Letter from the President

Letter from the President

IASP has named 2020 as the Global Year for the Prevention of Pain where we will focus on primary, secondary as well as tertiary prevention. We hope this advocacy campaign brings together the global community to disseminate pain prevention strategies to researchers, clinicians, and patients in the hopes of achieving better patient outcomes and contributing to IASP’s mission statement of working toward pain relief worldwide.

As pain professionals, it is our duty to communicate pain prevention methods to patients and the general public in order to ensure proper care at the proper time and hopefully avoid chronic pain for developing or, at the very least, lessen the impact it has on daily functioning and quality of life. As experts in the field, we need to give those living with pain the tools to prevent pain and self-manage pain that is occurring.
