Blog: IFPP Deadline Extended
March 15th, 2013
Due to popular demand the abstract submission deadline for the 9th International Forum on Pediatric Pain (IFPP), which will be held in Nova Scotia, Canada on October 3-6th, 2013, will be extended to April 5, 2013!
Until then, we will be accepting abstracts through our website: http://pediatric-pain.ca/home/forum-on-pediatric-pain/
The IFPP is a biennial series of meetings focusing on cutting edge research and clinical practice in the area of pediatric pain, first hosted by Drs. Patrick McGrath and Allen Finley in 1996. The theme of the 9th IFPP is: ‘Current Trends in Acute and Procedural Pain Management’.
We have an impressive line-up of speakers on topics ranging from: individual differences in pain, long term effects of pain, infant pain, peri/postoperative pain management, pain in the pediatric emergency department, behavioural health and virtual reality, and changing practice.
This year we will also offer a unique opportunity for conference delegates . . . a clinical skills workshop on hypnosis for pediatric pain management , suitable for all health professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, psychologists, etc) led by Dr. Leora Kuttner.
And, of course, our famous Nordic swim event will be back, better and colder than ever!
The abstract submission deadline has been extended to April 5, 2013 – abstracts can be uploaded directly using our web site now at http://pediatric-pain.ca/home/forum-on-pediatric-pain/. Early registration will be open shortly. Authors will be emailed notification of acceptance of their posters by May 5, 2013.
Submission of abstracts for poster presentation can relate to any aspect of pain in children, and can be a work in progress, original data or theory, previously published data or theory, a topical review, or a clinical case. The body of the abstract should consist of no more than 300 words and follow the outline below (as appropriate): Title; Authors; Affiliations; Authors’ addresses; Objective; Design; Setting; Participants; Procedures; Measures; Results; Conclusions; References; Citation (if previously published). Abstracts must be in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format and text should be no smaller than 12 point font. Abstracts will not be published, so presentation does not preclude submission to another meeting before or after IFPP.
Questions about the meeting and registration can be directed to our email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you at White Point in October 2013!
