23rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Pain Society to be held May 6-9 in Vancouver

Glenview, IL (April 7, 2004) The proceedings of the 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Pain Society (APS) will be held May 6-9, at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre. This year, the APS meeting will be held as a joint scientific conference with the Canadian Pain Society. APS is the leading multidisciplinary professional society in the United States dedicated to advancing pain-related research, education, treatment and team-oriented professional practice. The American Pain Society's website is www.ampainsoc.org.

Treatment Strategies for Pediatric Pain

A full-day symposium, "Changing the Face of Pediatric Pain" will be held on May 5, and will cover a variety of topics on research, clinical management and social and psychological support for children with chronic pain. Three noteworthy sessions are: "Teaching Parents to Help Children in Pain," Pain in Sickle-cell Disease" and "Defining Outcomes for Clinical Trials in Pediatric Pain."

Opioid Therapy at the Crossroads

Several scientific presentations will review the latest scientific, clinical, social and policy developments related to opioid therapy for chronic pain. Despite growing evidence from controlled trials supporting use of these medications for severe chronic pain, they have been shrouded in controversy due to concerns about abuse potential, regulatory sanctions and confusion between physical dependence and addiction. The focus at the APS meeting will be on providing guidance to physicians, patients and policy makers regarding appropriate use of opioid medications.
