Event/Session Summary

Survivors of Torture and Organized Violence: Pain in Context

 
Half Day SIG Satellite Symposium
Hosted By: Pain Related to Torture Organized Violence and War (TOVW) SIG

The first part of this symposium covers medical, physiotherapy, and psychological assessment, all from clinicians experienced in working with this population, with plenty of time for discussion and questions. The second part begins with an account of treatment trials run in low income countries, followed by a talk about how to create and use opportunities for research, very neglected but crucial in these populations, and some of the ethical issues that require attention. The symposium closes with a broader description of the work of the UNHCR and how pain can be better incorporated into it, and further discussion.
