The World Congress on Pain, conducted by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), is a biannual, international event which focusses on pain research and treatment. Drawing up to 6,000 attendees from around the world, the Congress allows participants and presenters the opportunity to engage in education, information sharing and networking, to further their work in various areas related to pain research and treatment. Over the course of the Congress, 2,000 posters will be displayed.

Both areas of research seek to identify the levels of spiritual distress in those who experience chronic pain, the relationship between these variables, and the implications for treatment programmes.
Members of the Greenwich Pain Programme team (Pictured below at the book launch in August 2012), Pain Specialist Professor Phillip Siddall, Sr Rebecca, and Psychologist Dr Robin Murray Co-Authored The Pain Book, a highly successful “handbook” for those who suffer pain. The book provides the reader with an understanding of pain, its causes, mechanisms and processes as well as helpful information on treatments and exercises.
