Blog: Call for Abstracts for IFPP

January 14th, 2013

We are delighted to announce the formal call for abstracts for the 9th International Forum on Pediatric Pain (IFPP) which will be held in Nova Scotia, Canada on October 3-6th, 2013. We are currently accepting abstracts through our website:

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 clinical workshop on hypnosis for pediatric pain management. And, of course, our famous Nordic swim event will be back, better than ever!

The abstract submission deadline is March 15, 2013 – abstracts can be uploaded directly using our website now at Early registration will be open shortly.
