Quality, Bias, and Integrity in Pain Research: Creating the Next Generation of Pain Science
In this symposium, we report on:

1) How to understand quality in both primary research and systematic review.
2) How spin (i.e., misdirection) and diversion occur.
3) The current state of scientific retractions in pain literature.
4) How we might explore the trustworthiness of pain evidence.


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.
