Previous IFPP Conferences & IFPP Publications

The International Forum on Pediatric Pain began in 1996, organized by the faculty of the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research. They hoped to create a multidisciplinary, stimulating, and educational workshop with researchers from around the world. Since then, each Forum has brought together scientists and clinicians for plenary lectures, interactive workshops, and peer-reviewed poster sessions. Held at White Point Beach Resort, IFPP offers a quaint, relaxed atmosphere which allows for networking between colleagues and sharing of current research in all areas of pediatric pain.
