Overview

About this Global
Year Campaign

The theme of the 2018 Global Year for Excellence in Pain Education is “Bridging the gap between knowledge and practice.” Our goal is to make a difference in four domains:

  • Public and Government Education
  • Patient Education
  • Professional Education
  • Pain Education Research

You will find publications, resources, and ways to participate in Global Year events on pain education on this page and on the pages to which each domain is linked.

Be sure to follow the #GYPainEducation conversation and IASP on LinkedInFacebook, and Twitter to learn about updates to this site.
