Pain is a global phenomenon which affects the quality of life that many people experience. It is not specific to any group, yet causes major disruptions in the workforce leading to economic and productivity losses. Pain management involves complex treatment sometimes with several medications and the input of a multidisciplinary team of health professionals. It also provides an ever expanding market for big pharma companies to provide new and more effective treatments.

Join us for Visiongain's 9th Annual Pain Management Conference where we will be examining new guidelines and regulations due to be released in early 2012. You will gain an insight into new developments in all aspects of pain from clinical through to economic advances and regulation updates from well respected speakers within pharma, academic research and clinical practice. We will be highlighting therapeutic challenges and new developments for effective treatments along with the devices and medications used to carry these out. This will be an excellent opportunity for you to gain new knowledge about the ever evolving world of pain management and a chance to meet face to face with the people at the forefront of new developments to network and share ideas in an interactive learning environment.
