site aims to be a "one-stop pain shop": a single site providing fast and easy access to all available information on evidence-based pain relief. Only reviews providing clear and clinically relevant messages are included on the Oxford Pain Internet Site, which will continually be updated as new reviews come along. The site also includes summary pages, adverse effects data, supporting links and references, a search function, and a "wisdom" section that provides various types of information, including methods of systematic review and the Oxford league table of analgesic efficacy.
