Event/Session Summary

Technology, Innovation, and Progress Symposium in Pain Education (TIPS for PainEd)

Full Day SIG Satellite Symposium
Hosted By: Pain Education SIG

Pain Education is a global, interprofessional challenge. As pain science and knowledge has expanded dramatically in recent decades, pain education has lagged due to slow adoption by academic institutions and health system factors. Nonetheless, needs for pain-expert clinicians have increased over time. The use of technology and innovative educational methods can help alleviate this crisis. 

The purpose of this symposium is to support the development of faculty and trainees interested in technology-based innovation in pain education. This full day symposium will include plenary sessions, interactive workshops, and a poster session in order to facilitate communication, exchange, and transformative change.
