International Symposium on Pediatric Pain
1 – 5 October 2023
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
The 2023 International Symposium on Pediatric Pain (ISPP) theme is Better Together, Innovation Through Partnerships. Under the direction of the Scientific Program Committee, led by Jennifer Rabbitts and Julia Wager, there will be rigorous science, real-life stories, and knowledge sharing to build capacity in the pediatric pain community. We hope to foster partnerships and innovation through joint learning of the best international research.
Attendees will learn from innovative leaders in pediatric pain science, clinical care, and those with lived experiences, through keynote plenary lectures, concurrent sessions, and workshops.
The theme for education day will be knowledge mobilization, taking knowledge outside the box. This will feature exciting new approaches to knowledge mobilization, leveraging partnerships, and creative engagement with diverse stakeholders to ensure research findings are put into practice and can benefit patients, their families, and the health professionals that care for them. The workshops will include tools, and strategies researchers and others can use to maximize their work.
The 14th ISPP will be co-hosted by the Center for Pediatric Pain Research and Solutions for Kids in Pain, in partnership with Discover Halifax.
